Front-end Engineer

FundApps is a startup that helps investment managers stay in sync with worldwide regulations.

Rapptr, our main product, isnt some shiny but vacant consumer app. Theres real complexity both in terms of volumes of data that we deal with, and how we visualise the results of hundreds of rules running across thousands of portfolios - in a way thats simple, understandable and easy to manage.
