This is Us

A team of more than one thousand people sharing an idea: doing our bit in helping our clients create a better future for themselves, providing them with the tools they need to get where they want to go.

We are a fully online bank and were born out of that idea and 20 years on, transparency, simplicity and technology continue to be the ingredients for being more than just a bank. We are proud to be one of the very first banks to work with agile methodologies.

And although we are based in Spain, we are lucky to have the opportunity to work with international teams across 44 countries, composed of women and men as equal as they are diverse. Here you are free to be who you want to be, love whomever you choose, and even go for pineapple as your pizza topping.

As an important part of ING strategy, the international project “Maggie” is multi-cultural and cross-business, and is developing a borderless, scalable, retail platform uniting Spain, France, Italy and Czech Republic.

Making things happen, helping others be successful, always being one step ahead—that’s our DNA. If you look at yourself in the mirror… we are looking forward to meeting you!
