About Jeannette Kescenovitz

I am currently a senior leader in the world’s third largest fintech company, leading a global team of solution managers and software engineers focused on Banking as a Service (BaaS). We are building OpenAPIs on Finastra’s FusionFabric.Cloud platform that will allow for orchestration of best-in-class financial service solutions that will connect fintechs and service providers to financial institutions.

My passion is solving business problems and advancing product solutions using a customer first mindset and innovative technology. My goal has always been to provide engineering teams the opportunity to explore innovative technology, learn from the best in the business and thrive with a collaborative team of engineers and business talent.

In my previous role with Finastra, I lead an organization comprised of 130 Development, QA, and Scrum resources across 3 countries. My teams were responsible for the entire software development life cycle, delivering value for multiple products lines with revenues in excess of $100M.

Career highlights:
• Cloud Expertise– I led a team of Microsoft and Finastra cloud architects and dev-ops resources responsible for transforming Fusion MortgagebotLOS to a fully load-balanced multi-tenant platform hosted in Microsoft Azure. In just 6 months the project team completed the entire architecture, design, transition and migration to Microsoft Azure. This web-based loan origination system closes 350,000 loans annually and has approximately 25 million requests per day. I had the distinct pleasure of presenting this project with Microsoft peers at the Microsoft Build conference in 2018.
In 2019 I led the same team through a similar transformation for the Fusion MortgagebotPOS multi-tenant point of sale system. This product is responsible for collecting $150B in consumer mortgage applications annually. The platform leverages services such as Azure Redis Cache, Azure SQL cloud database service, Azure App Service and Azure Key Vault.

• Leadership in Software Development- I have been working with SaaS based enterprise software for the past 20 years, with 16 years in the Financial Services industry. I have lead development teams through technology shifts and innovation, processes improvements and corporate transformations. I spent a great deal of time with teams working on transformations of legacy technology to take advantage of the latest trends in development methodologies, technology and hosting strategies.
