FAQs

The hub as it is today was established in 2015, but the seed was planted in 2010 when a small team of IT experts was put together in Romania. Their mission was to develop banking solutions mainly for ING Belgium and Luxemburg. In 2014 the team grew with an additional Center of Excellence offering Core Banking solutions for various ING countries. In 2015 the Center of Excellence becomes ING Software Development Center, a technology hub developing cutting-edge banking solutions across ING.

Over 10 nationalities and as many languages are spoken at the hub. Our international community gathers tech specialist from Holland, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Morocco, Poland, Portugal, the US and the Czech Republic, making up 12% of the total number of employees.

The hub's community gathers nearly 300 IT top engineers. Over the next two years we are aiming to grow organically to a community of 500 specialists whose work will focus on developing banking solutions for ING Group.

There are 3 other ING hubs in the world. One in Katowice, Poland, working mainly on IT infrastructure, one in Bratislava, Slovakia and another one in Manila, The Philippines, both focusing on banking operations. ING Software Development Center in Bucharest, Romania is the only hub developing software solutions.

Sharing the purpose of empowering people to stay a step ahead in life and in business, ING Software Development Center develops banking solutions in the fields of Core Banking Development, Financial Markets and Data Management for ING Group, including ING Bank Romania.
