We’re looking for a Backend Java Developer to join our Global Conversion Team in Tallinn. The role is a unique opportunity to help in making our customer journey from start to finish a seaming less experience.

You’ll receive a competitive package within the range of 28K-74K annually depending on your level of experience  and generous stock options.

Your mission:

As part of the Global Conversion Team you will be adding and improving features that define the core of TransferWise and will be used globally across different markets, making TransferWise products more convenient, faster and scalable.

This role will give you the opportunity to:

  • 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 with our teams in London and Budapest as well as meet various partners and organizations when needed
  • Inspire teams with your ideas, knowledge and self-starting attitude

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 solid Java 8 knowledge and hands-on experience
  • You have high coding standards (TDD, Clean Code)
  • You have solid knowledge of Javascript and libraries like React, Angular, LESS and SASS.
  • You know your way around dependencies, have experience in performance tuning and have used DB abstraction layers like Hibernate or messaging services (Apache Kafka, RabbitMQ, JMS)

  • You like writing automated tests for your code.

Some extra skills that would be awesome: 

  • You know your way around event driven architecture

  • You have a customer-focused approach to product development, putting the customer first when making decisions.

Some of your benefits: 

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 irreversible change in how money moves across the world.

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

We’re just at the beginning of our story and we’re growing at an incredible pace. We won’t stop until anyone, anywhere can send, spend and receive money wherever they are, whatever they’re doing. There’s still heaps to do and we can’t do it alone.

Our People:

At TransferWise, you’ll be joining a movement of people who believe in a better, fairer, more transparent way of moving money around the world. You’ll collaborate to do your best work and take on problems that no one has looked at before.

You’ll experience radical levels of ownership and empowerment within your role. Plus the opportunity to see the direct impact of your work on our customers.

Some important stuff we would like you to know

To meet our regulatory obligations as a licensed financial services company, TransferWise needs to take background checks on all new hires, which may include Criminal and Credit checks. Please discuss with the Recruiter if you have any concerns regarding this process.

At TransferWise we believe in fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace. Therefore, we want to make sure that our recruitment process is accessible to everyone. So if you need any reasonable adjustments – at any point in the process – we’ll do our best to help. Just let us know what you need on your application form, or drop us an email at adjustments@transferwise.com. You might need a reasonable adjustment if you’ve got a disability. Or maybe you live overseas, and you’d prefer to meet us over Skype.

Please don’t send anything to the adjustments address if you’re a recruiter, or if you’re making a speculative application. We do work with recruiters from time to time – but only through LinkedIn. And we only accept job applications when a position is actually open. So you’re better off just checking the recruitment pages regularly.
