I have an interview tomorrow to work at a fintech startup. I'm slightly worried as I'm not sure what it'll be like working While they use functional programming which I enjoy, I'm concerned about how much pressure I'll be under.

What is it like working at a fintech company? Is the salary at a fintech company typically higher than other tech jobs? It'll be higher than gamedev, but just wanted to learn about whether the pressure will be worth it eventually etc.

I was hoping someone would comment on this, as I’m curious about the same thing. Maybe it would help to mention the company. What Fintech company are you interviewing with. And if you had your interview already, how’d it go?

I'm sorry, I'm new to the app and had no idea I wouldn't get notifications from responses.

I had the interview today, and it was with Kroo bank. Its a full stack job featuring clojure as well as JS and react. Can't say I'm thrilled its not purely software engineering tbh, but maybe the clojure experience is worth it?

I've been in fintech for current and past two companies nearly 10 years. Services include SaaS, Financial solutions, claims adjudication, accounting, membership billing, and analysis. The pressure level was different at each company - more so when dealing with round-the-clock production service issues.
When I compare salary and benefits to some of the large tech companies, it appears to be lower. That's been my experience

Thread: I’ve been talking to this company for months and the recruiter has been in and out with communication. A few weeks ago, he reached out, apologized for the delay and explained they needed to figure out role priorities but that they’re moving forward, I’m a top candidate, & they wanted to wrap up interviews and extend an offer the following week. He never reached out to set up interviews and hasn’t replied to any of my calls or emails.
