Wise is one the fastest growing companies in Europe and we’re on a mission to make money without borders the new normal. We’ve got 13 million customers across the globe and we’re growing. Fast.

Current banking systems don't let us send, spend or receive money across borders easily. Or quickly. Or cheaply. 

So, we’re building a new one.

And, we’re looking for a Technical Project Manager to join our Platform Tribe.

Your mission:

Here at Wise we are working hard to ensure our engineering teams are empowered with the capabilities and knowledge to launch products that delight our customers. To support this vision we are looking for an exceptional Technical Project Manager to work in our platform team.

What do you need to succeed in this role?

  • Experience leading the delivery of complex, high risk and high impact projects
  • This role is working with internal teams and external partners and vendors so direct experience of leading multi-disciplinary cross company projects is key.
  • An affinity for and ability to understand technical details is key for this role, as is being able to communicate widely with non-technical people. This is not a hands on technical role, but you will spend a lot of time helping engineers to solve technical challenges.
  • Familiarity with modern software architectures, in both cloud environments AWS and in traditional datacenters.
  • Wise is a rapidly growing company that is proud of its ability to ship quickly so experience working in a similar entrepreneurial environment is key.
  • Proven skill in creative problem solving.
  • Experience of in all phases of project management from project vision and scoping to final delivery.
  • Strong commitment to doing things in a sustainable way, including identifying and working through difficult decisions needing to be made around scope and realistic delivery.
  • Be able to define, mitigate and communicate overall project risk to project team and stakeholders

Nice to Have

  • Wise provides financial services so experience of working in a regulated business and working with regulators (Experience of PCI-DSS, ISO27000, or similar security requirements is a plus).
  • Ability to coach engineers on how to manage their project – without actively getting involved and driving the project yourself.

This role will give you the opportunity to:

  • Choose your own path to success – you’ll have the freedom to define the vision and the responsibility for making it happen
  • 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
  • Travel to work with our teams in our offices around the world
  • Inspire teams with your ideas, knowledge and self-starting attitude
