Mobile Developer - Android – Tallinn

We’re looking for an Android Engineer to join our growing team in Tallinn, Estonia. The role is a unique opportunity to join one of the fastest growing companies in Europe and help millions more potential customers save money by using TransferWise. You’ll be based in the team who built and launched our Borderless accounts, a product that is now processing over 2 million transactions and has taken over £2bn in deposits, in 6 months.

You’ll receive a competitive package including generous stock options and private healthcare amongst other benefits.

Your mission:

  • Help us build a world-class card product for our Android users. From the moment they sign-up, to their first transaction, you’ll give customers the kind of experience they want to tweet about!
  • Design the API and services that power the app. Working closely with our Customer Support team, Analysts and Designers to figure out the best opportunities for our app and overall product
  • Put our customers at the heart of everything you do, using empathy to drive your decisions

The 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
  • Share your expertise and collaborate with our Android community: as part of our relatively small Android community (around 20 people) you’ll share your ideas in our daily architectural discussions and take thoughts and feedback from your colleagues on how we can improve the app
  • 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, Budapest and Singapore

A bit about you:

You’re a product engineer who wants to do more than just support an existing system or pick up tickets from backlog and push code into production without considering value and impact. You want to help take TransferWise to the next level and scale our product to impact 100’s of millions more 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 reply with your request to the email we send you after you have applied. 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.
