    PARTNERS & ALLIANCES

    Banking is changing rapidly. We’re on a mission to serve 10% of all smartphone users worldwide with a Backbase-powered financial app. Yes, that means 400 million people. Ambitious? Yes. Challenging? Absolutely. But we see it as exploring millions of initiatives and flexing our brain power.  

    The Partners & Alliances organization is the cornerstone for achieving this mission. We have an intrinsic drive to amaze customers with our partner ecosystem. Not just selling software, but by crafting unique and integrated solutions together with our services and technology alliances. This is how we impact an industry and change the way people experience banking globally.

It’s your job to work together with Sales, Solution Engineering and our Customer Success experts to drive innovation and provide a flawless user experience for the clients of your partners.
