AUSTIN, TX / ACCESSWIRE / June 6, 2022 / Episode Six (E6) has been named as one of the 50 Best Places to Work in Financial Technology by American Banker.

E6 firmly believes that empowered and valued employees are the primary reason behind the company’s success.

In 2021, E6 tripled in size, ending the year with approximately 100 employees – with the same rate of growth continuing in 2022. This growth enables the company to further expand its global footprint. Today, nearly seven years after E6 was founded with a team of three in Austin, Texas, it operates globally across 25 countries. As the company continues to grow, its culture remains steadfast. In addition to E6’s commitment to excellence and an inclusive and supportive work environment, it focuses on cultivating and promoting professional development.


"Being named one of the Best Places to Work in Financial Technology is especially meaningful to me because it represents direct, positive employee feedback," said John Mitchell, CEO and Co-Founder of Episode Six. "Maintaining a culture that motivates and values our employees is a top priority for the company, as we recognize our employees as the company's greatest asset."


American Banker’s Best Places to Work in Financial Technology program was created in 2017 and is a project of 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. The 2022 list included 50 companies and was published by Arizent brands American Banker, National Mortgage News, PaymentsSource, Financial Planning and Digital Insurance.

“The fintech community continues to grow and provide job opportunities for data scientists, developers, managers and creative thinkers,” said Penny Crosman, executive editor, technology at American Banker. “Best Places to Work in Financial Technology offers a look at FinTechs that lead the pack in areas like human resources policies, perks and culture, which can help people understand which companies might be a fit for them.”

To be considered for participation, companies must provide technology products, services or solutions that enable the delivery of financial services. Companies must also have been in business for at least one full year and employ at least 15 people in the U.S.
