Our Business

FISPAN is an Enterprise SaaS FinTech start-up that allows for banks to deploy embedded financial products and services to create a seamless banking connection for their corporate clients. Our product aims to provide instant scale and reach for banks who want to remove friction and add value by enabling their commercial banking clients to access banking services through their preferred operational software. Founded in 2016 by respected and renowned entrepreneur Lisa Shields, FISPAN is on a mission to create the best product in the FinTech industry, and fundamentally change the way that companies bank. Being the market leader in ERP-banking, we work with the world’s Tier 1 banks with assets exceeding up to $3T, including J.P. Morgan Chase. 


With our rapid growth and global expansion, we are looking for dynamic and passionate individuals to join our team and inclusive culture. FISPAN recognizes that the differences in each of us is what makes FISPAN a different kind of business. Being a Vancouver based start-up, our modern and scenic office is located in downtown’s historic Marine Building. Though, the interview process for this position will be entirely remote.


Our platform consists of 3 key components - cloud-based transactional platform, dedicated business-facing web apps and native integrations with corporates’ ERP/Accounting systems. Banks have been historically lagging on the innovation side and we’re here to change that. We are building the next-generation banking experience for businesses and corporates.

We are looking for an experienced engineer who loves tech, can take ownership of the projects, is able to design and implement solutions to implement complex challenges, wants to be proud of their work and is excited to be part of a team re-shaping the definition of corporate banking applications.
