Summary

Who we are

FASTA are world leaders in autonomous online end-to-end using our own cloud lending platform. (See www.fasta.co.za).

We are engineers - We Create platforms.

Our own Front End Engine Framework allows us to craft effortless application processes for our customers. These work in concert with Our Backend Process Engines which provide highly configurable business process workflows that are coded and parameterized activities; all orchestrated though our Rules Engines to provide maximum configuration options.

Our End-to-End solution includes our Configuration Portal and the Customer Agent Portal which integrates with Call Centre switchboards.

So whether you like working on front end frameworks, backend apis, 3rd party integrations, process flows, platform architecture, risk algorithms, machine learning, deployment automation, test engineering or front end dashboards with systems and business metrics integrations. Or whether you just plain love learning and coding - there is something here to get your teeth into.

The Disruptive Result

Our FASTA implementation delivers a fully autonomous experience to the end consumer, while simultaneously delivering a massively efficient business process.

Cloud and Scale

Our architecture and platform is highly configurable, utilising the AWS cloud stack intensively.

Net Result

Our FASTA lending platform is completely automated and autonomous. A consumer can land on our Homepage and have the money paid into their account in 3 minutes (or less). No Humans involved. Our tech. Our innovations. Our disruptive thinking.

Tools

We are a TypeScript shop that employs JavaScript, Node.js and AngularJS. Our production database is MongoDB with a real-time synchronization to a PostgreSQL RDS instance. C# is used for some internal development tools.

We have an extremely resilient processing stack utilising AWS SQS, SNS, SES, CloudFront and SWF in conjunction with a configurable, robust, home-grown workflow engine.

We have invented and built and continue to innovate our platform which allows FASTA to rapidly deploy new features and innovations.
