Very open feedback culture


At TransferWise we work in self-sufficient, autonomous teams. Think of them like start-ups within a start-up that learn from each other.

Each team picks 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 of support from talented, super-smart colleagues.

Currently our Payments Processing, Business & Fraud teams are on the hunt for some awesome engineers.
