Wise, one of the world’s fastest-growing companies, is on a mission to redefine global finance by making money without borders the new norm. With 16 million customers worldwide, we are expanding rapidly, evidenced by a remarkable 145% increase in North American revenue from 2021 to 2023.

About Wise: Current banking systems present challenges in seamlessly sending, spending, and receiving money across borders. At Wise, we are crafting a new financial infrastructure to address these limitations. As a pioneer in innovative money transfer solutions, our platform also provides true multi-currency banking, allowing customers to manage their funds efficiently.

Position Overview: We are seeking an experienced Engineering Manager based in our Austin office, offering a flexible combination of in-office and remote work. As an integral part of our mission, you will lead a team dedicated to optimizing money movement between customers, banking partners, and Wise, leveraging the power of APIs.

Here’s how you’ll be contributing to the North America Team:

  • You’ll integrate Wise with the best banks in North America to power our money movement engine
  • You’ll build an infrastructure that enables Wise to send/receive money instantly in North America
  • You’ll multiply Wise’s growth rate by unlocking core functionality through the power of APIs and cross-border payments infrastructure – in short, the products you build will help Wise reach consumers and small businesses wherever they are managing their money in global environments.
  • You’ll lead, coach and grow a team locally in North America, as well as shape the technical vision in the Money Movement domain.
  • 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 and you are building a global API platform that truly works across borders.

What does it take?

    1. Working with other Wise leaders globally to achieve our Mission: Money without borders.
    2. Building a championship team. Fostering an environment of autonomy where everyone is encouraged to  identify and prioritize customer problems and opportunities.
    3. Helping your team make data-driven decisions by providing feedback on architecture and approach.
    4. Raise the bar for the team to reach new heights of technical excellence.
