Software Engineer - Internal Tools

Who we are

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.

Product engineers only

Here at TransferWise we don’t hire coders, who pick up tickets from a backlog and push code to production without considering value and impact.

What you will be working on:
You’ll be building scalable products to support the continuous growth of the organisation. Many internal processes can be automated or improved by building bridges between internal and external tools and building new tools.

You’ll be heavily involved with all kinds of API’s and will design and build your own. You’ll be sitting together with our internal customers and make the optimal choice between build versus integrate.

Must have:

  • Excellent JVM and Spring Boot knowledge while knowledge of PHP will be appreciated as it currently powers the applications that are not extracted into Microservices.
  • Good SQL and database knowledge. And you know how to use JdbcTemplate.
  • You know how to Integrate REST APIs with single-page apps and secure them.
  • Understanding of the concept of minimum viable product.
  • Passionate about technology, product and user experience.
  • You constantly think about security, risks, data integrity, and bulletproof processes.
  • Ability to work independently and plan your own solutions to problems.

Nice to have:

  • You have experience with interpreted languages like PHP or Python.
  • You have built systems using cloud infrastructure like AWS, GCP or Azure.
  • You have written roles and playbooks for Ansible.
  • You have some experience with front-end frameworks like React
  • Be a customer of TransferWise


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 other Thursday, you won’t get much in the way of extras. However, we will give you 28 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.

Not from Estonia? - No stress, we will help you (and your family) to relocate from any part of the world!
