Originally born in Europe in 2011, Wise launched in the US five years later in September 2016. We now have many thousands of active customers, moving millions of dollars in cross border volume and are growing rapidly YOY serving both consumers and businesses. Money transfer is the biggest part of our business (70% of volume) and we see big growth opportunities with our multi currency account (receive and hold money). We are early in our journey in a big market with a current market share of 4%. The US market is currently our 2nd biggest behind the UK.
In the US we have over 600 people across all locations and functions with 100+ in our new full stack Austin office (product and operational teams) as well as 50 in New York (product and regulatory) and 450 in our operational hub in Tampa.
The current US Board members are Kristo Kaarmann (CEO), Sharon Anne Kean (Product Lead – International Expansion) and Harsh Sinha (CTO). Quarterly Board meetings are held in the New York office but can also be attended on a remote basis.
We are looking for an Independent Non-Executive Director with strong regulatory experience in US markets who can support the development of our relationships with the national and state regulators in the US, and advise on how we build out our internal compliance policies and processes. We are also looking for someone who has a growth mindset, with either product or operational experience of payments and can provide strategic direction on where we invest our resources to best achieve continued growth.
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.
Also, where and what you studied isn’t important to us. If you’ve got great experience, the right skills for the role and you’re great at articulating your thinking, we’d like to hear from you.

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.
P.S. Our employees can also work remotely from anywhere for 90 days a year 🌎
