five°degrees is a Fintech, with 150+ employees based in Amsterdam, Lisbon, Reykjavik, and Novi Sad. Our mission is to bridge the gap between the old and the new world for core banking systems. We achieve this by offering a cloud-native core banking platform to banks and financial services.

Our core product is called °neo. We started working on it two years ago with design thinking at its core.
