We’re only able to offer visa sponsorship for this role if you are currently residing in Singapore. With prevailing restrictions on global travel due to Covid-19, we’re not able to relocate any new joiners over the next few months. We encourage you to sign up for our job alerts to keep an eye on new roles posted as we’re hoping the situation will change soon.* 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 Senior Front End Developer to join our mission and help provide our customers with the best experience possible when things don’t go smoothly. In this role, you’ll get to work on challenging technical problems across the full product life-cycle. You’ll be building complex systems that streamline problem solving that requires manual intervention.

How you’ll be contributing to our Engineering team:

  • Help us take Wise to the next level as we scale to impact 100’s of millions more customers. You’ll hide away all the complexities under the hood of our product and build seamless experiences for our customers.
  • Working on the core flow of Wise, you’ll help our customers in the time when things don’t go right by enabling internal operations teams to provide help swiftly.
  • Create clear and helpful interfaces, whilst maintaining consistency, maintainability, performance and an understanding of what problems our customers might encounter along the way and how they can be solved.
  • Contribute to the best practice guidelines with the goal of maintaining consistency, maintainability, performance and an understanding of what problems our customers might encounter along the way

This role will give you the opportunity to:

  • Choose your path to impact – we believe people are most empowered when they can act autonomously. So rather than telling you what to do, you’ll work with your team to create a vision of your own. Of course, you can always gather feedback from smart, curious people across Wise, but you’ll have the freedom to make your own calls.
  • Be flexible in how and where you work, we understands everyone needs a little something different so we’ll do our best to make it happen
  • Travel (when things go back to normal) to work with our teams in London, Budapest and Tallinn.
  • Inspire teams with your ideas, knowledge and self-starting attitude

What does it take?:

  • A strong product mindset and passion for user experience, you prioritise work with the customers in mind and  make data-driven decisions to fix customer pain-points
  • Experience designing, building and maintaining complex frontend applications from scratch.
  • Great communication skills and the ability to articulate complex, technical concepts to non-technical audience
  • You enjoy writing testable code and believe in Test Driven Development
  • Front end experience with one of JavaScript frameworks like React, Angular, or other
  • 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.
  • You believe in and follow best coding practices, code reviews and open feedback
  • You’re familiar with Continuous Delivery Approach mindset
  • …but don’t worry we don’t expect you to know everything!

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

  • You’ll have onboarded and found your place through understanding your team and tribe vision and how you can contribute
  • Understanding the Wise domain (Fintech) and team specific domain (the problems they’re solving form, intricacies of the domains) (50+ eng teams, all have different domain specific topics, they’re grouped in tribes e.g. Crime Fighting (Fraud, AML), but they’re very different)
  • Understanding tech culture: how we build stuff, specific details on the tech stack (in our autonomous teams, teams do lots of different things and work on different stacks so need to understand details)
  • You’ll have deployed / gone through the entire lifecycle of a microservice on your own
  • Gone through two quarterly plannings and proposed a few ideas to take your product further

  • 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.
