Be without borders
Who we are
TransferWise was founded in 2011 with a clear mission:
Money without borders - instant, convenient, fair and eventually free.
We built TransferWise cause it solves a problem for hundreds of millions of people. It puts the way money moves back into the hands of ordinary people. We power money for people & businesses - sending, spending and getting paid in any currency, wherever, whenever.
It should be low-cost and fair.- here's only one fair exchange rate, and that's the one you get on TransferWise.
It should be easy.- sending money should be stress-free — no matter how far it’s traveling.
It should be fast.- we believe that sending money should be as fast as sending an email.
What would I miss if I left?
“I get to work with some of the smartest people. Not only in Europe, but also on this whole planet.”

MORE ON THE JOB
At TransferWise we work in self-sufficient, autonomous teams. Think of them like start-ups within a start-up that learn from each other.
Teams pick the problems they want to solve. There’s no micro-management. No hiding behind fancy job titles. And no one telling you what to do. You're your own boss. But you’ll get tons of guidance & plenty support from talented, super-smart colleagues.
Currently our Business & Fraud Prevention engineering teams are on the hunt for awesome full stack developers.
What we stand for
- Customers > Team > Ego
- No Drama, Good Karma
- Not Just a Job
- We get it done
