About Us

We’re building the world’s first global digital bank

At N26, we understand that sometimes it feels like your money’s in charge of you, not the other way around. That’s why we’re building a 100% digital bank that’s designed to be simple and transparent, helping you take back control. Centered around you, it’s an app that feels good to use—integrating the most innovative technology to make life easier, and enabling you to live and bank your way.

Technology streamlines your life. It’s given us the power to offer our customers a simple and faster banking experience with features such as instant notifications when you make a payment from your account to help you have better control and a stronger sense of security over your money. We believe that managing your finances doesn’t need to be complex. This is modern banking, created for our century.

Banking in your pocket, wherever you are. We all know how frustrating it is when you lose your card - with N26 you can simply lock, or re-order your card via one simple tap in the app, ignoring those long telephone banking wait times. If you need customer support you can get help using our live in-app chat from 07:00 to 23:00, 7 days a week, or chatbot (available 24/7). And even better, there’s no paperwork, no hidden fees and full transparency.

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

Since 2013, 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.
