A bank with a global vision

Our founders Max and Valentin started N26 in 2013 to set new standards in an industry that’s remained institutional and dysfunctional for many. Their vision was to transform the way you manage your money with the latest technology and the best minds from around the globe, in order to change banking for the better.

Since, we’ve grown to a team of over 1,500 people across 80 nationalities, with offices in Berlin, Barcelona, Vienna, New York and São Paolo.
