About Us

About Us
Year Founded
Global Locations
28Stone was founded in 2011 to deliver software that brings out the best in every client we serve.
We quickly recognized that on the one hand, onshore consultants will generally try to tell you what’s best for your business and even jump to recommending more than what you need (because they know best, right?). On the other hand, most offshore suppliers operate on the principle of “one size fits all.”

We believe that clients deserve better.

That’s why we decided to focus on understanding your business (what people used to call listening) before making any recommendations. It means we’re then able to leverage our “rightshore” approach to bring deep capital markets knowledge, unique technology expertise and a proven delivery methodology.
We partner with the world’s leading financial institutions to design and build robust financial applications that improve their business performance while reducing system risk, cost and time to market. At 28Stone, we are proud of our proven track record of delivering quality results and the trust our clients place in us with ongoing, repeat engagements.


28Stone consultants have a rare mix of client focus, technology expertise and a passion for building a corporate culture. We’re growing and we want to hear from you.

A constant search for awesome talent

28Stone seeks positive, open-minded and motivated individuals who are eager learn as well as share what they know. At 28Stone, we value our employees at the same level as our clients and strive to provide long and wide career paths for those willing to join the journey. Interested?
