In the financial industry, speed is everything. Taking advantage of trends and market opportunities, but also responding to new regulations, means a constant focus on developing systems with lower latency, snappier GUIs and faster event handling.
But the development process itself also needs to be fast. Speed means being able to learn quicker - exploring new solutions, finding out what works, and innovating at a faster pace. All while keeping quality in mind and building it into every product so that it is easier to test and verify, which enables even faster development.
