Financial benefits and discounts

RSUs: We offer everyone who works for us RSU’s as we’re building Wise together and want you to share in the success of our $5billion company on a mission.

Personal development: There’s no shortage of learning opportunities at Wise and it’s up to you to choose where you want to develop your skills. That’s why all our employees have a dedicated yearly allowance to boost their professional development.

Transportation support: Depending on your preferred way of transport, you’ll get either a monthly ticket for travelling to the office on public transport, or a parking and cycling benefit.

Health and wellbeing

Annual leave: At Wise, you’ll get a minimum of 33 days off every year, including public holidays.

So we offer:

  • Statutory 24 weeks at full pay, plus 12 months at minimum wage for maternity leave
  • 18 fully paid weeks of paternity leave
  • 10 days leave on full pay for any Wisers affected by pregnancy loss, ​​including those who are partners or surrogate mothers.

Hybrid model of flexible working: Our employees can work remotely for 90 days a year. By ‘remote’ we don’t just mean from home, but from wherever in the world our employees choose. In addition to that, employees can choose to work from home up to three days a week. Find out more about our hybrid model of flexible working and why we introduced it from here.

Compassionate leave: We try our best to help our employees balance their work life with their personal/family life. There may be times when you need to care for another, have a family emergency that you weren’t expecting, or a bereavement. Compassionate leave is in place to use in these situations and covers up to 5 paid days per calendar year.

‘Me days’: 3 ‘me days’ per year to help them manage life — this can be used for life admin, when the world becomes a little too much, or for errands like vet visits.

Sick leave: We offer 15 days of sick leave per year, at full pay.

On site gym: We have a gym in the office you can use whenever you need!

All You Can Move card: We have an All You Can Move partnership making you eligible to enter the AYCM movement and financing it yourself. You can find more information from their website

A home away from home

Food and drinks: To start your day we provide all our employees with  breakfast which offers coffee and tea, toast, cereals and more to get your brain cells up and running. When you’re craving a snack, you can also find a variety of treats and drinks in our kitchen. Once a week we also have team lunch together!

Games area: Beat your colleagues with your table tennis and football skills or just relax on our console games.

Social events and paid company trip: We arrange various local company events throughout the year, as well as coming together for larger gatherings with our colleagues around the world, for example, Mission Days. Every year, we take all our employees on a paid company trip. The goal is to bring everyone together, have fun, align on our goals and celebrate our mission. Unfortunately the global pandemic has put our loved tradition on hold, but we’re definitely bringing it back when we can. Until then, we’re connecting locally, where and in ways we can.

Dogs: We’re a dog friendly company. You’re welcome to bring your well behaved friends to the office or pet the ones brought in by our colleagues.
