COMPANY SUMMARY

Twenty-five years ago we launched Kingland with a vision to reinvent the way financial services firms manage risk, compliance, and data.

 

Founded in 1992, Kingland Systems is an innovative platform-driven solutions provider.  Our solutions provide the largest banks, public accounting firms, and insurance companies in the world with the tools and data to manage risk, comply with regulations, and improve their operations.  Our clients support the very foundations of the global financial system, helping to ensure fairness, honesty, and transparency on a global stage that generates, monitors, and audits trillions of dollars of financial transactions — leading to a better and safer world.

 

Kingland is unique. While we are based in Iowa, our customers are not. We are an Iowa company with a significant global reach. We provide our employees with the opportunity to "live locally and work globally", combining the Iowa quality of life that we all love, with exciting opportunities to travel the world and work on large projects for large clients.

 

Kingland is growing. We’re looking for individuals who like to tackle big challenges, want to work on mission-critical solutions, as well as desire to make a difference in the world — and be rewarded for their effort. Explore all the ways that quality of work meets quality of life at Kingland —and launch yourself on an exciting new adventure.
