Wise 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 10 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 need a talented Engineering Lead to join our mission.
For a fast growing organisation like Wise, a shared and consistent design system is a must. The design systems team enables our product teams to iterate faster, building higher quality and more consistent user experiences. We have a pretty big (and growing) cross-functional team of 10, and a cast of regular contributors. We’re a fully front-end team, split between web, iOS, Android and design.
As the Engineering Lead, you’re responsible for working closely with the team and the Design Lead to set and execute on the technical vision for the design system. Our team doesn’t have a Product Manager, so you will also work with the Design Lead to set the vision for the design system as a whole. In this respect you will have lots of autonomy and influence on what the team works on.
You can expect to split your time between leading the team (1:1s, planning), tech leadership (reviewing PRs or RFCs, helping team debug issues) and general design system strategy (working with the Design Lead). While this is likely to keep you relatively busy, you will still have a chance to get your hands dirty and code ~ 20% of the time.
Nice to haves (but not essentials!):
…but don’t worry we don’t expect you to know everything! If you’re interested, we’d love to hear from you.

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.
