For our customers, using TransferWise is as simple as sending money from A to B. Yet behind our app and website is a complex engine of currencies and routes, generating terabytes of data each day.

Your mission and role will be building and maintaining a cost efficient and scalable machine learning platform, that is convenient to use and that provides a good engineering and data science experience. Your input will directly affect how TransferWise is making decisions and predictions on billions of events.
