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.

A bit about the job

  • 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.

A bit about you

  • 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 R, and you are able to learn the tools needed for a given task

Benefits

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. 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.
