CTO // N26

February 21, 2017
N26 is the most advanced bank account in Europe and the first that you can fully manage on your smartphone. We are supported by some of the best venture capital investors in the world, such as Valar Ventures, Earlybird Ventures, Redalpine Venture Partners and Axel Springer Plug and Play. Leading media already count ourselves among the “hottest FinTechs” worldwide. We have just started to redefine banking with a focus on being more transparent and easy, and we now also have our own banking license. On our mission to build the first pan-European bank, we need you!

We at N26 proudly consider ourselves a tech company. Being the first European bank built on a cloud-based core-banking system is only one of many steps to challenge the way banks are run nowadays. Backed by the investors who supported game changing billion-dollar companies like Facebook, Spotify or Slack, we are thrilled to realize the boldest ideas and set new standards in an industry which is ripe for disruption. Therefore, we need you as our well-regarded and experienced CTO with a stellar, proven track record in building and leading agile tech teams. Not only will you enhance the groundbreaking N26 user experience, but you’ll help change the way banks are operating around the world.

We believe that tech will shape the future of banking. Join and shape it together with us.
