    • And safeguard customer funds
  • You will automate treasury operational decisions, build operational tools and develop controls for operations processes to make sure we can continue scaling

  • Experienced people leader with teams of 20+

Nice to have:

  • Experience in building controls in a regulated environment

  • Business development experience with banks in negotiating and developing

    innovative products

This role will give you the opportunity to:

  • Choose your path to impact – we believe people are most empowered when they can act autonomously. So rather than telling you what to do, you’ll work with your team to create a vision of your own. Of course, you can always gather feedback from smart, curious people across TransferWise but you’ll have the freedom to make your own calls

  • Be flexible in how and where you work, we understand everyone needs a little something different so we’ll do our best to make it happen

  • Once travelling becomes safe again, you’ll have the opportunity to travel and work with our teams in Tallinn and Singapore as well as meet various partners and organisations when needed

  • Grow as a leader – You will scale and inspire your own team, but also other teams to contribute to our mission

 

About you:

  • You are a seasoned Product person (5 years + product management experience) with experience of inspiring others

  • You can lead people and build teams that deliver at scale – whether that is hiring for new talent or getting the best out of the existing team

  • You have empathy for your customers and can quickly identify the problems worth solving, explaining your rationale with data (rather than assumptions)

  • You have a proven ability in building products where there’s high degree of ambiguity on what to build in order to drive growth or mitigate risk

  • You delivered tools or internal products that optimise and scale financial operations environment (Trading, Pricing, Risk management, etc. )

  • You’re not afraid of learning skills you don’t know yet to unblock yourself and your team. You don’t stick to a “by the book” product lead role definition. You simply get it done.

  • You understand financial engineering and can clearly articulate and optimise trade offs between financial risks

  • You are hands-on with data and enjoy coaching analysts and supporting developers in prioritising technical debt and bugs versus building new features

  • You can easily communicate complex ideas to various crowds

 

Some extra skills that would be great (but not essential):

  • You know your way around basic back-end development

  • You work with Data Scientists on real-time MLAI models

  • You are comfortable with getting your own data using SQLPythonetc and build

    dashboards using BI tools like Lookertableau

We’re people without borders — without judgement or prejudice, too. We want to work with the best people, no matter their background. So if you’re passionate about learning new things and keen to join our mission, you’ll fit right in.

Also, qualifications aren’t that important to us. If you’ve got great experience, and you’re great at articulating your thinking, we’d like to hear from you.

And because we believe that diverse teams build better products, we’d especially love to hear from you if you’re from an under-represented demographic.
