About us

Fidesmo, one of the hottest young technology companies in Sweden, makes it possible to digitize and connect payment cards and other contactless services to smart wearables, and to fill these wearables with new digital services. Affärsvärlden and NyTeknik put Fidesmo on the 33-list, where Sweden’s hottest young technology companies are listed. It confirms that many see digitization of payments as an opportunity and that we enable companies to reach that market.
In addition to payment solutions, we also offer ticket handling for public transport, office/hotel keys, and security keys in our ecosystem of services.

Fidesmo was founded in 2013 and is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden.

Mattias Eld

CEO, Co-founder

A company is a loosely coupled system composed of the people working in it. Everyone knows that loose coupling is a great thing, but few realise how much work is required to keep a loosely coupled system in working order. Mattias’ main responsibility within Fidesmo is exactly this. He keeps the company in working order by making sure that everyone has everything they need to do a great job.

Angel Anton

Martin Paljak

System Architect

Sergey Khrushak

Software Architect

Sergey has a broad experience developing scalable and highly available systems. Passionate about Scala and functional programming principles but always ready to try new languages and technologies. Likes clean and simple code and is always fighting for it. Software automation enthusiast.

Luis Rodero, Ph.D

Scala Developer

Luis has worked both in academic institutions (French INRIA, Technical University of Madrid) and private companies (Ericsson, Telefónica R&D, Stratio, Qvantel). While his research activities were focused on applied distributed systems (P2P, Grid…), today he is passionate about software development with a focus on Java and Scala, and he is eager to learn and try new paradigms and technologies.

Javier Santos

Scala Developer

Javier is passionate about functional and reactive programming. He’s been fortunate enough to be working with his favourite programming language, Scala, since 2011 for multiple companies. With previous experience from domain-based projects in marketing, insurance, telecom, banking, utilities infrastructure and more he has a deep understanding of complex problems and projects.

Pablo Cabido

Scala Developer

Pablo dove into functional programming just out of curiosity for this “strange mathematical coding”, but now Scala is his way of life and he does not regret it. However, he still has some love for other languages, specially for Java (version 8 of course) and Python (version 3 of course). So do not be surprised if you see him creating some non-functional applications for his newly acquired main hobby: to participate in hackathons.
