TransferWise is the clever new way to move money between countries. Co-founded by Skype's first employee and backed by some of planet's the most experienced innovators, including Sir Richard Branson, Andreessen Horowitz and PayPal’s Peter Thiel, TransferWise is disrupting the world of international money transfer. That means flipping a gazillion dollar industry on its head and taking power away from banks and the establishment.
We’re growing at an extraordinary rate and looking for the best to jump on board. We’re now over 600 people strong and pinging millions of pounds across the globe daily.
TransferWise is a 100% boredom-free zone. If you're looking for a stuffy financial company, the back button beckons. If you want to be part of something innovative and truly exciting, read on.
So, what’s the role?
Your mission is to build world-beating, world-class products. It’s a huge challenge, but an exciting one. You will help to define the future of TransferWise.
Leading by example
Not only will you lead a product team yourself, but we'd love it if you could help other diverse and autonomous product teams. This means understanding their potential and providing insights and data where necessary. As we are a data focused company, it helps to know what makes each of the teams tick to make sure they are focusing on the proper KPIs.
Communication and inspiration
You will be responsible for understanding the why and how of the product so you can communicate the TransferWise story to anyone - from your banker to their nan!
We have many satellite teams and it's important that you communicate product changes so that they stay in the loop.
What are we looking for?
At TransferWise, customers always come first. You need to be enthusiastic about our customers. We are a company doing great things, but we couldn’t do it without our customers being ready to start a revolution.
Either you have run your own company or delivered high impact projects.
You need to have ideas. You’re going to change the world, so we want to see what exceptional ideas you’ve had before.
Someone who loves to get things done
You make things happen instead of wondering why things happened.
You are not afraid to roll up your sleeves and take responsibility. We do not hire people just to manage other people. We expect you to deliver results directly.
A head for numbers
You are data-driven. You need to be able to prioritise the value you can add to customers, and numbers are the best way to do this. You can give examples of how you have moved some metrics before.
Attention to detail
If you’ve skimmed through without reading this bullet point, I’m sure a bank would love to have you. Our secret word is “mayonnaise”.
A technical knowledge
You may have started out your career as an engineer or maybe it's a secret passion. Either way you need to be able to communicate effectively with our product engineers.
As you might see below, we've made sending us your CV optional in the beginning (but it might be asked in later stages of the process). This is because at TransferWise, we are more interested in who you are, not what a piece of paper shows about you. We are curious to see what is it that you are passionate about and what makes you tick. So, in order for us to get a better sense of you, we’ve thought of two questions we’d like you to answer instead.
