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 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 Senior Android Engineer to join our mission and help provide our customers with the best mobile experience possible. 

The team you’ll be working with: Assets team, working on how money is held in the Wise Account. For any currency you can choose to hold it as one of several asset types, each having a different financial function, risk and reward profile. Spending from Assets will always be instant. The freedom to grow with the simplicity of a current account.

What does it take? 

  • A passion for technology, product and user experience
  • Familiarity with Continuous Delivery approach
  • The ability to work independently and plan your own solutions to problems
  • Thinking from the customer perspective and putting them at the heart of everything you do

Is that you?

  • Experience building Android libraries/apps that delight users
  • Great communication skills and the ability to articulate complex, technical concepts to non-technical audience
  • Full-stack Android development (Activities, Fragments, Views, Services, Broadcast Receivers, Content Providers, SQLite, etc.)
  • Experience with Android libraries (such as Android ViewModels, Room DB, Android Navigation, Dagger DI, Retrofit etc.)
  • The desire for creating clean, testable code
  • Practical experience of SOLID principles and when and how to apply them

  • Strong understanding of REST API Design
  • Ability to autonomously organise and prioritize tasks
  • Experience with backend driven UI would be good to have
  • Any experience with Jetpack Compose, Kotlin Flow and Kotlin Multi-platform would be great!
…but don’t worry we don’t expect you to know everything!

What does success look like?

  • You’ll understand our customers and drive the growth of our mobile users
  • You’ll be building new tools for customers so they can resolve payments without contacting us
  • You’ll be helping us ensure reliability of our app
  • You’ll have onboarded and found your place through understanding your team and tribe vision and how you can contribute

What you get back:

You’ll also be able to ask us any questions you might have.

Pair Programming Interview

The goal of a pair-programming interview is to verify that a candidate can solve a “medium level” coding task within 40-45 minutes. In order to achieve it, we will use an interactive coding platform on HackerRank where the idea is for an interviewer to collaborate with the candidate and help him/her to solve a given task. You can find out more on Pair Programming here.

Technical Interview

The Technical Interview round will usually comprise of a casual chat with the interviewers about some of your recent work that you are proud of, you could expect questions around justifying some of the choices you’ve made or discussing solutions for hypothetical problems that interviewers present. There will also be a coding round, a language-agnostic solution designing  and you will also have a chance to ask questions so you can find out more about Wise.

Product Interview

The product interview focuses on evaluating your ability to understand details of a problem and how to prioritise what to build when solving it. You can find out more about how we think about Product Engineering on this blog.

Final Interview

The final interview’s focus will be around the feedback you got from the previous interviewers  (which we will keep you informed about) and also with a bit of culture fit, motivation and your vision on how you see yourself working at Wise. The final interview usually takes 1 hour + will still involve some technical questions.
