Software Engineer – Governance Engineering – London

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. We transferred over £54 billion in the Financial Year 2021 alone, 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 Software Engineer with a passion for infrastructure to join our mission.

Our Governance Engineering team is responsible for building and maintaining the services that help ensure Wise’s cloud infrastructure meets all the necessary compliance and governance requirements for a growing FinTech business. To this end you will be working with us to develop tooling and provide hands-on technical expertise to design, deploy, and optimise how our infrastructure is provisioned and managed in a compliant and cost-effective way on AWS and possibly other major cloud providers.

We operate on a strong belief in automation, programmatic implementation, and repeatable design patterns.  We’re looking for people who can step back and think holistically about the ecosystem, but also follow through and help implement the design; drawing on the resources across the rest of the platform.

  • Experience with DevOps practices including infrastructure as code, continuous integration and automated deployment.

  • Good knowledge of cloud networking and security
  • Using configuration management or software delivery platforms to manage systems 
  • Good discipline and skill in producing written documentation and diagrams
  • Experience managing authentication and authorization across a large organisation including handling user lifecycles and role-based access control
  • Cloud cost management 
  • Experience working in regulated businesses, PCI etc
