In general, when people talk about getting into “fintech” what function are they talking about? Sales? I work in finance and have always heard hype around “fintech” but obviously people in finance aren’t talking about engineering roles when they refer to fintech, so what are they talking about and what is the hype?

Fintech is a sub industry, not a role. It's finance technology companies - companies that technologically disintermediate or provide technology that enhances the financial sector.
Any role that exists at other companies likely exists at Fintech companies, from development to sales, product management to marketing.

Fintech is generally referring to financial services companies who are providing innovative and disruptive technology providing products and services that take away market share from established banking and mainstream monopolies.

Fintechs come in many forms, and provide functions such as globalization of payment services, Blockchain, market place settlements, mass payments, API settlements, niche trading and investment companies, etc. I have worked for several mainstream banks such as , credit Suisse, baml, UBS in derivatives markets and have worked for 2 fintech start ups.

It is a different approach to business, a lot more entrepreneurial, innovative and fast paced

To answer your question, sales, operations, compliance, risk, technology, product are all roles in fintech and not just engineering

For clarity, I’m not saying engineering roles at fintech companies aren’t hype, I’m just saying obviously people talking about breaking into fintech from finance must be referencing more applicable roles

Is he just “checking” or is it a sign that he’s not into me?
