FlexxPay to Launch Innovation Centre in Lebanon
FlexxPay, a fintech company with offices in Europe and the GCC, focusing on employee benefit solutions, is launching an innovation centre in Beirut, Lebanon, to support its strategic growth aspirations across the region. The centre will be launched in February 2020 and will complement the company’s existing outsourced software development house in Serbia to focus on technological innovation in core areas such as Platform Development, Business Intelligence, Bots and Mobile Applications.
“Setting up the innovation center in Lebanon is a strong empowerment to our business in addition to our existing software development partner in Serbia," said Charbel Nasr, Chief Technology Officer and Co-founder of FlexxPay. “Our strategy is to become the leading technology firm providing employee benefits solutions to corporates in the region and beyond. For that we are setting strong foundations in every aspect of our business. Access to the right talents, which are plentiful in Lebanon, will strengthen our capabilities to develop our technology stack and ensure we have the capacity to accelerate our product roadmap while maintaining a secure and robust application,” Nasr added.
FlexxPay plans to partner with SE Factory, a leading talent accelerator program in Beirut, to attract and onboard the best software development talent in the market. The company is currently hiring full stack developers with different levels of expertise to drive its Microservices based Web/Native Mobile applications, Artificial Intelligence and Business Intelligence platforms.
“We are looking forward to collaborating with FlexxPay being one of the leading fintech companies in the region,” said Fadi Bizri, Co-Founder of SE Factory. “We work with several global high-tech firms and they are always impressed with how qualified and cost-effective Lebanese technology talent is. We are excited to help FlexxPay grow their team and reach new heights,” Bizri added.
