Meet our Diamond Sponsor
BlueVine is a high-growth fintech company empowering small businesses with innovative banking. By combining industry-leading technology and security with our team's expertise and care, we've helped 200,000+ businesses, funding more than $9 billion since 2013.
Small businesses deserve accessible and modern financial services, and traditional banks have underserved them for too long. We're hiring problem solvers and collaborators to join our meaningful mission.
Headquartered in Redwood City, CA, and with a key R&D presence in Tel Aviv, Israel, we've raised $242.5 million in equity from top investors including Citi Ventures, Menlo Ventures, and Silicon Valley Bank Capital.
The endless technical opportunities
Building a banking platform is no small task. We regularly deliver innovative features to stand out in a competitive market while simultaneously ensuring our products and services' stability, security, and accuracy. After all, we're dealing with money that people need to keep their business running.
To keep up with these requirements, we practice high coding standards across the technology organization and embrace cutting-edge technologies to make real-time decisions based on vast amounts of data. One of the most exciting challenges we face is figuring out how to scale processes and systems during our high-growth stage. 🚀
Our tech stack
BlueVine is primarily a Python shop. We use Python and Django on the server side and for our data pipelines, data science, and machine learning (ML). We also have multiple data stores, among them Postgresql, Redis, Graph DBs, and our frontend is based on Vue.js. Our recent projects include using our technology and engineering expertise to help process billions in Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans. We chose Amazon Textract, a fully managed ML service that automatically extracts text and data from documents, to help automate the loan application process.
In just a few days, we were up and running, analyzing tens of thousands of pages with high accuracy. In just 4 months, we were able to serve more than 155,000 U.S. small businesses with over $4.5 billion in loans. We delivered services to those who needed it most, with 68% of loans going to customers with fewer than 10 employees and 90% of loans under $60,000.
BlueVine + Pycon
We have deep roots in the Python community, and this will be our 5th time attending Pycon! We’re proud to be a 2021 Diamond Sponsor and are excited for our Data Science Manager Nathalie Hauser and Core Engineering Manager Noam Elfanbaum representing BlueVine this year.
Nathalie will cover a machine learning interpretation framework that allows for the models' users to understand the feature’s direction of influence and impact. As models grow in complexity, interpretability plays an increasingly important role in their comprehension.
And Noam will dive into the challenges and gains of transitioning from a single server running Python scripts with Cron to a full-blown Airflow set up.
