Engineering Manager – Wise Account
Wise is one the fastest growing companies in the world 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 Engineering Manager, based in our Austin office (with a flexible combined in-office and WFH approach), to join our mission.
Wise has already pioneered new ways for people to transfer money across borders and currencies. Our customers can also manage their hard-earned money with the world’s first platform to offer true multi-currency banking.
Here’s how you’ll be contributing to the North America Team:
- You’ll help other people and businesses to bring out the best from their Wise Account. Save more money by receiving and holding money with Wise.
- You’ll lead, coach and grow a team locally in North America, as well as shape the Account vision for Wise globally.
- You’ll scale a best in class product across the US and Canada while ensuring the learnings you have in-market are shared back with our other global regions.
What does it take?
- Working with other Wise leaders globally to achieve our Mission: Money without borders.
- Building a championship team. Fostering an environment of autonomy where everyone is encouraged to identify and prioritize customer problems and opportunities.
- Helping your team make data-driven decisions by providing feedback on architecture and approach.
- Raise the bar for the team to reach new heights of technical excellence.

- You are still hands on with coding, and enjoy getting your hands dirty
…but don’t worry we don’t expect you to know everything!
Nice to have:

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.
