For too long, we've been overcharged and underserved by the masters of our money. On every continent, people are cornered by a system built by big banks and old financial institutions to serve their own interests. The house always wins and you don't even know how.



And for people moving money across borders, they've simply had no option but to pay the price.

Not fair.

We power money for people and businesses — for sending, spending and receiving currencies, wherever, whenever. We're building a fair financial system, built for global lives.

Senior Android Developer at TransferWise

Senior Android Developer

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.

 

What it’s really like to work here

 

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.

 

What will you be working on:

We’re looking for a seasoned Android developer to join our mobile team. You’ll be a self-starter with the ability to take on a range of hard and intriguing challenges.

Company Reviews

I love that Transferwise trusts in my ability to think critically about our product. The company gives me the autonomy analyze how to make the biggest possible impact, and then empowers me towards implementing the features that address my team's product hypotheses. This is the hands down the best product engineering role around; it will never be dull.
