Mobile Banking Product Development Scales Fintech Software Suite

MoneyLion's mobile banking app interface with debit card

The Opportunity Develop a Seamless Banking Solution for MoneyLion’s Comprehensive Financial Platform

MoneyLion empowers individuals to take control of their finances and achieve their goals through accessible and innovative financial technology. Their fintech platform helps users manage their money more effectively by providing access to credit monitoring, investment advice, and personal loans through its mobile app.

While the platform was becoming increasingly more successful, customers were required to link external bank accounts rather than banking directly with MoneyLion. Recognizing the potential to serve their customers better and enhance the platform’s value, MoneyLion identified an opportunity to launch a proprietary mobile banking solution. With this platform, MoneyLion aimed to provide a seamless and comprehensive financial experience that meets the needs of its users and simplifies their financial management.

Our Response MojoTech Builds a Mobile-first Banking Platform with Scalable Architecture and User-friendly Interface

Our collaboration with MoneyLion’s engineering and finance teams resulted in developing a new mobile-first bank that seamlessly integrated with their existing fintech suite. MojoTech was critical in building the software and databases for the new Demand Deposit Account (DDA) banking service. We developed the API endpoints that verified customer IDs, created bank accounts, issued debit cards, and more. Additionally, we created datasets that provided valuable insights to MoneyLion’s analytics team and stakeholders.

From a front-end perspective, we ensured the account creation experience was intuitive and user-friendly. We developed a simple interface that allowed customers to easily view their statements, check current balances, and initiate transfers. We also built a robust event-handler and notification system that sent push notifications to customers when there were updates to their account balances or other important events.

As the DDA banking platform continued to accrue users and more functionality, we helped scale it by migrating to the cloud from in-house data centers and adopting a microservices architecture. We implemented fault-tolerant caching layers to handle the high volume of events and transactions the platform was processing daily, ensuring that MoneyLion’s customers always had access to reliable and secure financial services.

The Outcome MojoTech’s Fintech Expertise Helps MoneyLion Achieve 5 Million Active Users and a $1 Billion Valuation

Our work with MoneyLion resulted in a superior banking experience for their customers, further enabling them to take control of their finances. Since launching the new mobile banking platform, MoneyLion has experienced extraordinary growth, with over 5 million active users utilizing the software we created. As an additional testament to the success of our collaboration, MoneyLion closed on $100 million in funding at a near $1 billion valuation in the wake of the launch.
