curve_case_03 Project description

Curve is a one-of-a-kind, UK-based platform that consolidates credit cards within one app. Curve were looking for ways to enhance their speed and agility to deliver a more meaningful customer experience.

Following a £70M Series C, their team determined that bringing on a growth-minded development partner made perfect sense — and iTechArt’s proven experience marrying strategy, technology, and seamless processes made for an optimal fit. Within just two days, Curve hired four Go engineers, quickly adding three more PHP and Node specialists shortly after. The task at hand? Help the in-house paytech team streamline the core payment mechanisms.

Throughout the years of our partnership with Curve, we improved the platform's performance by leveraging orchestrator templates and setting up RPC protocol as well as completing the following scope of tasks:

  • Creating a set of internal libraries to enhance standardization of business processes and developer experience.
  • Extending the data model for message exchange between an application and the checkout service.
  • Deploying financial web services to AWS to build a reliable, secure, and highly scalable application.

The additional features we implemented allowed Curve to raise £9.4M in a record-breaking Crowdcube campaign, bringing the total investment to almost £132M. What’s more, the startup is predicted to hit unicorn status in the near future.

Additionally, our team has continued to fine-tune the solution as Curve expands internationally, moving into the US as well as deepening its European reach.
