3 years — Martyna — Product + Tech

What’s your role? I am a Senior Quality Assurance Engineer.

How long have you worked at N26? I have been working at N26 for more than 3 years now. When I joined, we were maybe 50 people in total and now we grew 10 times more!

What project are you most proud of? The project in which we integrated TransferWise into our app has a special place in my heart. That was my first project with close collaboration with a partner and one of the first projects I did in the newly formed cross-functional team. I think the team did an amazing job given the time constraints, I am using this feature in our app with pleasure.

1 year — Tim — Design

What’s your role? I started here as a Video Producer in the Marketing team, building the in-house video department from the ground up. Now I’m a Senior Motion Designer, which means I’m also involved in developing our animation style and how motion is treated in the product itself.

How long have you worked at N26? My first day was at the beginning of May 2017. The company had around 230 employees back then so I’ve seen N26 more than double and I’ve shuffled around different desks more than a few times.

What project are you most proud of? I’d say one of our more recent video productions makes me proudest. As much as I like the highly-polished 3D animation we created for our Metal card launch, the one that brings me most satisfaction is here in Berlin. It shows how important diversity is in our company and the fact that N26 let’s people be themselves at work — which isn’t often the case at a lot of companies.
