About TransferWise

TransferWise is the clever new alternative to banks and brokers, that allows people to transfer money abroad at a lower cost than ever before. It uses technology developed by the people who built Skype and PayPal to remove all the fees the foreign exchange industry has kept hidden for decades. Customers transfer more than half a billion pounds every month using TransferWise, putting £22 million back in their pockets - and that's a number that is growing rapidly!

Our culture is driven by empowering people to make intelligent decisions with our customer at the centre. We hire intelligent people, and believe they can reach their full potential when given the autonomy to experiment and develop innovative ways to deliver a better product.

Our people are extremely proud of working here and that shows through the commitment and passion in everyday life at TransferWise. This is a place where you will develop yourself as well as make a very visible difference for people worldwide.

Our customers can also manage their hard-earned money with the world’s first platform to offer true multi-currency banking. Your mission is to help  run the engine of the company delivering funds to wherever in the world our customers need them as fast as possible.

    • Contribute to overall analytics strategy, ensuring that data and analytics is discoverable and leveraged
  • You will help automating treasury operational decisions, dig in piles of data to find golden insights.
  • You will help us manage liquidity and mitigate FX risk in the smartest way, build operational tools and develop data controls for operations processes.

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 TransferWise but you’ll have the freedom to make your own calls
  • Grow as an Analyst – Analysts at TransferWise have a broad remit and skillset. You’ll develop to make real customer impact, from analysis to feature engineering
  • Be part of our mission to make money without borders the new normal

About you: 

  • You’ve experience working across product teams, supporting them with data, and driving operational change. Core to this will be the ability to define key product metrics and track ongoing product improvements. You should be comfortable defining metrics that track cost, risk and operational efficiency.
  • You have worked with data modelling or forecasting and are able to make strong, data-based recommendations to product teams.
  • You’re proficient with database, analytics and visualisation technologies (we use Snowflake, Looker and Python, but other stacks are welcome).
  • You have experience in working on financial data and have worked with FP&A, financial controllers or auditors.
  • You’re a self-starter who is comfortable working autonomously and with teams located across our offices. You’re not afraid to get your hands dirty, prioritise your focus based on impact, and are able to own a project from start to finish. 
  • You can take complex, fuzzy problems and boil them down into concise and actionable insights
  • You are a story-teller of data and can communicate your findings to different stakeholders. You can summarise the complex, and present data visually in a way that makes people say “got it!”

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, qualifications aren’t that important to us. If you’ve got great experience, and you’re great at articulating your thinking, we’d like to hear from you.

And because we believe that diverse teams build better products, we’d especially love to hear from you if you’re from an under-represented demographic.
