“During university, I studied business, finance and information management. Deutsche Bank allowed me to combine my two interests: trading and technology. They saw my potential and gave me this chance without having a computer science degree. I enjoy learning every day and I developed an application from scratch on my own. I quickly learned new technologies and managed the project and application success end-to-end. The app is now used by different teams and is making a real impact. Working on the bank’s technology through which EUR trillions flow and being in the heart of the global economy feels amazing. There is a lot that needs to be changed in this industry as banks redefine themselves as technology companies – you can be part of this transformation.”
