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.
Here at Wise we’re working to create a seamless IT experience by offering all the tools people need to do the best work they can, and simultaneously avoid being a speed hump. We have a highly mobile, geographically diverse work environment. Currently we look after network infrastructure where VPN and wireless connectivity plays an important role.
We’re looking for an exceptional Infrastructure Engineer with software engineering experience or a Software Engineer with infrastructure experience to be part of our Network Engineering team to be based in either Tallinn, Budapest or London, to deliver automate, scalable, stable, and well documented solutions as part of the UT team and in collaboration with other Platform Engineering teams.
