“Where do you work? What on Earth is FinTech?”

Now I am in FinTech industry. “Huh? Fin what?” I can hear your thoughts.

Let me explain. “FinTech” is short for Financial Technology. Electronic payments, e-banking, electronic wallets — these are the kind of things we do in FinTech industry.

At this company at my current role, everyday I am learning so much about FinTech and Software Development in general [now you are thinking: “Software development”… another weird word].

To make it simple for you to understand, we create IT products [apps on your phone] so you can buy things in store even if you dont have any cash on you — it is enough to have your phone in your pocket. So you can make payments conveniently with your smartphone. Contactless. Cashless.

[During these times of viruses and diseases and pandemics, demand for contactLESS payments increased drastically].

That app in your smartphone is called “e-wallet”. That is basically FinTech. That is what I do at my current job.
