Website Wise

We’re people without borders. Building money without borders.

Wise is one of the fastest growing companies in Europe. 

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.

We’re on a mission: to make money without borders the new norm. We’ve got 13 million customers across the globe and we’re growing. Fast.

We’re building a scalable, high performing platform for our customers. And we’re looking for Software Engineering Graduates to join us on our mission.

At Wise you’ll work on challenging technical problems across the full product life-cycle and you’ll build great products for our customers by contributing data-driven analysis and insights.

How you’ll contribute to our Engineering team: 
Help take Wise to the next level as we scale to impact 100’s of millions more customers
You’ll help build seamless experiences for our customers
Work on the core flow of Wise. Guide our customers from their first experience on our landing page, to completing a transfer. You’ll help make sure they’re informed every step of the way
Create clear and helpful interfaces, whilst maintaining consistency, maintainability and performance
Understand the challenges our customers face and set out to solve them
This role will give you the opportunity to:
Choose your path to impact. We believe people do great things when they can act autonomously. So, instead of being told what to do, you’ll work with your team to create a vision of your own. You can always gather feedback from smart, curious people across Wise, but you’ll have the freedom to make your own calls
Be flexible in how and where you work. We understand everyone needs a little something different – so we’ll do our best to make it happen
Travel to work with our teams in different locations. You’ll also meet various partners and organisations when needed
Inspire teams with your ideas, knowledge and self-starting attitude 
What does it take? These things are a must:

You are a final year student studying a Bachelors or Masters degree. This might be in Computer Science (or any other STEM subject)
You are able to start a full time graduate job on the 4th of September 2023
Knowledge of computer science fundamentals including data structures, algorithms and software design
A self-started side project(s) that you are proud to talk about
Great communication skills and the ability to articulate complex, technical concepts to a non-technical audience
Curious, keen to learn and proactive by nature
A strong product mindset and passion for user experience. You prioritise work with customers in mind, and make data-driven decisions to fix customer pain-points
You believe in and follow best coding practices and code reviews
You are open to and value feedback in order to improve
Familiarity of data models with SQL
Knowledge of working with RESTful Web Services
A basic knowledge in modern web technologies and a strong interest in web development
Eligible to work in the UK
And these would be great, but aren’t essential:

Experience in web development, from a previous internship 
Familiarity with any major programming languages like Java/JavaScript/Kotlin/Swift (we are more focussed on your willingness to learn new technologies)
…Don’t worry we don’t expect you to know everything!

In your first 6 months:
You’ll onboard and spend some time understanding your team and tribe’s vision. Once you know this, you’ll better understand how you can contribute
Understand the Wise domain
Understand the problems your team are solving
Understand how engineering works at Wise and what each team and tribe does. From Fraud to Anti Money Laundering teams – there are lots! Don’t worry, we’ll help you get acquainted
Understand the tech culture, the detail of the tech stack and how we build stuff. We work in autonomous teams, on different stacks so you’ll need to understand the details
You’ll get to go through the entire lifecycle of a microservice on your own
We’re big on planning. You’ll go through two quarterly plan cycles and get to propose your own ideas to take your product further
What you get back:
🚀 Experience working in one of the fastest growing European FinTechs
🏃‍♀️ Lots of team activities
💸 Salary from £45,000
📈 Solve real customer problems with data
🙌Fun offices with social activities – have a sneak peak of our London office!
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.

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.
