- Bipsync is a fast growing, venture-funded SaaS startup with a product thoughtfully designed to help financial organizations manage their research. Our customers are multi-billion-dollar financial institutions, based all over the world.
- As a Front-end Developer you’ll define and develop the core product features on a range of platforms, including web, desktop and mobile. Our full tech stack includes many modern technologies and learning opportunities, with the opportunity to work on greenfield projects atop the Bipsync platform.
- You will join our experienced product engineering team, working out of our modern and spacious Cardiff office in Stadium Plaza, a stone’s throw from Cardiff Central train station. We also have an office in New York with the potential for international travel.

Bipsync was founded in Silicon Valley in 2012 by experienced investors and software developers at Stanford University.
We develop a Research Platform, built on the industry-leading RMS (Research Management System) for professional investors, available on the web, mobile and desktop. The majority of our customers are multi-billion dollar asset managers who perform in-depth research on investment opportunities to get an edge in their investments. The RMS market is worth billions of dollars, but until recently had been served by old-fashioned, legacy software companies. Our modern, mobile-friendly, design-focused product quickly established a foothold and reputation, and now wins over most clients when we’re up against the competition. The opportunity is massive.
We’re a fast growing pre-IPO startup with solid investment, a proven product strategy and a lucrative target market. This brings a number of benefits, including a high level of autonomy, a flat and intimate team structure, and a lack of bureaucracy. The Bipsync team is small but experienced, driven by creative people who want to build extraordinary products for an underserved market.
