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.

Sure, 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. But we're growing our other products and our teams at an exciting pace. And we're looking for the very best to jump on board.

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 that learn from each other.

Each team picks the problems they want to solve. So there's no micro-management. 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.

Job description, tasks

  • You will make sure the team has a vision - *what* to build and how to measure success
  • You will turn the vision into actions - KPI goals to quarterly plans to tasks and engineering sprints
  • You will work with a team of engineers, analysts, accountants and operations specialists to achieve the goals - build a product that ensures the availability of clean, accurate and compliant financials in all our entities worldwide in a timely manner
  • You will work with other product engineering teams to ensuring alignment of product development, finance team needs, regulator and auditor requirements.

Requirements

  • You can effectively work with people with different backgrounds - engineers, product managers, operations specialists
  • You see the big picture - value for the customer, how the product and business processes work, how the data flows
  • You know how to develop strong product assumptions, validate them fast and estimate potential trade-offs before starting the implementation.
  • You are data-driven with a structural and pedantic approach. You need to be able to prioritise the value you can add.
  • You have strong technical background: SQL for you as fluent as English language

Beneficial skills

  • It would be nice if you have experience in finance/accounting, you are oriented in basic accounting and financial terminology so that you can easier understand, evaluate and explain implications of product decisions on TransferWise group accounting processes.
  • Tech background - you can have a dialog with an engineer or other product managers in the "same language"
