Who are we?
WorldRemit is changing the way people send money abroad. We’ve taken something complicated and made it simple. Tap the WorldRemit App or click our website and your international transfer is made – to a bank account, cash pickup, Mobile Money, or airtime top-up. We send to more than 145 countries and the number is growing all the time.
Using WorldRemit is easy because we do the hard bit, connecting hundreds of banks, money agents, mobile operators and payment systems around the world. These were never designed to work together, but WorldRemit makes it happen.
The journey is just beginning. We believe in faster, simpler, lower-cost money transfers. That means building beautiful products and better services for our customers. Changing the world isn’t easy – so we only hire the most talented people. You need to think differently, believe in new solutions to old problems, and have the drive to make them happen.
WorldRemit has grown at an average 50% year on year and is now processing over £1.5bn of remittances on an annualised basis. The company recently went through its Series C financing and raised $40m – a show of confidence by the investor community in the growth trajectory of our business. The company currently employees over 650 employees and has a global footprint, with offices in London, US, Philippines, Poland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong and other locations.
