Walk us through your career path in ING (from your first role to the current one)
I stopped counting the years. :-) I started with a part-time job at ING Asigurari, in the HelpDesk team. Later I moved to 2nd line support, where I had the opportunity to advance to take a new role: Team Lead.
The next step was the IT Account Manager position in a project that involved the transition to Agile. That was also the moment when I made the change from ING Bank to ING Tech, together with the Core Banking Team, and started building new teams for other countries.
How is Life @ ING? (especially from a learning experience point of view)
Every project I was involved in, during my time in ING, has been a valuable experience. A recent project that I was really excited about was the Core Banking upgrade for France.
How would you explain your role as a Team Leader in ING Tech to a 7-year-old?
I take care of my colleagues and always guide them in solving new tests and challenges.
If you were to recommend ING to a friend, what would you say about the organization?
I like the fact that we are transparent and dynamic. Working in a global environment with colleagues from Europe, America, Canada is an amazing opportunity and a continuous learning process.
The informal atmosphere keeps us united and makes it possible to appreciate each other’s work on a daily basis.
If you were to save the world with an app…
An application that can show you how to be more caring with the people around you and how to contribute to society.
Let’s say you wrote your first SF book. What would you call it?
2050 – The end.
