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.

Job Description

TransferWise is one the fastest growing companies in Europe and we’re on a mission: to make money without borders the new normal. We’ve got 8 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’re looking for a Senior Engineer with strong experience in microservices and testing to join our Engineering Experience team in London. 

Your mission:

In this role, you’ll work together with our Engineers and lead cross-team efforts to improve productivity in our Engineering organisation. This means deep-diving into the challenges faced by our different teams, identifying patterns and working to create and maintain company-wide tools to help our teams ensure high quality releases. You’ll help build capability programs to empower our teams to solve their own challenges.

A bit about you: 

  • You’re passionate about helping others and keen to roll up your sleeves and take ownership to drive company-wide impact
  • You have experience with good testing practices in a microservices architecture
  • You’ve got a deep understanding of Continuous Delivery strategies in a microservice architecture
  • You’re flexible to work on different kinds of projects. You’ll be working on a wide range of projects from collecting delivery performance metrics to identifying patterns and coding internal tools to boost productivity
  • You have strong communication skills and the ability to articulate complex and technical concepts across multiple teams
  • You’re willing to travel and interested in working with and learning from our Engineers across our global offices
  • You’re excited to work in a disruptive, fast-growing and fun environment

Some extra skills that would be awesome: 

  • You’ve worked with large distributed systems
  • You’ve got a Java background, preferably with Spring Boot
  • Experience with Kubernetes, Python and frontend development are a plus, too

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

 

This role will give you the opportunity to:

  • Choose your own path to success – you’ll have the freedom to define the vision and the responsibility for making it happen
  • Be flexible in how and where you work, we understand everyone needs a little something different so we’ll do our best to make it happen
  • Travel to work with our teams in our offices around the world
  • Inspire teams with your ideas, knowledge and self-starting attitude

 

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.
