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

We're looking for a full-time Full Stack Developer to join our growing team in London. The role is a unique opportunity to build beautifully simple experiences that guide our customers through TransferWise, helping them to live, travel and work internationally.

For our customers, using TransferWise should feel as simple as sending a text message. Yet behind our app and website lies a complex, one-of-a-kind engine of currencies and routes that's being designed, built and powered by our talented teams in cities around the world. With new capabilities being built every day, there's still heaps to figure out, and we can't do it alone.This role is a unique opportunity to have an impact on TransferWise’s mission, grow as a product leader and help save millions more people money.  

Your mission: 

TransferWise has already pioneered new ways for people to transfer money across borders and currencies. Our customers can also manage their hard-earned money with the world’s first platform to offer true multi-currency banking

Here’s how you’ll be contributing to the Engineering Team

  • Help us take TransferWise to the next level as we scale to impact 100's of millions more customers. You'll hide away all complexities under the hood of our product and build seamless experiences for our customers
  • Working on the core flow of TransferWise, you'll guide our customers from their first experience on our landing page to completing a transfer and making sure they are informed every step of the way
  • Create clear and helpful interfaces, whilst maintaining consistency, maintainability, performance and an understanding of what problems our customers might encounter along the way

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
  • 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 (when things get back to a new normal) to work with our teams in Tallinn and Budapest as well as meet various partners and organizations when needed
  • Inspire teams with your ideas, knowledge and self-starting attitude

About you:

  • You’ll be passionate about product and user experience – customers are at the heart of what you do and that empathy drives your decisions
  • You’ll have solid Java 8 knowledge and hands-on experience
  • You have experience with React, React native
  • You have high coding standards (TDD, Clean Code)
  • You know your way around dependencies, have experience in performance tuning and have used DB abstraction layers like Hibernate or messaging services (Apache Kafka, RabbitMQ, JMS)
  • You have experience working with Spring, Spring Boot and REST microservices
  • You have worked for several years within a production environment

Some extra skills that would be great:

  • You have experience with financial systems
  • You have knowledge of PostgreSQL, advanced types and query features
  • Perhaps you have experience with machine learning or other data driven development experience
  • You know your way around event driven architecture
  • You have some Groovy experience

Unfortunately, we’re unable to offer visa sponsorship for this role. With  current restrictions on global travel due to Covid-19, we’re not able to relocate any new joiners over the next few months. We encourage you to sign up for our job alerts to keep an eye on new roles posted as we’re hoping the situation will change soon.

 

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.
