Salary (annual)

95,000 - 130,000 GBP + benefits

Wise is one of the fastest growing companies in Europe and we’re on a mission: to make money without borders the new normal. We’ve got over 16 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 Lead to join our mission.

 

The team you’ll be working with:  Product Usage

The Product Usage Team plays a key role in how the Treasury Squad contributes to customer facing products across Wise. We are looking for an experienced Engineering Lead to join the Treasury Squad, leading this area. You would be responsible for shaping and delivering some of the key initiatives like: 

  • Improving the scalability and reliability of our exchange rates infrastructure;
  • Designing and building a system that would own all the rate policies across Wise, which includes providing easy and reliable integration for each individual product;
  • Designing and implementing real time data streaming flows to enable real time monitoring of metrics related to financial risks due to product misuse or high market volatility;
  • Rolling out and expanding dynamic pricing component which allows treasury to provide fair, flexible and transparent pricing of market volatility;

 

Your role in the team:

  • Working with different products and stakeholders
  • Designing and building near real-time processing and transformation pipelines
  • Improve the onboarding process by making it easier and robust to speed up shipping of the products
  • Work with product managers and analysts to setup better controls for the data we have and align stakeholders on these
  • Support and ensure that the team is meeting strict technical SLAs for processing
  • Supporting big data pipelines (dealing with Terabytes of data, with the data volume almost doubling YOY) to prepare data that can be used for real time as well as monthly reporting
  • Being responsible for the overall health and productivity of the engineers within your team
  • Providing feedback on architecture and approach and helping team make data-driven decisions 
  • Having an overview of what’s happening across the organisation and thinking about engineering as a whole
  • Rolling your sleeves up and coding, being involved in the entire process. Your hands-on involvement may reduce as the team size increases.

 

Is that you?

  • Experience leading, coaching and mentoring driven and high performing teams
  • A passion for international finance, foreign exchange and payment systems 
  • Comfortable working on big challenges and taking full ownership of the customer journey
  • Experience building and designing scalable and performing systems
  • Experience working with Java, Spring framework (or similar), asynchronous event driven microservices based architecture
  • Comfortable with SQL databases, optimisation and transaction

…but don’t worry we don’t expect you to know everything!

Nice to have bonuses:

  • Experience with Real time streaming frameworks/ technologies (Kafka Streaming, Apache Flink, Amazon Kinesis, or others)
  • Experience with Analytical Data Warehouses (Snowflake, Redshift, ClickHouse, or others)
  • Domain Experience: Financial accounting, IFRS Reporting

 

What does success look like in this role? 

  • You’ll build a good understanding of the domain and an overall understanding of the Wise business
  • You’ll have found your place in our mission by understanding how to drive engineering solutions and look to future challenges
  • You’ll understand our customers and the impact our product makes in their lives 
  • You’ll make contributions to the wider engineering goals of the company
  • You’ll inspire a team environment where ideas are shared and openness is valued
  • You’ll help us scale-up and build a world class money transfer product that impacts millions of customers
