About Flybits

Flybits helps financial institutions scale digital value by mobilizing data as a strategic asset and creating multidimensional, enterprise-grade customer experiences that drive loyalty and business results. We do this by harnessing the power of customers’ individual contexts to establish consent-based, participatory relationships with their financial institutions.

Flybits has a very unique culture one based on collaboration, respect, humility, courage, and figuring things out. It’s what allows us to move forward and compete in the industry. Each person that works here is thinking about the future and about how things can be done better.
