Hot on the heels of their latest customer win in the UK with leading insurance provider Hiscox, Backbase has announced their plans to further expand their operations in the United Kingdom.

Backbase, the Customer Experience Platform specialist, has revealed that they will begin an aggressive hiring campaign fo find the right candidates for their growing operations in the UK.

Backbase’s London office is located in the heart of the city’s historical financial district and their UK expansion will create at least a dozen new positions for the vendor to fill.

“We’re very pleased to be able to focus on this exciting market. London, and the UK, present a vast amount of potential for growth,” said Jouk Pleiter, Backbase’s CEO. “We have seen a dramatic upswing in the need for financial institutions and enterprises to meet the needs of their customers’ online and provide outstanding digital and mobile experiences.
