Risk & Fraud Prevention
Ashfaq, what do you particularly like about Wirecard?
Wirecard is an international company and those working here come from many different countries and cultures. I felt completely at home immediately. I am originally from India and previously lived in the USA. I moved to Bavaria two years ago with my wife, who is from here . All my colleagues speak English and that was also one of the reasons why I settled in at this company so quickly.

Surely you need to speak German outside the workplace though?
Yes, of course. Here, too, Wirecard supported me from the start. I was able to attend extremely good German language courses and have already reached level B2. I can now converse quite freely in my new language and am also able to write it well. My colleagues were brilliant in supporting me as I made this my new home and learnt German. Many have experienced for themselves what it is like to be in a foreign country and could understand what I was going through, having to completely start from scratch.
What do you think is in store for you in the foreseeable future?
I was already working as a quality engineer in risk and fraud protection in the USA. My superiors asked me on a number of occasions if I would be interested in switching to development. The time has now come for me to take on this new challenge. I know that Wirecard will provide me with the necessary individual support. A dynamic company needs employees who are always willing to develop and progress.
What are your hopes for Wirecard?
From year to year, Wirecard continues to grow in truly exciting markets and areas. The company is extremely successful and it is a great feeling to be a part of this success. That motivates me and I really enjoy it! All I wish is that this continues to be the case in future.
