Abstract

FinTech remains a daunting ecosystem for new entrants but increasing numbers of tech start-ups are showing how it's done. Paybase's journey to market-ready end-to-end payments service provider solution for marketplaces and gig-sharing economies, involved building a scalable payments platform while balancing innovation with reliability and some strict constraints in compliance and risk. Ana will cover the technical and security challenges they faced and the lessons they learned along the way as they built Paybase's cloud-native microservices infrastructure (GCP, Kubernetes) and integrated with old-world, traditional systems.
