The Team

At Fidelity Labs, we don't accept the status quo. We're debating, experimenting, researching, teaching, and collaborating on new ideas to help people live better financial lives. We have dedicated cross-functional teams that operate like startups but have the backing and resources of Fidelity to ensure that we are able to focus on the things that matter. Using a combination of good old-fashioned ingenuity, and innovation methodologies such as Design Thinking and Lean Startup, our startups take a customer-centric approach to problem solving, with a focus on rapid experimentation, and the permission to fail.

Our software engineers play a key role on our startups, making the ideas we research and refine through user testing come to life by building prototypes and iteratively evolving them into scalable products. Our teams are empowered to move quickly and operate independently, so our engineers are involved in every step of the process from design through deployment. We believe strongly that it is our responsibility to continuously improve both as engineers and as a team every iteration so we write automated tests as part of our development workflow, practice pair programming, perform peer code reviews and grow our knowledge through training and courses. We use modern technologies and are always open to improving our tools and our process.

The Skills You Bring
