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 and PayPal founder Max Levchin, we're disrupting the world of international money transfer. That means flipping a gazillion dollar industry on its head and making the world of financial services that little bit fairer for everyone.

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 helping more than a million customers send money abroad and avoid exorbitant fees.

We’re looking for a smart analytical thinker who can help us spread the revolution where it’s needed the most. You’ll work with our growing Affiliate Marketing team - spread across 3 offices as part of our Performance Marketing team - helping us partner with sites that educate new audiences about sending money abroad, and explain the benefits of TransferWise.

So, what’s the role?

You’ll be helping our growing Affiliate team take their data-driven approach to the next level. We’re not just looking for someone who's good with data - you’ll need to develop an understanding of how growth through marketing works, and be able to coach and steer the whole team to look at the right numbers and draw good conclusions
You’ll work closely with the team on a variety of projects, enabling us to understand how our customers think, what they do, how well we are reaching them and how we can make their lives better
Other projects focus on searching for and prioritising partners to contact, working with top-performers to optimise results and improving our affiliate incentive model
On top of this, you’ll be running product tests, and building slick reports to measure and share progress
We’re a cross-functional team, so you’ll work side-by-side with marketing, product and engineering to ensure your analysis and insights translate into meaningful impact for our customers, fast
What skills do I need?

A track record in analytical thinking, with good examples of having made a real impact, proactively
A good analytics “toolbox” - whether it’s Excel, Python, R or something else entirely - you should be used to analysing business data sets and building reports
Solid SQL skills
Excellent communication skills - you can summarise the complex, and present data visually in a way that makes people say “got it!”
Ability to influence and mentor others to become more data-driven
A self-starter who’s comfortable working autonomously, can take ownership of a project and see it through to real impact for our customers
Hands-on experience of growth through marketing, especially affiliate and SEO/SEM marketing, is a big plus
In return, you’ll have the chance to work in a fun, friendly atmosphere with plenty of opportunities to grow and be part of our revolution. We'll offer you a competitive salary, your own slice of the revolution in the form of stock options, and a host of other benefits including private health insurance, pension and a lot of free food. You can even bring your pets into the office.


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.
