Ignitr brings high-velocity culture, software development methods & tools from the best of the start-up community to the corporate financial services world. We enable our clients to harness technology better, respond faster with more agility, and innovate with business driven software.
Ignitr consulting is a European software engineering consultancy based in London, UK. We specialise in bringing the latest software development disciplines from high-performing start-ups (Agile, Lean, Behaviour Driven Development, Kanban, exploratory software testing) in to the corporate environment, enabling large organisations to become more responsive, deliver more functionally appropriate, higher quality software, faster. In doing so, our clients are better able to meet the demands of fast changing and highly complex business environments.
In practice that means our clients derive greater business value from technology. Together with their IT teams they are able to respond faster to changing business needs, be more collaborative and focused on quality, flow and reduction of waste.
We exclusively work in the financial services sector and our client list includes a number of investment banks, VCs and high-growth financial start-ups.
What we do
From strategic transformation to on-the-ground execution, we offer solutions for trading, operations, settlement, payments, insurance & regulatory control. We deliver.
Five to nine, this is what makes us tick.
We believe that the activities of the financial services industry can be measured on its social as well as its financial value. Whilst we make no claim to be authoritative, we seek to focus our energies on projects that have a positive social utility and avoid those that don't. We are the founders of cake&hackers, a series of FinTech innovation unconferences aimed at reinvigorating the industry with increased integrity and accountability.
We understand the need for speed, agility and teamwork; the same principles that guide professional bike racing. And we love cycling. So we sponsor the London Nocturne City Criterium and are very proud to have been chosen as the official technology partners of the London Nocturne Series and the Revolution Series elite track cycling events. We are also sole technology partners with the 2013 Tour of Britain and sponsors of the 2014 Pearl Izumi Tour series.
We operate a highly supportive and inclusive culture where young talented people can learn a challenging technical profession. We operate a mentorship programme and leverage technology to ensure team collaboration by design. Outside the company, we make charitable donations to organisations such as Centerpoint, who provide an invaluable safety net to the most vulnerable young people in society and campaign to end youth homelessness.
