Full time Developer JAVA

Job Description

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. 

Must haves:

  • Passionate about technology and its relationship with business and user experience.
  • Ability to work independently and plan your own solutions to problems.
  • Possess empathy for the user and able to build great code that drives fantastic user experience.
  • Strong communication skills and ability to articulate complex and technical concepts to non-technical audiences.
  • Be willing to travel, to work and learn with dev teams in Estonia and Ukraine.
  • Excitement to work in a high-growth startup, and throw themselves fully into a revolution.
  • Be open, communicative, and fun to work with.
  • Several years of developer experience (preferable in Java and JVM languages)
  • High coding standards (TDD, Clean Code)
  • Experience in performance tuning
  • Passion for making a difference
  •  

Nice to haves:

  • Be a customer of TransferWise
  • Good front-end skills and eye for good UX 

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) with full relocation from any part of the world!

Some important stuff we would like you to know

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. You might need a reasonable adjustment if you’ve got a disability.
