Different by design

In 2004, Q2 founder Hank Seale set out to build stronger and more diverse communities by strengthening their financial institutions.

Hank knew that technology had massive potential to help FIs transform their businesses, but the fragmented, piecemeal approach of early internet banking vendors was only creating more cost and complexity for FIs to manage. How could he and his small group of engineers design a future-proof solution that could help financial institutions compete and grow?

They imagined a platform—a single platform—integrating with all of an FI’s legacy technology.

This decision would mean institutions using Q2’s platform could have one admin console to manage the same experience on mobile, online, and voice banking—and whatever may come next. In 2005, this was a radical idea—but we started there, and since then, Q2 has been designing and delivering software that creates meaningful financial experiences and supports lasting customer relationships.

people

Today, one out of 10 digital banking customers in America is using Q2’s single platform to bank.

If that wasn’t enough, over 40% of the country's top 100 banks find the power, flexibility, and performance of the platform to be key to their digital strategy.

It’s amazing to see the power of a clear purpose, creativity, and a willingness to break down technical barriers.

We call it FinX.

We begin with the traditional must-haves of digital banking: feature functionality, operational excellence, and integrations. We add the next-generation of must-haves: data-driven insights, open technology, and a unique approach to problem solving called design thinking.

Data and Security

Understand account holders’ needs and anticipate their actions so that you can better connect with and protect them.

Open Technology

Meet market demands by quickly and easily deploying new products and features with agile API technology.

Design Thinking

Find solutions that address the heart of the problem—not its symptoms.

This FinX philosophy spans everything we do, from product development and platform architecture to how we hire, and more:

Product development

Our product philosophy is “Ask. Understand. Deliver.” We do the work, build the partnerships, and ask the questions. We also reinvest 20% of our annual revenue on R&D and have an industry-unique in-house usability testing facility that ensures we’re delivering the best experiences possible. Put simply, everything we do is in response to your needs and the needs of your customers.

Architecture

Before we came along, no one had conceived of a single-platform banking solution. There were different systems and management consoles for online, voice, and mobile, but Q2 brought everything together into a single core integration. The result is a more-secure, less-cluttered, and highly extensible back office—as well as exceptional, seamless experiences for you and your account holders.

Security

We’ve continually raised the bar on security with an intelligent, multi-layered, scalable, end-to-end suite of native solutions. From pioneering data analytics and machine learning to prevent fraud before it happens, to building a disaster-proof active-active hosting infrastructure and adopting groundbreaking blockchain data security, we never stop looking for ways to keep your account holders and your assets secure. And the threat landscape never stops evolving, so we never stop working.

Data

After breaking new ground with the use of analytics in our security solutions, our data scientists kept going—finding more ways to put your data to work. We developed an intelligent targeting and messaging platform that helps you better understand your account holders—delivering insights in real time to help you provide relevant services to the right account holders at the right times. If data is the new oil, we’re building the refineries to help you turn it into real value.

Innovation

Innovate faster with freedom and flexibility. Design and deploy digital banking experiences that provide unique value to your account holders, build brand loyalty, and create new revenue streams.

We’re stronger together

At every level, Q2 works to strengthen communities. Our teams invest resources, time, and passion into causes that matter. Q2 employees support dozens of wide-reaching organizations, such as Black Girls CodeCode2College, and YearUp, promoting the success of people of color in technology. Other deserving beneficiaries include Resource Center benefitting LGBTQ communities, JDRF, and Hire Heroes USA, a group assisting U.S. military veterans in finding new careers. As a global company, Q2’s charitable reach crosses borders, supporting organizations like International Relief Teams, which works to alleviate the suffering caused by poverty and disaster, and HelpAge India, dedicated to working with and for disadvantaged elderly. In 2020, Q2’s internship program adopted a community service component, underscoring our ever-growing commitment to the communities we call home.

Culture

Building something different and special takes people. We believe in finding and developing the best talent everywhere. Even our M&A strategy reflects a commitment to people: we don’t acquire businesses or products, we seek out amazing, like-minded people with game-changing ideas and deep expertise. And we believe our talent is an extension of yours: not every regional or community financial institution can acquire top development talent, which is why we make it a priority to do so in key talent hubs across the globe.
