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 Java Developer to join our mission and help us build a global platform that’s scalable, reliable and secure. We’re working on lots of algorithmical challenges, and you’ll dive right into projects on reconciliation, integrations, authorisations and authentications.

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
  • Great communication skills and the ability to articulate complex, technical concepts to non-technical audience
  • Experience working with relational and non-relational databases, query optimisation and designing schemas
  • You enjoy writing testable code and believe in Test Driven Development
  • You have solid Java 8 plus knowledge, experience with Spring framework and database abstraction layers like Hibernate
  • You believe in and follow best coding practices, code reviews and open feedback
  • Experience with CI/CD pipelines and Distributed and Concurrent Systems
  • Hands on knowledge of system integration patterns

What does success look like?

  • You’ll have onboarded and found your place through understanding your team and tribe vision and how you can contribute
  • You’ll understand how our values can help you guide your work
  • You’ll understand the reasons behind problematic payments and customer difficulties and how to go about solving them
  • You’ll be raising the automation level to enable scaling of the product
  • Understand our customers and the impact our product makes in their lives
  • You’ll help us scale-up and build a world class money transfer product by finding solutions to our technical challenges and opportunities
