TransferWise is one the fastest growing companies in Europe and we’re on a mission: to make money without borders the new normal. We’ve got 8 million customers across the globe and we’re growing. Fast.


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.


And, we’re looking for a seasoned Front End developer to join our mission and help provide our customers with the best experience possible.


What does it take?

  • passion for technology, product and user experience
  • A broad understanding of the concept of MVP (minimum viable product) and conversion rates
  • The ability to work independently and plan your own solutions to problems
  • Thinking from the customer perspective and putting them at the heart of everything you do as you’ll guide them from their first experience on our landing page to completing a transfer and making sure they’re informed every step of the way.



Is that you?

  • You’re passionate about product and user experience – customers are at the heart of what you do and that empathy drives your decisions
  • Great communication skills and the ability to articulate complex, technical concepts to non-technical audience
  • Experience building Front End apps that delight users
  • You have expert knowledge of JavaScript and how it interacts with the DOM
  •  You feel comfortable with modern front-end frameworks and tools – React, Redux, Webpack and the like.
  • The desire for creating cleantestable code
  • You have a strong sense of good UX and design


…but don’t worry we don’t expect you to know everything!



What the first six months in this role will look like:

  • You’ll have onboarded and found your place through understanding your team and guild vision and how you can contribute
  • Understanding the Fintech domain and our tech culture
  • You’ll have fully developed new features, from planning to release, and keep monitoring their adoption once live
  • Gone through two quarterly plannings and proposed ideas to take your product further


What you get back:

  • The autonomy to solve problems your way
  • The freedom to have real impact
  • Loads of development opportunities
  • fun work environment with social activities and events
