Technology led banking NOT bank led technology - Dom Pym

Humans Aren't Robots

I was really excited to sit down with Dom Pym who is the Co-Founder of Up Bank and software development company Ferocia. I have heard Dom speak a few times and have been a fan of Up since it launched a few years ago. If you have not come across Up, it is at the forefront of changing the way we think about bank and banking. I fell in love with their customer-centric approach and attention to small detail. Things that I love in any product, especially ones as integral to everyday life as banking. Dom has had an interesting career covering many roles and I took this opportunity to dive int his mind and uncover some gems for all of you.

#12 Challenger banking in Australia with Dom Pym (Up Bank)

Banking on Air

In this episode, we interview Dom Pym, co-founder of Up Bank about the open banking landscape in Australia, the launch of their banking API and how their focus on being a contrarian technology company has helped them bring features to market in record speed to become Australia’s first next-gen digital bank. Here is just a small taste of how different Dom’s thinking is in the fintech product design industry and how they have managed to build something very unique: “We actually take a contrary view: How does it feel when you sign up for Up? Does it feel easy or does it feel hard? If you got 20 clicks or a hundred clicks, it doesn't matter. I can reduce the clicks from 20 to 10 or five or one by putting all the fields on one screen, but it's a horrible experience and it makes you feel awful. So we take the opposite approach, this contrary approach, where we have an atomic design method, where we only ever asked the customer for one thing on a screen.” Here is a rundown of the episode, if you want to jump ahead: 02:45 Partnering with Bendigo Bank to start Up 08:51 Open Banking in Australia 11:54 Over a 1000 people used Up API in first week 14:57 How they managed to launch Open Banking API so quickly by being a technology company first 24:20 Integrating with Transferwise to prevent complexity with SWIFT 25:51 What they would have done differently 27:49 Will Up turn into a superapp? 36:51 What’s the secret sauce?
