Barclaycard, London

After 5 years at PayPal, most recently serving as Chief Architect for PayPal Credit, I decided to move to London, having accepted the role of CTO with Barclaycard.

You might wonder why a techie with startup background would leave Silicon Valley to work at Britain's oldest bank.

The reason is simple: financial industry as a whole and consumer financial services in particular are undergoing a transformation, some might say a seismic shift, which is significantly technology-driven.

A wave of change disrupting the status quo presents a great opportunity for innovation.

I'm tremendously excited to join Barclaycard technology team.
