FINkit People Series: Chris Locker

1 Feb 2017

In this ongoing FINkit people series, we meet people from across the business, giving you a flavour of who we are and what we do.

Chris Locker is a Software Development Manager at FINkit in our Cardiff office.

 

Hi Chris and thanks for answering our 5 quickfire questions today.

1. In a nutshell, what’s an average day for you?

I don’t have an average day; one day I can be heavily involved in planning for our teams’ next sprints, the next can be spent exploring interesting ideas/technologies with our partners/ prospective customers. It’s varied and I like it that way!

2. What’s the best thing about FINkit?

It significantly accelerates the rate at which teams can deliver value for their business. Something that all banks are looking to achieve.

3. What makes you want to come to work every day?

Things are always interesting and I get to work with some great colleagues. It is really exciting to see the look on customers’ faces when they come in and see what FINkit can do for them. When we can share the FINkit platform with new teams, for new purposes.

4. Why are we different to anyone else?

We’re focussed on removing the pain points that have always slowed teams down in the past. We have a particular focus on teams that need to work in regulated environments and that’s what FINkit solves.

5. What’s your go-to downtime activity?

When I’m away from work, I like to spend time cooking, walking, experimental gardening, and brewing my own beer.

 

Look out for our next featured employee on the first of each month in our FINkit People series.
