Many Years of Banking Experience
We are a fully US based team with every developer having extensive bank experience. As a matter of fact, we used to be an internal development team for a bank, so we know the challenges you are facing: compliance, security, high-availability, systems integration. Don’t waste your time explaining what is “bank-obvious” to non-bank-based programmers.
We have developed more than twenty applications in the field of banking, including a full-featured web-based banking system, loan origination systems, compliance apps, document management systems, data-warehouse systems and custom add-ons to FIS Horizon™ and other core banking systems.
Company founders and executive team
The Bankwise team is led by two seasoned IT professionals, with support from talented executive and development staff. Collectively the team has spent more than 60 years in technical positions at banks, and more than 80 years in professional capacities in the IT and computer software fields.
Co-President and CTO
Sergei is a hands-on information technology manager with over 20 years of experience. Before founding BankWise he was Vice President of Technology for a well-respected regional financial institution, where he managed all aspects of technology including software development, IT/infrastructure, security and compliance. He has a proven ability to manage complex projects, build successful teams and design creative solutions that meet organization’s business goals.
Co-President and Director of Sales
Joe is a seasoned software executive and consultant. He was the CEO of HAPPY Software, Inc, a mid-sized software company that serves municipal governments in 48 states. The company produced software for financial management and government reporting in the field of Housing and Urban Development. It was acquired by MRI Software, LLC in 2018. Joe was all set to retire early until Sergei showed him the HAPPY Banker product and lured him back into the software business.
Chief Marketing Officer
Rob has been involved in financial services marketing for over 35 years and has served in senior level management positions throughout his career as a Marketing Director for community banks and a national bank during that time.
