MDT Named a Best Place to Work in Financial Technology for Fifth Consecutive Year

CUSO recognized for dynamic, fulfilling and inclusive work environment


FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., May 7th, 2024 – Member Driven Technologies (MDT), a CUSO that hosts the Symitar core processing system from Jack Henry™ to provide a private cloud alternative for core processing and IT needs, today announced its fifth consecutive recognition as one of the Best Places to Work in Financial Technology by Arizent and Best Companies Group.


This annual survey and awards program is designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in the financial technology industry. Companies recognized on this year’s list operate in and serve companies and consumers in a wide range of financial services including banking

and mortgages, insurance, payments and financial advisory. 


"Though the fintech industry has faced many headwinds in the past year, the sector is still a vital cog in financial services, bringing ease of use and convenience to consumers and businesses," said Penny Crosman, executive editor, technology at American Banker. "This year's list honors companies that continue to innovate and create jobs for technologists."


MDT's employees cite internal collaboration and an environment of inclusiveness as just a couple of the primary reasons the CUSO is a great place to work. The company has multiple committees for innovation, women in leadership, social justice and more. Leadership also has an open-door policy, welcoming ideas and feedback aimed at enhancing company operations and office camaraderie.


Last year marked MDT’s 20th anniversary, and the company celebrated impressive external growth; what started as an organization founded by seven credit unions has grown into a leading CUSO that serves 110+ credit unions across the country, representing nearly two million members. 


"Our employees are the reason we have a proven track record of success in providing credit unions across the country with leading technology and services. That is why we prioritize offering outstanding benefits, fostering a supportive culture, championing innovation, and providing flexible work arrangements,” said Larry Nichols, CEO and President of MDT. "We are honored by Arizent and Best Companies Group's continued recognition of MDT as a Best Place to Work in Fintech. This acknowledgment underscores our commitment to the personal and professional development of our nearly 150 exceptional team members."
