We are looking for rising stars to join our User Experience Design and Brand/Creative team for a ten week paid internship programme in Summer 2023. We have placements open for four core disciplines: 

Product Design

  • You’ve got a portfolio that demonstrates a mix of well-crafted and user centred work
  • Strong visual design skills and a passion for finding solutions that allow customers to intuitively use our products
  • You’re able to clearly rationalise your decisions to other team members
  • You’re curious about learning from user testing and iterating on your work 

You’ll be part of Wise’s global mission to build an open, fair, and human financial system. Because people without borders need money without borders.

Your mission: 

You’ll be paired with a Wiser sponsor in the User Experience Design or Brand/Creative team, collaborating with other Wisers and fellow interns on cross-functional projects. We plan quarterly, and your mission will be mapped out with your sponsor in June - while still leaving plenty of room for you to contribute to your scope.

Here’s how you’ll be contributing:

  • You’ll get to know Wise customers, building empathy and deep understanding of their needs
  • You’ll be honing and flexing your craft skills in a collaborative environment
  • You’ll be connecting with your sponsor, fellow interns, and the broader User Experience Design community to inject fresh creative thinking into the business

Your takeaways: 

  • Meet with some of the most influential people at Wise on this programme
  • Contribute to the Wise mission in a collaborative, supportive environment
  • Be mentored by a discipline expert
  • Develop your craft and experiment in a live environment
  • Share back your work post internship with your programme
  • A competitive internship salary

About you: 

There are core behaviours we are looking for across all disciplines. You are:

  • A self starter, taking initiative and keeping relevant partners in the loop
  • Possess strong analytical, assessment and problem solving skills
  • Have the ability to contextualise and build a narrative around your work
  • Open to feedback, great at implementing it back into your work
  • Interested and familiar with technology and digital products


What you get back:


🚀 Experience working in one of the fastest growing European FinTechs
🏃‍♀️ Lots of team activities
💸 Salary £28,000 (pro-rata)
🙌 Fun offices with social activities – have a sneak peak of life in our London office!


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.
