Meet our Cardiff office

Our Cardiff Office officially opened in February 2017, but we started with a small team, (working from a pub!) in September 2016. In the UK, Backbase operates from two main locations: Cardiff and London. Cardiff is our biggest UK office and we plan to grow even more in the near future.

Benefits of working in our Cardiff office include:
  • Modern surroundings, great breakout spaces
  • Plenty of workspace and whiteboards, all actively used for collaboration
  • Modern technology provided (MacBooks, multi-monitors)
  • Free supply of snacks and sodas throughout the day and drinks after work
  • Free weekly lunch is brought in for the team on Wednesdays
  • Bar/Restaurant discount at a local hotel

At Backbase we accelerate the digital transformation of financial companies,by being digital first and creating superb user experiences. We take pride in doing agile properly and work with a modern mobile and web application development tech stack, backed by a robust Microservices architecture. We automate as much as we can.

Matt Collins, Office Experience Manager

"The office has a great buzz, the team are always hard at work, brainstorming at standups or taking 5 minutes break for a quick game of pool to get the creative juices going again. A fun group who enjoy spending time together, working hard and playing hard!”

Lea Bialachowski, Front End Developer.

"We’ve got a lot of ideas. There’s a lot of trust in the team and we are not afraid to have hard conversations to find the best solutions."

What our people say:
