Wise is one of the fastest growing companies in Europe and we’re on a mission: to make money without borders the new normal. We’ve got 10 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 need a talented Engineering Team Lead to join our mission.

Team you’ll be working in: Business Convenience

In the Business Convenience team we are building the best possible experience for all of our business customers. The team was born from the necessity of adapting and developing our product, initially fully focused on consumers, to solve the problems of all sorts of businesses.

From enabling multi user access to Wise accounts, to allowing the creation of custom roles that could satisfy the necessities of each individual business, or to adding the possibility of requiring transfers to be approved by multiple people before being paid out, the Business Convenience team develops all sort of functionalities useful for our business customers to onboard into the product and to have the fastest, cheapest and easiest way of managing their finances.

Business Convenience works in one of the biggest areas of growth for our company, making this Engineering Lead a key role for our business. The team is distributed, with most of its engineers based in London and Budapest.

Your role in the team:

  • You’ll be responsible for the overall health and productivity of the engineers within your team
  • You’ll provide feedback on architecture and approach and help teams make data-driven decisions 
  • You’ll have an overview of what’s happening across the organisation and thinking about engineering as a whole 
  • When needed, you’ll roll your sleeves up to be involved in the entire process

Is that you?

  • Experience leading, coaching and mentoring driven and high performing teams
  • A passion for international finance, foreign exchange and payment systems 
  • Comfortable working on big challenges and taking full ownership of the customer journey
  • Experience building and designing scalable and performing systems
  • Experience working with Java, Spring framework, asynchronous message queues and have worked with microservices architecture 
  • Experience in designing, deploying and maintaining clean RESTful APIs
  • Comfortable with SQL databases, optimisation and transaction

…but don’t worry we don’t expect you to know everything!

What does success look like in this role? 

  • You’ll have found your place in our mission by understanding how to drive engineering solutions and look to future challenges
  • You’ll understand our customers and the impact our product makes in their lives 
  • You’ll make contributions to the wider engineering goals of the company
  • You’ll inspire a team environment where ideas are shared and openness is valued
  • You’ll help us scale-up and build a world class money transfer product that impacts millions of customers

What you get back:

  • The ability to choose your own path to success – you’ll have the freedom to define the vision 
  • The freedom to have real impact
  • The opportunity to inspire teams 
  • A fun work environment with social activities and events

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.
