FINkit People Series: Rachel Collier, Product Owner

1 Jan 2018

In this ongoing quick-fire ‘behind the scenes’ series, we meet FINkit people from across the business, giving you a flavour of who we are and what we do. Rachel works with the FINkit team, as a Product Owner and is based in our London offices.

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

My day starts with coaxing two pre-schoolers to get dressed and have their breakfast before I head to the office. As a Product Owner I work with development teams based in Istanbul, London and Cardiff. Daily scrums are by hangout, then it really depends where we are in the sprint. I could be presenting to stakeholders or planning the next sprint or refining requirements. Supporting the sales team or preparing for the next big initiative.

2. What’s the best thing about FINkit?

FINkit’s design means that it’s really quick to build new services I know will meet our client’s operational, security and compliance needs. It’s built into the platform. I have 20 years experience of working in FinTech and Financial Services and understand the importance of this.

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

Being a Product Owner allows me to work with teams all over the world. I love working with diverse, clever people.

4. Why are FINkit people different to anyone else?

We’ve built on our experience being industry leaders in mobile banking and developed a platform and toolkit that will enable banks to transform the way they develop and deliver new services on any channel to meet rising customer expectations, increasing regulatory changes and respond quickly to market disrupters.

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

I have two boys aged 2 and 4 so we spend Saturdays largely running around parks, visiting museums or going to deaf club. My eldest son is deaf so my whole family is learning BSL. Then Sunday lunch is the new Friday night, we love getting a crowd round for brunch or lunch then it’s back to the park for more fun.
