An Insider's view of N26

What are some social events your company does?

We've had quite a few social events so far, from lunches and happy hours on rooftops to Escape the Room challenges here in our NYC office. In a particularly adventurous outing, the team went to Sleep No More at the McKittrick Hotel. We are a pretty adventurous bunch so we're always coming up with interesting ideas for places to go!

Amaan

Associate Product Manager

What does your typical day look like?

In the mornings, our Berlin and NYC offices are available in both of our timezones. We usually catch up and hold meetings including daily stand-ups. The team typically grabs lunch together around noon. In the latter part of the day, it's usually distraction-free work time; I feel more productive later in the day, so this is great!

Foti

Senior Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

Each employee receives a personal development budget, which we can use for professional development in our fields or in another N26 work field. Whether it’s a marketing conference in LA or a local class on coding, it’s a perk N26 gives us that can help us grow and become a stronger, more productive employee.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

I think people are inherently creative, but some have been told "no" too many times, where they evolve to be pragmatists. (Not necessarily a bad thing) You encourage the recovery of creativity by not saying no, by listening even to the the most outlandish ideas and taking the time to walk through those ideas with the person, and challenging yours.
