NerdWallet - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

We have a team of several engineers with varying degrees of experience in both web and mobile technologies.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

The app is built using React Native, so we had a learning curve with everything when we first started because it was new technology for everyone on the team. We’re really happy with that decision now though, as it allows us to build features and iterate on them very quickly!

At 'NerdWallet', all of our work is guided by our core values. These values provide a shared framework across the company for collaboration and growth as we strive to deliver on our mission to clarify all of life's financial decisions.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

'Apple News' - it’s the perfect representation of Apple’s design system and gives us a great paradigm with which to model our own content experiences after.

How long have you been working on this app?

Our app originally launched in October of 2017, so just over 1 year.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

For many Americans making a personal finance decision can be overwhelming and confusing. Consumers often turn to friends and family for advice, that don't have the best answer many times, or to financial advisors and banks that may not have their best interests in mind. 'NerdWallet' is on a mission to provide clarity for all of life’s financial decisions. The 'NerdWallet' app provides consumers with personalized, unbiased and actionable insights so they can make smart money moves. From finding the best credit card to buying a house to investing their next dollar, and more, 'NerdWallet' is there to help consumers make financial decisions with confidence. Our app helps people understand the holistic picture of their finances and gives them ways to improve their situation through actionable insights and recommendations. The data-driven membership experience helps them stay on top of their finances, and save them time and money, giving them the freedom to do more.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

Unlike most apps on the market, we go beyond just reading financial statements. We’re investing in building deep, lasting relationships with our users to help them with financial decisions. We want consumers to be able to get more for their money, so in addition to helping consumer track and manage their finances and credit score, we provide personalized recommendations, guidance and insights to help users improve their finances over time.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

We regularly release new updates for our users and we’re focused on making that experience best-in-class. You’ll have to wait and see. ?
