Pismo, one of the world’s fastest-growing banking and payments Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) firms, announces Ross Larter as its new Engineering Director. Based in Bristol, UK, Larter will be responsible for structuring the technical team, expanding the company’s solutions, and supporting processes related to Pismo’s globalisation strategy.

Larter brings more than two decades of experience in product development and scaling organisations. Before joining Pismo, Larter spent more than six years as Engineering Director of Just Eat - the leading international online food delivery marketplace - and grew the technical staff tenfold, helping it support operations in 25 countries. 

“Joining Pismo, a company that provides a cloud-native and innovation-driven platform, is very exciting for a technical professional like me,” says Ross. “It makes it possible to develop unique and reliable solutions using state-of-the-art tools and methodologies that will impact the businesses of anyone offering financial services. By bringing agility and urgency to large-scale platforms, Pismo will thrive on its globalisation strategy.”

Since its Series B funding round led by Amazon, SoftBank and Accel, which raised $108 million in October 2021, Pismo has grown exponentially. The company has expanded its operations globally and announced offices in Europe, the US, and Singapore. It also established a partnership with OneConnect, a leading technology-as-a-service (TaaS) provider and an associate of Ping An Group, to expand its operations in South-East Asia. 

Vishal Dalal, Pismo CEO (North America, EMEA and APAC), says: “As a flat, lean and engineering-led firm, we are very happy to welcome Ross Larter to our team. His expertise will speed up our global efforts to support our global business strategy, bringing even more agility to our delivery.”

Pismo has deep experience developing and implementing banking SaaS solutions for financial institutions. Its clients include digital banks such as Banco Itau, Latin America’s largest bank, BTG Pactual, the largest investment bank in Latin America, and German-headquartered digital bank N26.
