Job Description

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.

Product engineers only

Here at TransferWise we don’t hire coders, who pick up tickets from a backlog and push code to production without considering value and impact.

Our growing IT team is looking for a talented developer who will help build internal tools for IT and other teams that use IT as a service. Someone who is passionate about building the best IT experience possible, automating anything capable of being automated and implementing hacky fixes to mundane problems while working in a disruptive, fast-growing and fun environment.

What you’ll be working on

Building a Toolbox application that helps TransferWise to keep track of employees, assets, manage access controls and do many other things. We see Toolbox as an application that contains custom built modules as well as integrations with many other external applications via APIs (greenhouse.io, desk.com, mandrill.com etc). Toolbox will become a one-stop-shop to support HR, IT and Finance teams.  The biggest challenge for building our Toolbox application is to always make the optimal choice between "build versus integrate".

Must haves:

  • Experience with Javascript
  • Experience in API programming
  • Strong configuration management, automation and scripting skills
  • Be willing to travel, to work and learn with dev teams across the world
  • Excitement to work in a high-growth company, and throw themselves fully into a revolution.
  • Be open, communicative, and fun to work with.

Nice to haves:

  • Some experience with internal IT help desk and/or customer support related work
  • Some knowledge of Windows, Linux or OSX scripting
  • Experience with PHP / Python / Ruby / SQL

Benefits:

Apart from the all-expenses-paid company trips, stock options in one of Europe’s most hotly tipped startups, a laptop and team lunches every other Thursday, you won’t get much in the way of extras. However, we will give you 28 days holiday a year (plus public holidays), a fun, friendly atmosphere, plenty of opportunities to grow and the chance to be part of our little revolution. Oh, and coffee, there’s plenty of coffee.

Not from Estonia? - No stress, we will help you (and your family) to relocate from any part of the world!

Some important stuff we would like you to know

To meet our regulatory obligations as a licensed financial services company, TransferWise needs to take background checks on all new hires, which may include Criminal and Credit checks. Please discuss with the Recruiter if you have any concerns regarding this process.

We want to make sure that our recruitment process is accessible to everyone. So if you need any reasonable adjustments – at any point in the process – we’ll do our best to help. Just let us know what you need on your application form. You might need a reasonable adjustment if you’ve got a disability. Or maybe you live overseas, and you’d prefer to meet us over Skype.

Please don’t send anything to the adjustments address if you’re a recruiter, or if you’re making a speculative application. We do work with recruiters from time to time – but only through LinkedIn. And we only accept job applications when a position is actually open. So you’re better off just checking the recruitment pages regularly.
