Our Regional Expansion teams are working across our global offices, taking our Wise products to market around the world. Most of our platform teams are based in London, Singapore and Tallinn.

  • Work with our various regional expansion teams to scale volumes by supporting new regions and use cases.
  • Design the next evolution of our systems, moving money more transparently, at lower cost and satisfying more use cases.
  • Move faster by streamlining complexity and rationalising trade-offs - ultimately improving our time to market by reducing engineering effort required to release features across all platforms
  • Prioritise between scale challenges, risk mitigation and new impactful improvements to the system for consumers and businesses.

This role will give you the opportunity to:

A bit about Wise:

We’re a global tech company with a big mission and a start up heart.

We like to think we’re the perfect mix of big and small. Big enough to solve problems for millions of customers but small enough to still be growing at the speed of light. Big enough to flip an industry on its head but still small enough to have a long way to go. 

What’s in it for you?

We’re focused on one mission: money without borders. And, because we’re still growing, you can get close to customers and really understand the challenges we need to solve.

Our people are the most intelligent, curious people in the business and we’re big enough to attract them. But we’re still small enough for individuals to matter and thrive.We won’t stop until everyone can send, spend and receive money wherever they are, in any currency.

We’re people without borders — without judgement or prejudice, too. We want to work with the best people, no matter their background. So if you’re passionate about learning new things and keen to join our mission, you’ll fit right in.

Also, qualifications aren’t that important to us. If you’ve got great experience, and you’re great at articulating your thinking, we’d like to hear from you.

And because we believe that diverse teams build better products, we’d especially love to hear from you if you’re from an under-represented demographic.
