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

Please note that this is a 1 year fixed term contract role with Wise.

We’re looking for a Technical Recruiter to join our growing team in Singapore. Working alongside the Global and APAC recruitment team, you will have the chance to take part in building the team culture and to have a massive impact on shaping our recruitment team. 

The role is a unique opportunity to identify and hire the best talent across the globe and help our Engineering Organisation to scale in Singapore to enable Wise to achieve our mission helping millions of people to move money without borders.

You’ll receive a competitive package including private healthcare amongst other benefits.

Your mission:

  • Help us scale our Engineering Organisation over the next few years so we can help more customers save money using Wise
  • Build world class recruitment flows alongside the hiring teams with strategy and process at the heart of data driven decisions 
  • Build long-term relationships with talented people and guide them through a seamless end-to-end recruitment process, supporting them every step of the way
  • Give our candidates an awesome experience, even if they weren’t successful (you never know, the perfect role might come up later), and build a strong talent network locally and internationally
  • Define the best way of sourcing globally to attract the best engineering talent from  around the world 
  • Work closely together with our Employer Brand and Marketing team to set up recruitment marketing campaigns, and organise various events
  • Partner with our hiring teams to support them through their hiring initiatives including on-boarding, talent mapping, salary benchmarking
  • Use data to figure out the blockers to hiring, communicate how these can be achieved and continually optimise the process to make sure it is globally scalable
  • Collaborate with the wider People team so contracts, visas, background checks and on-boarding happen like clockwork

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
  • Work autonomously while demonstrating impact in an environment where regular feedback and change is the norm
  • Be flexible in how and where you work, we understand that everyone needs a little something different so we’ll do our best to make it happen
  • Inspire teams with your ideas, knowledge and self-starting attitude

A bit about you: 

  • You are an experienced in-house Recruiter with a proven track record of success recruiting for tech roles
  • You have a network of trusted contacts and measure success in candidate satisfaction
  • You’re a great sourcer who finds joy in sourcing for the best people for your hiring teams and you have creative ways of finding potential talent
  • You don’t get scared when you hear terms like Boolean search or X-ray and you find your way around sourcing on various platforms
  • You are ready to go beyond sourcing candidates and managing the interview process and look at the bigger picture – you can spot great candidates who’ll fit with our culture not just those with the purest skill set
  • You are an adaptable self-starter – someone who can use their own initiative to keep things running at pace and won’t wait for answers 
  • You feel comfortable dealing with ambiguity and an ever-changing environment
  • You are a creative problem solver. A tricky niche role won’t get you down. It’s a challenge that just spurs you on to find a new approach and try something new. You're curious and get a real kick out of learning different skills
  • You are a confident communicator and influencer, comfortable talking to people of any level, whether it’s in person, on the phone or in writing. You understand how best to adapt your approach to your audience

Some extra skills that would be awesome: 

  • You’ve worked in or recruited for a startup or high growth company before
  • Familiarity with our Greenhouse ATS

Please Note: We can't offer visa sponsorship for this position, you must have the right to work in Singapore. 

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.
