We’re looking for Software Engineering Intern to join our growing team in Cherkasy. The role is a unique opportunity to jumpstart your career as an engineer with a product mindset who will help millions of customers save money by using TransferWise. You will be taking on smaller projects or parts of a larger project and collaborating with other engineers, designers and product owners in the team to get input on implementation details and decisions. With more time in this role, you’ll understand the why and what behind the feature v/s just the how to get something live and will get more independent in shipping features
During the internship you will have your own mentor to help you learn and develop professionally and a buddy who will introduce you to Transferwise team, culture, events and activities.
You will receive a competitive salary package with benefits!
This role will give you the opportunity to:
Gain valuable experience by working on challenges and getting involved as a valued team member. You’re not JUST an intern at TransferWise, you get to make a real impact with the work you do
Work on a real project. We can’t say what project yet, but there are always projects that you’re able to get involved in and your internship will be centred around this
Broaden your professional network. There are a LOT of experienced people here at TransferWise who are keen to share their experiences and knowledge with you and are keen to learn from you and get your perspective on things too
Potentially secure a permanent job depending on your performance and availability internally. There may be an opportunity to stay working with us part time or to secure a permanent job once you graduated
Work within one of our feature teams who look at specific areas of TransferWise (e.g. Borderless accounts, our payment cards, the transfer experience) to figure out how best to improve our product for our customers through new features and capabilities that will be used globally
Help us to further integrate with a variety of financial partners and providers around the world to so that more customers can send money across borders, with minimum fuss and maximum confidence
As we grow our users and transaction volumes to reach new markets, our architecture needs to grow too. You’ll help us to make TransferWise faster, more convenient and scalable
How we work:
At TransferWise, we do things a bit differently. There’s no corporate nonsense and no old-fashioned hierarchy. Instead, we work in dozens of self-sufficient, autonomous teams. Think of them like start-ups within a start-up that learn from each other
Each team picks the problems they want to solve. So there’s no micro-management. No hiding behind fancy job titles. And no one telling you what to do. You are your own boss. But you’ll get tons of guidance and plenty of support from talented, super-smart colleagues from all over TransferWise.
We’re going to be upfront — the way we work doesn’t suit everyone. But if freedom, autonomy, and life-affirming, head-scratching professional challenges rock your world, we could be a match made in heaven.
The team follows Agile methodologies to approach and solve customers’ problems via
development of impactful functions, automate processes and measure results. We are moving fast and sometimes break things, but we learn from mistakes without blame or drama.
You’ll work together with teams in Tallinn, Budapest, London, New York, Singapore, etc.
