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’re looking for a seasoned Front End Developer to join our mission and help provide our customers with the best experience possible.

What does it take?

  • A passion for technology, product and user experience
  • A broad understanding of the concept of MVP (minimum viable product) and conversion rates
  • The ability to work independently and plan your own solutions to problems
  • Thinking from the customer perspective and putting them at the heart of everything you do as you’ll guide them from their first experience on our landing page to completing a transfer and making sure they’re informed every step of the way.

Is that you?

  • You’re passionate about product and user experience – customers are at the heart of what you do and that empathy drives your decisions
  • Great communication skills and the ability to articulate complex, technical concepts to non-technical audience
  • Experience building Front End apps that delight users
  • You have expert knowledge of JavaScript and how it interacts with the DOM
  • You feel comfortable with modern front-end frameworks and tools – React, Redux, Webpack and the like.
  • The desire for creating clean, testable code
  • You have a strong sense of good UX and design
  • …but don’t worry we don’t expect you to know everything!

Tribe you’ll be working in: Receive & Business Onboarding:

In the Receive & Business Onboarding tribe, we are working on making it easy, fast and cheap for people and businesses to receive money internationally. We own a wide range of components from the payin platform that powers all the money movement into Wise’s engine, to local account details that enable customers to receive like a local. As a fast growing area, we’re working on adding new products and making our receive ecosystem even more robust in the future.

What the first six months in this role will look like:

  • You’ll have onboarded and found your place through understanding your team and guild vision and how you can contribute
  • Understanding the Fintech domain and our tech culture
  • You’ll have fully developed new features, from planning to release, and keep monitoring their adoption once live
  • Gone through two quarterly plannings and proposed ideas to take your product further

What you get back:

  • Stock options in a growing company
  • An annual self-development budget
  • Daily free breakfast, weekly lunch and lots of snacks
  • Pet friendly offices
  • Lots of fun group activities like yoga, running and boardgame nights
  • Relocation and visa expenses covered
  • An annual, all-expenses-paid company trip, Summer Days 
  • A paid 6-week sabbatical leave after four years

  • 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.
