See Kat talk about her role at N26

We are The Mobile Bank.
Our vision is to build a bank the world loves to use.
Technology and design empower everything we do.

N26 is Europe’s first Mobile Bank with a full European banking license. We redesigned the banking experience to be simple, fast and contemporary. Founded in 2013 by Valentin Stalf and Maximilian Tayenthal, N26 has more than 430 employees and more than 1 million customers in 17 countries. N26 has raised more than $215 million from renowned investors including Allianz X, Tencent Holdings Limited, Li Ka-Shing’s Horizons Ventures, Peter Thiel’s Valar Ventures, members of the Zalando management board and Earlybird Venture Capital.

N26 is pioneering the field of bringing together the banking industry and modern software development. As one of the first banks completely hosted in the cloud - our security, resilience and productivity standards require a motivated and well balanced SRE team.

We are using a modern technology stack to match our principles when it comes to providing the framework for our development team, the company and our customers.

The DevOps culture is part of our values and we continuously try to improve our approach to modern system architecture and administration in a fully automated cloud infrastructure. Increasing the productivity of our development teams makes us proud. Leading blameless postmortems helps us to improve N26 and our cutting edge monitoring stack enables us to proactively identify potential outages.

Bound by regulations written for traditional banks we are eager to impress auditors by showing them our infrastructure as code approach. Most of them have never seen a modern setup with hundreds of live deployments per week and automatic software supply chain checks.

This job is for people who think bigger and never stop learning and improving. Engineers with an open mind and an interest in providing a bleeding-edge infrastructure.

You will work closely with our security teams who are specialized in defense and penetration testing. Synergies between our core teams are wanted and supported on all levels. You see yourself as a service provider!
