Wise is 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 an Android Developer to join our mission and help provide our customers with the best mobile experience possible.

The Wise card is a key part of the borderless proposition, it is responsible for the “spend” part of the general vision. Card issuing is the best way to let customers spend their money in the modern world, but we should keep in mind that real plastic cards are only one of a possible solution to spending problems. Tomorrow it could be virtual cards, apple and google pays, QR codes, mobile payments, or something else that is not yet invented. Our mission statement for the Spend & Wise tribe is: Give our customers reliable, easy to use and eventually free way to pay from borderless accounts everywhere in the world.

  • A passion for technology, product and user experience
  • Familiarity with Continuous Delivery approach

  • The desire for creating clean, testable code
  • Practical experience of SOLID principles and when and how to apply them
  • Experience working with a version control system like git
  • Strong understanding of REST API Design

  • …but don’t worry we don’t expect you to know everything!
