A bit about TransferWise:

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.
