Gilles BianRosa helped launch N26 Crypto and Savings product

Gilles BianRosa has been at the helm of N26’s product innovation efforts since 2021. His tenure has been marked by significant accomplishments, including building a robust Product and User Experience (UX) team comprising over 100 talented professionals.

This team collaborated closely with nearly 700 engineers and developers in N26’s technology division, spearheading the launch of critical products such as N26 Crypto and interest-bearing Savings accounts. They also introduced localized offerings like Bizum in Spain, iDEAL in the Netherlands, and local French IBANs, enhancing N26’s global presence.

Under BianRosa’s guidance, N26 made notable strides in improving the scalability of its platform. Automation, intelligent Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) solutions, and data-based fraud prevention models were implemented, fortifying the bank’s commitment to security and efficiency.

Beyond these achievements, Gilles BianRosa developed a comprehensive long-term product strategy and roadmap that will guide N26’s evolution over the coming years. His contributions have been instrumental in shaping N26’s product-led culture and setting the stage for future innovation.
