Your mission as a lead is to grow a team of analysts, who would help enable our financial crime prevention teams (Fraud, AML, KYC or Verification) to scale globally and help drop our costs. You’ll also work extensively with our Operations leadership team, to help them as they manage, improve and scale our operations.

You’ll oversee our contact data and share contact attribution along with actionable insights across the product teams, helping them engage with the data correctly and in turn reduce contact rates
You’ll identify opportunities how to use our data and machine learning , in order to automate and optimise our processes and solutions
This role will give you the opportunity to:
- Choose your path to impact – we believe people are most empowered when they can act autonomously. So rather than telling you what to do, you’ll work with your team to create a vision of your own. Of course, you can always gather feedback from smart, curious people across Wise but you’ll have the freedom to make your own calls
- Grow as a leader – Build your team and inspire them to contribute to our mission
- Be part of our mission to make money without borders the new normal
- You have experience working across operational teams. You can lead operational analysis, support them with data, and drive operational change

- You know your way around the infrastructure of analytics and have worked with cloud warehouses (e.g. Snowflake, BigQuery, or Redshift), have knowledge of BI tools (e.g. Looker, Periscope, or Metabase) and/or visualisation tools (e.g. PowerBI or Tableau)
- You're highly proficient with SQL, able to write structured and sustainable code and continue to develop and refine this skillset
- You have experience structuring basic research experiments (A/B testing)
- You can take complex, fuzzy problems and boil them down into concise and actionable insights
Nice to haves:
- Experience working in KYC/Fraud prevention domains is a plus

- Relocation support
- Generous parental leave
- Pension scheme
- Paid sabbatical

How we work
At Wise, we work differently and we’re proud of it. Here you’ll have bucket loads of freedom, responsibility and autonomy. In practise, this means working in autonomous teams. Working this way helps us move at speed and achieve our mission faster.
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’ve come a long way, but we’re only just getting started.
Compensation and stock
At Wise, all our employees have a share in our mission and the responsibility to make our product a success. Our team’s priority is to ensure our compensation packages are competitive, fair and transparent. Stock is one of the ways we share the value of our growth and is a key part of our compensation package. But how does stock work? Find out 👇
There are many ways in which you can progress at Wise, but we’re all encouraged to drive our own development and to grab the right opportunities. What you can accomplish here isn’t set by your job title or your previous experience. Read more about it from our employees 👇
Yes, you’ll get the usual stuff like a laptop, holidays and a salary but we don’t just want to sell you a list of benefits. We’d like to explain a bit more about why we offer what we do. Read on to find out more.
