We’re looking for a Senior Product Manager to join our growing Europe Money Movement team in Budapest or Tallinn. This role is a unique opportunity to have an impact on Wise’s mission, grow as a product leader and help save millions more people money.
At Wise, we are fully devoted to our Mission: Money without borders. Instant, convenient, and eventually free. And we know that we can only get there if we are investing strategically to be able to expand fast and grow further.
Wise has pioneered new ways to transfer money across borders. Our customers can also manage their hard-earned money with the world’s first platform to offer true multi-currency banking. With over 16 million+ happy customers we’re already moving more than £9 billion in cross-border transactions a month. We serve a wide range of customers from personal users, freelancers, small businesses to enterprise businesses and banks.
Your mission would be to help Wise become the preferred choice of payments in Europe for people and businesses with international lives. You will be building and improving the money movement infrastructure for millions of customers who move money to and from Europe.
As our Senior Product Manager for the Europe Money Movement team, you’ll be at the forefront of scaling our European payment infrastructure. Here’s how you’ll contribute:
- Convenience: Removing reasons why people and businesses need to use their banks to move their money. You will build integrations and partnerships that improve end to end speed of transfers and localise the money movement experience for European customers. e.g. building local account details for Hungary
- Scalability: Build a scalable money movement platform that reduces onboarding and offboarding time for our partners and effort required to maintain partner integrations. This allows us to ensure continuity of services for our customers.
- Resilience: Ensure seamless money transfers by enhancing our infrastructure’s resilience and reducing reliance on singular partners.
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 while being accountable for your decisions.
- Build money without borders in Europe. You will be building a product that helps millions of businesses and customers send and receive money from their friends, family and partners in Europe.
- Learn how European payment infrastructure works. You will get a chance to hands on build integrations directly into European payment systems and develop an expertise on how money moves in Europe.
- Be on the forefront of solving a complex technical challenge. Wise is probably the only company integrated into payment systems of so many countries around the world, and the number will keep on growing. Scaling this infrastructure is a problem very few, if anyone, have solved before. You will be at the forefront of this problem, allowing you to flex your creative muscles to solve global money movement for our customers once and for all. You would most likely end up setting best practices not just for Wise but the industry at large.

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 👇
