Early Careers

This is a brilliant opportunity for you to work while being supported to achieve the ACA qualification from the ICAEW. Supported by a training manager, you’ll work towards completing the ACA qualification across a 3 year programme.

Wise is one of the fastest growing companies in Europe

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.

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.

Moving billions of GBP of customer money in more than 70 countries, Wise must have bulletproof financials. We need timely, accurate and scalable financial data to be compliant with regulations. As a Wise graduate in Finance, you’ll make smart business decisions so that our customers, regulators and investors can trust us to be sustainable.

How you’ll contribute to our Finance team: 

Your role will span across multiple parts of the Finance Tribe technical teams. You’ll help us build a sustainable real time financial data engine, to ensure our financials are looking healthy. You’ll also support stakeholders with data, modelling and data investigation. When you join the graduate programme, we’ll jointly decide what your first focus areas will be, and later you can move around the Tribe to drive different areas, and help us achieve our mission.

The role will give you the opportunity to: 

  • Make an impact – you’ll have an opportunity to build, own and grow parts  of the financial engine of one of the fastest-growing fintech companies in Europe
  • Own your path to success – you’ll have a high level of autonomy and responsibility
  • Expand your skills and develop for the future – build efficient engineering solutions, analytical data pipelines, reporting and outputs
  • Gain more experience that will allow you to grow with Finance as well as the wider Wise team 
  • Work in an international Finance Team and learn a lot about Finance, financial technology and driving financial sustainability of a fast growing company

In your 3 rotations as a Graduate Analyst:

  • You’ll onboard (remotely if necessary) and spend some time understanding your team and tribe’s vision. Once you know this, you’ll better understand how you can contribute
  • Understand the culture. We work in autonomous teams, so you’ll need time to understand how that works
  • Understand how finance works at Wise and what each team and tribe does. You’ll get a chance to explore different domains within finance and get an opportunity to deepen the knowledge of some of them (depending on the teams for rotation)
  • Improve SQL and python skills, gain hands-on experience and knowledge about databases, get to know different data structures and learn to use them appropriately
  • Build data transformations that power analysis, automate reports that result in actions by teams and communicate insights in an easy-to-follow manner
  • Have an opportunity to plan, structure, and execute projects that will help the team with data
  • Take part in team meetings and ceremonies, share the updates and communicate in written and verbal forms with different stakeholders

What does it take? These things are a must:

  • You are a final year student studying a Bachelors or Masters degree. This might be in Finance, Economics, Financial Technology, Data Science  (or something similar)
  • Familiarity with SQL and/or experience using Python for data analysis 
  • You have some knowledge or strong commitment to learn finance business domain
  • Great communication skills and the ability to articulate complex, technical concepts to a non-technical audience
  • Curious, keen to learn and proactive by nature
  • Instead of waiting for a task you can propose a problem statement, model, approach and solution
  • You can work with minimal direction beforehand and are strong in structuring your approach towards problem resolution
  • You are open to and value feedback in order to improve
  • You are eligible to work in the EU

And these would be great, but aren’t essential:

  • A previous analyst internship, ideally at a fintech or start up
  • You can develop data visualisations using typical BI tools (we use Looker, Tableau)

What you get back:

  • 🚀 Stock options in a growing company 
  • 💪 We’ll cover your ICAEW membership, tuition & exam fees
  • 🐶 Pet friendly offices 
  • 💸 Salary from €2,000
  •  🏃‍♀️Lots of team activities 
  • 🏝️ A paid 6-week sabbatical leave after four years 

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.

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.
