Not a traditional bank

ING is evolving into a tech company with a banking licence.

Together with scientists, technology experts and our expertise in business we offer our customers an exceptional and very personal experience. The collaboration between leading scientists, technology experts and business specialists produces impressive results.

Cutting-edge technologies

Our team, ranging from young talented interns with a variety of backgrounds to top-level scientists with spectacular track records, is united in their shared fascination for cutting-edge technologies and how these technologies can be deployed within our products and solutions to keep adding values for our customers.
Besides that I do a lot of graphic design work for marketing purposes – such as posters promoting conferences that ING is attending as part of its recruitment activities – and I also develop brochures that visualise our work and our organisational structure.
