Rubik's Cube, a 3-D combination puzzle, was invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Ernő Rubik.
Erno realized that if each of the blocks revolved around a rounded center, they could move freely, without breaking or losing the cube shape.
We are working on a transformation programme that will unite ING Retail businesses in four Challenger countries Spain, Italy, France, and the Czech Republic onto one advanced digital platform serving more than six million customers : this is what we call the Rubik platform.
We rely on new technologies extracting the greatest functionality from each of them, with Agile Methodology, in an international environment where the official language is English, and where there is only room for colleagues who are as good at working with people as with machines.
There are 43,252,003,274,489,856,000 possible positions in the Rubik's cube, but only by choosing the right ones in each moment leads you to the desired solution of the puzzle.
We look for people who are passionate about algorithms and technological challenges to help us push the squares of our cube and discover optimal movements that we could never even have imagined.
We know that you could take off all the stickers and put them back, making it look like it's finished... but we don’t do things like this.
We want people concerned about clean code, scalability, code testing... and lazy, very lazy, who want to automate everything to never have to do it again ;)
