Wise (formerly TransferWise) was founded in 2011 with a clear mission – money without borders — so people and businesses can send, spend and get paid in any currency effortlessly, whenever, wherever.

In 2011 we launched a money transfer service enabling customers to send money around the world with the real exchange rate and without the crazy bank fees. In 2017 we launched our multi-currency account and debit card in Europe. With this account, people and businesses manage all their currencies in a single account, pay and get paid around the world with the real exchange rate and the low, transparent fees Wise is known for.

Now, 10 years on, over 10 million customers have trusted us to manage their money and we move over £5 billion around the world every single month.

We’re building a world-class product marketing team to own the launch and adoption of Wise products across global markets and we’re looking for a stand-out Product Marketing Manager for Europe to join the team in London, Tallinn or Budapest.

The  Europe PMM will know our Europe customers inside out, with a focus on Germany and France. They’ll deeply understand their needs, pain points, and use cases. They’ll test and iterate on our messaging to figure out what resonates most effectively with our key customer segments, and help marketing channel owners optimise on targeting, messaging, and segmentation. They’ll own localised messaging across owned channels for lifecycle marketing and cross-sell, to email make sure all Wise customers in Europe understand and use all our products to the best advantage for their use case.

The Europe PMM will own the go-to-market strategy for new products launching across Europe. They’ll be embedded in the Europe product team, working on discovery initiatives to drive growth and directly influence the product roadmap. They’ll be responsible for launching new products to customers throughout the region, and run campaigns and experiments on landing pages, owned channels and in-product to drive adoption of existing products to new and existing customers.

We’re looking for candidates with experience in the French and/or German markets to push boundaries, drive growth, and help us build the vision for growth in Europe. For the right person it’s a career-defining opportunity to launch and grow some of the most exciting fintech products in Europe, and solve challenging customer problems for people with multi-currency needs.

Specifically the Europe PMM will:

  • Develop the value proposition, messaging frameworks and positioning for products in our primary European markets — Germany and France, as well as Spain, Italy, Switzerland and the Nordic countries

  • Run scalable product marketing tests in-product and on owned channels to drive cross-sell
  • Partner with PMs, and UX Research on Discovery to influence product roadmap

  • Work closely with marketing channel owners to optimise campaigns and unlock growth from new customer segments
  • Maintain and communicate product release roadmap with wider company

  • You have strong analytical skills, have experience with Looker / Tableau or other data analytics tools, bonus if you can write SQL
  • You’re a self-starter with natural drive to get things done and work cross-team
