Richard James, Head of Digital Technology and Engineering, Nationwide

“We had a problem.”

“When Nationwide first started working with SLATE in late 2015, the first project was to improve our existing mobile banking app.”

“SLATE smashed it out of the park.”

“The app was taking up to 16 seconds to load, but Slate got that time down to under a second.”

“It’s the SLATE team.”

“Their current structure is lean and works efficiently. There are five lead engineers supporting multiple mixed-teams across five separate hubs of thedigital business.”

Slate and Nationwide

Slate started working with Nationwide in late 2015.

Following the success of an initial mobile-banking project, the team based at Nationwide has grown to include Technical Architects, UI Developers, Java Script Engineers, Full Stack Developers and React Engineers.

Each week they spend their time working with the internal team as well as subcontractors to accelerate digital change for the organisation
