NYC tip #528 There’s a Brooklyn beyond Williamsburg.

Money transfer tip #2 There’s a better exchange rate beyond your bank.

Career tip #6 Join TransferWise to help build money without borders.

Seen any of our top tips on the Subway recently? It’s all part of our campaign to help more US customers save money using TransferWise. So far, we’ve saved over 3 million customers more than $10 billion in bank fees so far. Yet we’re moving less than 1% of the world’s money. There’s still heaps to do and we can’t do it alone.

Your mission:

* Help us help to scale our product to impact millions more customers
* Take ownership of the entire TransferWise user experience for our U.S. customers, helping to make their international transfers faster, easier and cheaper (this covers: banking; payment processing; verification; compliance and marketing
* Integrate payment methods and partners, creating a scalable and automated payments engine
* Understand our customers and the impact our product is making (through data analysis and user research) to drive our team and product roadmap

This role will give you the opportunity to:

* Develop your expertise in the fast-growing FinTech market in the US working alongside our CTO and growing engineering team based in the Flatiron district
* Choose your own path to success - you’ll have the freedom to define the vision and the responsibility for making it happen
* 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 to work and learn with our dev teams in London, Tallinn, Budapest, Singapore and more

A bit about you:

* You’ll be passionate about product and user experience - customers are at the heart of what you do and that empathy drives your decisions
* You’ll have used a back-end MVC Framework, Java/Spring Boot preferred
* You’ll have experience with HTML, CSS and JavaScript
* You’ll have previously developed a modern front-end framework. Angular.js is preferred, but experience with Backbone, Ember, Knockout or React is also relevant
* You’ll have experience working with SQL databases, writing custom queries and designing schemas
* You’ll have an understanding of test-driven development (TDD) and have the desire to write tests
* You’ll be familiar with Continuous Delivery approach mindset

Some extra skills that would be awesome:

* You’ll have experience with commercial software development and may have built modular scalable systems
* You might have used database abstraction layers like Hibernate or messaging services (Apache Kafka, RabbitMQ, JMS etc)
* You have knowledge of payment platforms, foreign exchange and highly complex systems
* You have a broad understanding of the concept of minimum viable product (MVP)
