At Wise, we’ve got a clear mission — money without borders. Enabling everyone to move their money across the world instantly, transparently, conveniently and eventually for free.

Due to our rapid growth we’re looking for a Finance and Growth Analyst to join our Corporate Finance team, part of the broader FP&A team. Joining this team you will play an important role in generating and delivering insights on our performance and communicating these to senior stakeholders and externally to our investors.

The role

You’ll need to:

  • Build a solid understanding of the relationships between the behaviour of our customers and our growth drivers through data analysis and modelling.
  • Create data driven stories explaining our growth that will be shared internally with stakeholders and externally to our investors.
  • Own the delivery of insights — weekly/month/quarterly performance dashboards and decks that tell our growth story.
  • Build and maintain financial models using inputs from across the FP&A function (Growth, Pricing and Budgeting) to build a cohesive view of our business
  • Be an important part of quarterly planning sessions, helping set a strategy and vision for how our team can have more impact.

The experience you’ll need

  • You’ll have several years’ experience in finance/data analysis preferably in banking, consultancy or in a high growth tech finance team.
  • You are naturally curious about what makes a business tick and have a high degree of business acumen.
  • You have experience with complex data analysis, you generated and delivered insights and narratives, built and owned dashboards and visualizations.
  • You’ve got very strong SQL skills and can tell stories using data to cut through complexity and communicate insights in a clear and simple manner
  • You can work with minimal direction and are comfortable in a cross-functional, fast-paced environment.

Bonus points

Prior experience with Looker and Google Sheets.

Some important stuff we would like you to know

To meet our regulatory obligations as a licensed financial services company, Wise needs to take background checks on all new hires, whose roles in the Finance team include Criminal and Credit checks. Please discuss with the Recruiter if you have any concerns regarding this process.

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, where and what you studied isn’t important to us. If you’ve got great experience, the right skills for the role and you’re great at articulating your thinking, we’d like to hear from you.
