Backbase is a privately funded fintech company with its global headquarters in Amsterdam and regional offices throughout the world – from New York to Singapore and everywhere in between.

It all started in 2003 with just two people: our founder, Jouk Pleiter, and a partner who had a shared vision to “make the internet more beautiful.”

Fast-forward 20 years and we’re the backbone of hundreds of banks around the world and part of the day-to-day banking experience of over 50 million people.

Today, Backbase has a team of almost 2,000 people spread across 22 countries and 14 offices, all united by a single mission – to help banks re-architect around the customer.

Our mission

We believe that better banking can make for a better world. And that banking done right can revolutionize how people manage their money — and their lives.

More than quick fixes, we want to find breakthrough solutions. Because we believe that banking should be helpful, not a hassle. And that a new way of banking is the only way to go.

So, whether it’s bringing state-of-the-art innovation to our products, or bringing our clients and company together in complete collaboration — we’re here to break barriers, in everything we do.
