At TransferWise, ideas emerge from collective brainpower. People are organised in autonomous teams within which we talk through projects, but we use Slack, email, and Google surveys for opinions!
Trainings and workshops
We work in autonomous teams. We give a lot of trust to our teams and they need to be comfortable with that freedom. It’s not just about coming up with bold ideas, it’s about delivering them.

Why we love our office
The Budapest Office has just moved to the busy 13th district close to the Danube. It’s a city of stunning architecture and unrivalled hospitality, and now it’s the newest home to our customer support and engineering teams. Our office is spacious and light aligning with our core value, transparency. We like to show our attitude, too - the new wall decoration says THIS IS A REVOLUTION!
Personal qualities we appreciate
If you’re keen to collaborate, learn, grow, try new things and aren’t afraid of a bold plan, you’ll fit right in.
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.
