People in TransferWise are some of the smartest and nicest people you’ll meet. There’s people here from over 50 nationalities, from companies like Google, AirBnB and Paypal. Expect to learn more here than any book can ever teach.
And what do we offer? Apart from the all-expenses-paid company trips, stock options in one of Europe’s most hotly tipped startups, a laptop and team lunches every day, you won’t get much in the way of extras. However, we will give you 25 days holiday a year (plus public holidays), a fun, friendly atmosphere, plenty of opportunities to grow and the chance to be part of our little revolution. Oh, and coffee, there’s plenty of coffee.
Here at TransferWise we don’t hire coders, who pick up tickets from a backlog and push code to production.
We hire engineers that empathise with our customers problems, develop solutions and measure results. We’re proud of engineering team — it’s built an incredible product that’s changing the world. They operate autonomously within their teams, focussing relentlessly on our customers.
TransferWise was founded in 2011 with a clear mission: Money without borders — so people and businesses can send and receive any currency effortlessly, whenever, wherever.
Sure, the heart of what we do is international money transfer. And we’re committed to making it instant, convenient and fair for millions of people, all over the world. But we’re growing our other products and our teams at an exciting pace. And we’re looking for the very best to jump on board.
How do 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.
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.
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...
Which means that as an Engineering Intern, you will be fully responsible for finding problems and creating products that solve those problems and help a lot of people in a very meaningful way. But you’ll get of course, tons of guidance and plenty of support along the way from talented, super-smart colleagues from all over TransferWise.
