About Holvi

  • We are a full-stack bank replacement for business customers – a banking service built from the ground up
  • We run on AWS with Python (Django) and PostgreSQL
  • We are independently regulated – a Payment Institution with full EU authorisation – and run with our code built fully in-house, by our team
  • We take care of all the layers of the stack – interface, infrastructure, operations and marketing
  • We're not a skin or an app on top of an existing bank

We're all here to make Holvi a success. We enjoy working with people who are enthusiastic about learning, take initiative and ownership and contribute positively to our company culture. We are looking forward to welcoming a new core member to the team to help us scale Holvi to the next level.

Holvi has been voted as the hottest startup in Finland by Wired Magazine and stated as the next big thing to come out of Finland after Nokia by Forbes. In March 2016 we joined the BBVA global family of innovative fintech companies. We will continue to develop Holvi independently in Finland with the support of BBVA. Read the full story here.
