Chris Wood

Enterprise API Architect at Natwest Group | Co-author of API Strategy for Open Banking: Insights and Case Studies

I am an experienced technologist specialising in APIs and a subject matter expert on Open Banking.

I've worked in payments since 2005, when I first joined VISA Europe as a contractor. Since then I've worked in a variety of Fintech, innovation and digital roles. Along the way I've picked up expert knowledge on APIs, including API design and developer experience, and security protocols like OpenID Connect and FIDO2/Webauthn. If job titles are interesting in that time I've been a Technical Architect, Enterprise Architect, Product Manager and Contributing Writer.
