Working as a software engineer

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have a job offer as a Software Engineer from a company who call themselves as Robot Advisory Company or Wealth Management company. The company is a software firm, they have developed software solution that manages wealth. It is Business to Business model (B2B). One part of their software is “Intelligent Advisor” whose customers are mainly banks, insurance companies, e-commerce, telecommunication companies and other financial institutions. “Intelligent Advisor is a proprietary algorithm-ranking tool for relationship managers to improve customer experience and that empowers relationship managers with the ability to advise their clients more efficiently”.

My Question is, is it permissible to work for that company as they are giving service to banks. 


A: If majority of the business is halaal and you are not serving in the department that is related to the banks and insurances etc. then it is permissible.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
