Job Description

TransferWise is the clever new way to move money between countries. Co-founded by Skype’s first employee and backed by some of planet's most experienced innovators, including Sir Richard Branson, we're disrupting the world of international money transfer. That means flipping a gazillion dollar industry on its head and taking power away from banks and the establishment.

Based in Shoreditch, the hub of London’s start-up scene, we’re growing at an extraordinary rate and looking for exceptional talent to jump on board. We’re currently 650 people strong and handling many millions of pounds daily.

We have a lot of live analytics roles in different teams in our London office and we are always looking to talk to smart people and figure out where their skills would best fit.

So, what’s the role of an analyst at TransferWise?

The role is to help us spread the revolution faster, by understanding how well we’re serving users around the world, figuring out what their needs are and how we can make their lives better
Helping teams prioritise product roadmap by quantifying various opportunities
Working side-by-side with marketing, product and engineering to ensure your analysis and insights translate into meaningful outcomes and a better experience for our customers.
What skills do you need?

A track record in analytical thinking and turning insight into action
Excellent communication skills - you can summarise the complex, and present data visually in a way that makes people say “got it!”
Excellent attention to detail
You go beyond the numbers and understand what the customer is thinking, combining data analysis with customer empathy
You are able to take ownership of a project and see it through to real impact
You’re a self-starter who’s comfortable working autonomously
Analysts at TransferWise pick the best tools for the job. Besides solid SQL and Excel, you are familiar with either Python or are, and you are able to learn the tools needed for a given task

Apart from a competitive salary and an all-expenses-paid company holiday (which are completely insane), stock options in one of Europe’s most hotly tipped startups, a shiny new laptop of your choice and team lunches every Friday, you won’t get much in the way of extras. However, we will give you 25 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.

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, or drop us an email at 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.
