“I am a graduated mathematician with focus on "Financial Engineering" and for 10 years part of the flatexDEGIRO family as "Product-Owner", responsible for the support of our B2B customers in projects and business concerns in the trading area.
What makes flatexDEGIRO special? The responsible and challenging work, the good working atmosphere, as well as the good feeling of supporting the economic success of the company. The offered work-life balance allows me to find time with my family and pursue my hobbies as a pilot and footballer.”

“I have been working as assistant to the CEO at flatexDEGIRO for several years and since then I have experienced the positive development of our company every day. It is highly interesting and exciting to be at the pulse of time.
Our working environment is sporty & ambitious, but it's worth it because we achieve great results and it motivates me to be part of this success story.”
Eide Emini, Assistance CEO
„Als Ur-Bankerin im Beruf und leidenschaftliche Handspinnerin zum Ausgleich sind Seriosität und kreativ-eigenwilliges Design die Gegensätze, die mich antreiben.
Die pragmatische Art, der ungewöhnliche Weg zur fertigen Lösung, meine persönliche Entwicklung und alles zusammen in unglaublicher Geschwindigkeit sind das, was mich an flatexDEGIRO bis heute und jeden Tag aufs Neue fasziniert.“
Ingrid Cuypers, Executive Director Group Finance & Administration
“My interest has always been in the analysis and synthesis of things and facts. Thus, I started my professional career as a chemist, but found out very quickly that I prefer data than elements—now I am successfully responsible for our Business Intelligence team at flatex and still responsible for the analysis and synthesis of things.
I am at flatexDEGIRO because everything else was too boring for me!”
Dirk Hagedorn, Director Business Intelligence
“After several years of professional experience in banking, I discovered my passion for the job as an executive assistant 12 years ago. It is very important to me to always be at my boss' side in all matters as a right hand, management function, controller and security center.
At flatexDEGIRO, I work in a highly motivated work environment with exciting and various topics. I am happy to be a part of this great team and success.”
Denice Watkins, Assistance Deputy-CEO & COO
“Since 2014 I have been part of the great IT Infrastructure team, being responsible for many projects as a systems engineer.
My statement about flatexDEGIRO: Work Life Balance is not only claimed—it is given: This allows me to play in my private life as a professional guitarist in a successful symphonic metal band and to perform on the biggest stages all over the world, including Wacken Open Air, Rock am Ring and Rock im Park.”
Tobias Lodes, Associate System Engineers Team
We have a simple principle: we want our teams to be as colorful and diverse as possible. After all, diversity always leads to the same result. The best. As a company, we therefore consistently counteract any kind of reservation. Every day we strive to become more open and let performance speak for itself. We cultivate a corporate culture in which everyone is valued with their individual abilities and facets.
When it comes to diversity, many people think of special issues. However, diversity has far more dimensions: Diversity also means diversity in age, origin, ethnicity, religion or skin color, cultural imprint, mental and physical abilities or sexual identity. Diversity can be visible, but it can also be expressed in intellectual differences. We are actively committed to more openness and diversity and always keep the personality of the employee as a central dimension in mind.
In areas in which we have not yet reached 100% of the high standards we set ourselves in terms of diversity, we meet structural challenges with active solutions. The results of our efforts can be seen in the involvement of female managers in leading positions: our operational finance, our securities settlement and our HR team have been led by female managers for many years.
flatexDEGIRO takes the issue of difference in gender pay seriously. We strive to ensure that gender plays no role in the compensation of employees. We regularly audit differences in gener pay, and where gaps are identified, take steps to narrow such gaps. The goal is to ultimately eliminate gaps in gender pay in the future for employees of similar qualification, experience, and responsibilities. For 2021, the global mean (average) raw pay for female employees was 84 cents for every Euro earned by their male counterparts. In the same year, the global median raw pay for females was 85 cents for every Euro received by their male counterparts.
Innovation springs from new thinking. That is why we attach great importance to supporting young talents in the course of their training or studies and working together on interesting projects. Since 2015, we have been cooperating with the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management and sponsoring the first dual FinTech bachelor's degree called "Digital Business". The aim is to provide practical training that reconciles the different requirements of IT and financial services. We also maintain close cooperation in the IT area with Krefeld University of Applied Sciences.
“I studied in Beijing and in Seoul—now I have the chance to take on new challenges and opportunities at flatexDEGIRO and to contribute my experience and knowledge.
In my private life I run a community club in Mannheim for Asians and people with interest in Asian culture. It fulfills me to bring people from different cultures together and to learn from each other.”
Viet Anh Nguyen, Manager Business Intelligence
“Originally, I am from Cameroon and came to Germany to study mathematics.
How did I end up with flatexDEGIRO? Through my interest and enthusiasm for financial topics and the development of tools in this area. The corporate philosophy, the diversity as well as the sustainable successful management of the company have more than met my expectations as an employee.”
Sonia Marthe Ngo Minka, Manager Business Intelligence
“For me, Human Resources is about keeping an eye on the people we are responsible for as HR and as a company. Employees must be trusted to understand what is best for them, how they work most efficiently. You have to let them realize it. Brain work can hardly be located or timed. Although the majority of people working in offices today are service workers, the daily work routine in many companies is still determined by the industrialization era—attendance requirements, time recording, rigid hierarchies, etc. I am very pleased that we were able to establish a working culture at flatexDEGIRO to which none of this applies. In addition to flat hierarchies, we especially promote flexible working methods in order to give our employees the opportunity to balance private life and work, and thus increase their quality of life and performance.”
Christiane Strubel, CHRO
“My career started with concrete mixing to bricklaying. Only afterwards I successfully completed my studies in applied computer science. I came to flatexDEGIRO in 2009 as a software developer and product manager. Today I am responsible for the Andernach office and for the technical processes around the transaction accounting platform as well as settlement processes of our IT.
What distinguishes flatexDEGIRO from others? The progressive corporate culture and a management that keeps the challenges high with exciting projects.”
Dominik Wurm, Executive Director Core
Development and training
Lifelong learning is a basic prerequisite for sustainable market leadership in financial technology. It is our aspiration to create an environment at flatexDEGIRO in which all employees can develop and give their best in the long term. With an average of well over 100+ continuing education offerings per year, we cover a broad range of topics – from group coaching, subject-related continuing education events to in-service studies.
Health and work-life balance
It is in line with our self-image to promote the health of our employees and to support the work-life balance.
A modern, ergonomically designed working environment is a matter of course at flatexDEGIRO.
Flexible working time models have been part of our standard offer for years. In addition to flexible working hours, the possibility of sabbaticals, partial retirement and partner months, we particularly encourage parents to return to work through various part-time models and – under certain conditions – the assumption of childcare costs.
Retaining employees in our dynamic and knowledge-based environment is a key factor in securing our long-term success. Open communication, flat hierarchies and wide-ranging opportunities to shape the company create attractive conditions for involving employees in our success story.
The above-average length of service of our employees – for a company as young and fast-growing as flatexDEGIRO – is clear evidence of the success of our corporate culture.
