About the opportunity

We are seeking a Head of Product to lead the Assistance segment at N26. Our Assistance segment exists to create a product experience for customers that achieves the level of trust and support that they would otherwise expect in a face to face interaction at a branch.

The Assistance segment aims to predict issues that customers have, and give them the guidance they need to solve them themselves. In the event that customers do need to talk to a customer support specialist, it is on the Assistance segment to facilitate the seamless resolution of the contact through our in-app contact channels and a best-in-class tooling landscape for our customer operations teams.

  • Act as a role model for the product and organisational culture.
  • Engage other segment leads to ensure a seamless user experience.
  • Work closely with cross-functional leaders in the segment to ensure that teams are set up for success.

What you need to be successful:

  • 5+ years of demonstrated product and people leadership experience for a mobile or digital consumer product.
  • Hands on experience building out a tooling landscape for customer operations, including the end to end responsibility for inbound contact channels and management of cases throughout the lifecycle of a contact, optimised for resolution. Knowledge of and experience with Salesforce Service Cloud is a bonus.
  • Relentless collaboration as a default way of working.
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal, with the ability to build relationships with a broad range of stakeholders at all levels.
  • A successful track record of leading strategy for a suite of products where reliability, efficiency and quality are paramount.
  • Strong understanding of user behaviour and using the analysis of this behaviour to champion the user at every step of our customers journey.
  • Ideas on how to keep us at the top of our game! Creativity and a passion for staying on the cutting edge of technology will be key to your success.
  • Your well-honed people leadership skills, with a history of building and leading high-performing product teams, round out your profile.


  • Actively help yourself (and others) be successful
  • Continuously learn and challenge the status quo
  • Think globally, act locally
  • Strong bias for action
  • Give and receive open, direct and timely feedback
