The financial services industry is seeing a shift towards cloud services, with strong demand from small to mid-size firms looking to keep pace with newer cloud-centric rivals. To support this transformation, Bricknode onboards five new resources to its software development team.

The industry shift to the cloud will help financial companies innovate faster and meet changing market requirements. To support the move, Bricknode has welcomed five new faces to its software development team, led by Joakim Platbarzdis, who joins as Head of Engineering and Product.

“Engineering talent is always a scarce resource, and we are extremely happy to have attracted these new team members to Bricknode. It is testimony that we are an attractive employer,” says Stefan Willebrand, Bricknode Founder & CEO.

Platbarzdis will be responsible for Bricknode’s product development strategy and its 19-strong product and engineering team. He brings a wealth of experience working with cloud services having spent more than 11 years in senior product and engineering positions at Episerver, in addition to other roles.

“I am very much looking forward to boosting Bricknode’s engineering and development so we can continue delivering innovation for our customers. A good culture is essential in achieving amazing results and that is what we can do at Bricknode,” says Joakim Platbarzdis, newly appointed Head of Engineering and Product.

Joining Platbarzdis’s team are Patrick Nel, Lead Designer, and senior software engineers Ben McKernan, Henrik Lindström and Mikael Bergemalm. The new team members bring a diverse set of strengths and experience in SaaS and fintech from companies including Klarna, Gears of Leo, Optimizely and Episerver.
