KYC AGENT - JAPANESE OR CHINESE SPEAKING

Who we are

TransferWise was founded in 2011 with a clear mission: Money without borders - so people and businesses can send and receive any currency effortlessly, whenever, wherever.

The heart of what we do is international money transfer and we’re committed to making it instant, convenient and fair for millions of people, all over the world. We are growing our different products and teams at an exciting pace and we’re looking for the very best to join us on this mission.

What it’s really like to work here

At TransferWise, we do things a bit differently. There’s no corporate nonsense, and no old-fashioned hierarchy. Instead, we work in dozens of self-sufficient, autonomous teams. Think of them like start-ups within a start-up.

Each team picks the problems they want to solve, there is no room for micro-management here and no hiding behind fancy job titles. And no one telling you what to do. You are your own boss. But you’ll get tons of guidance and plenty of support from talented, super-smart colleagues from all over TransferWise.

We’re going to be upfront — the way we work doesn’t suit everyone. But if freedom, autonomy, and life-affirming, head-scratching professional challenges rock your world, we could be a match made in heaven.

As a fast growing FinTech company TransferWise has revolutionised the way we do international money transfers. We are constantly evolving and improving how the service looks and feels to our customers all over the world from the United States to Australia. While doing so we also have to comply with all of the regulatory guidelines and requirements for checking our customers’ identity.

  • Onboarding customers who are using TransferWise in different Asian countries (main focus Japan and Hong Kong)

  • Understanding our CDD (Customer Due Diligence) processes and regulatory requirements
  • Answering TransferWise due diligence process related queries from customers, partners, and other teams
  • Pointing out problems in our processes and helping find solutions for improvements

A bit about you, what we expect from you
