This role will give you the opportunity to:

🧭 Choose your path to impact – we believe people are most empowered when they can act autonomously. So rather than telling you what to do, you’ll work with your team to create a vision of your own. Of course, you can always gather feedback from smart, curious people across Wise but you’ll have the freedom to make your own calls

🏡 Be flexible in how and where you work, we understand everyone needs a little something different so we’ll do our best to make it happen

🗺 Travel (when things get back to a new normal) to work with our teams in Asia and Europe as well as meet various partners and organizations when needed

💡 Inspire teams with your ideas, knowledge and self-starting attitude


What does it take?:  

  • You approach your work with a strong product mindset and passion for user experience, you prioritise work with the customers in mind and  make data-driven decisions to fix customer pain-points
  • You have great communication skills and can articulate complex, technical concepts to non-technical audience
  • You enjoy writing testable code and believe in Test Driven Development
  • You believe in and follow best coding practices, code reviews and open feedback
  • You provide technical guidance and mentorship to junior and mid-level developers 
  • You have solid Java 13 plus knowledge and experience with Spring framework
  • You have front end experience with one of JavaScript frameworks like React, Angular, or other
  • You have experience working with relational and non-relational databases, query optimisation and designing schema
  • You are familiar with Continuous Delivery Approach mindset

…but don’t worry we don’t expect you to know everything!

Some extra skills that would be great:

  • You have solid Java 13 plus knowledge and experience with Spring framework
  • You have experience with financial systems
  • You have knowledge of PostgreSQL, advanced types and query features
  • You know your way around event driven architecture
  • You have some Groovy experience
  • Perhaps you have experience with machine learning or other data driven development experience 

What the first six months in this role will look like:

  • You’ll have onboarded and found your place through understanding your team and tribe vision and how you can contribute
  • Understanding the Wise domain (Fintech) and team specific domain (the problems they’re solving form, intricacies of the domains) (50+ eng teams, all have different domain specific topics, they’re grouped in tribes e.g. Crime Fighting (Fraud, AML), but they’re very different)
  • Understanding tech culture: how we build stuff, specific details on the tech stack (in our autonomous teams, teams do lots of different things and work on different stacks so need to understand details)
  • You’ll have deployed / gone through the entire lifecycle of a microservice on your own
  • Gone through two quarterly plannings and proposed a few ideas to take your product further
