We’re making a positive, irreversible change in the world of finance. Together.

Treasury Finance Controller – Tallinn

Since 2011, we’ve had a clear mission: Money without Borders. Built by and for people who live global lives, we’re the fairest, easiest way to manage your money across borders.

Today, customers have paid over £1 billion into their borderless accounts and are saving themselves £60 million every month in bank fees. Yet we’re moving less than 1% of the world’s money. There’s still lots to do but we can’t do it alone!

So, what's the job?

We’re on the hunt for a product-minded controller to join our Treasury team in Tallinn. The Treasury team makes sure money moves quickly to wherever our customers need it, and managing the risk of currency rate fluctuations allowing us to offer customers fast transfers and the real mid-market rate.

You’ll be focused on ensuring efficient controls and reporting of the Treasury actions - understanding what drives our results, and implementing processes to communicate our results and risks to stakeholders. Your work will be instrumental in improving our product, making an impact on our customers' lives, and moving us closer to our mission.

You will:

  • Help maintain the engine within the TransferWise rocket ship. Treasury control capabilities are essential to steer us in the right direction and comply with financial, regulatory and risk requirements in all our jurisdictions around the world.
  • Use this deep knowledge to help build a narrative on our results and manage communications and reporting to various stakeholders: internally to TransferWise business units, our leadership team, and externally to investors and debt holders.
  • Work closely with other teams like Finance and the Risk Committee to build accurate reporting automatically from the source systems and share information.
  • Drive impact by giving the rest of the team accurate data, timely results and meaningful insights and provide them with the tools they need.
  • Work with Treasury developers to ensure our systems and calculations are robust.

We're a global team, so do expect a lot of video-calls and some international travel around 8 times a year to offices like London and Singapore. 

A bit about you:

You're a great team player who is passionate about transforming the financial industry for good and improving the lives of customers. You're comfortable making considered but firm decisions when there’s no right answer, and taking ownership for your decisions and your work. You'll have:

  • Prior experience in either financial controlling, FP&A, financial audit, financial advisory or management accounting.
  • Built financial reports / models for businesses like ours.
  • Dealt with internal or external stakeholders on a regular basis, communicating reports, requirements etc.
  • A good understanding of accounting principles.
  • An ability to move beyond Excel and dig into raw data, you're not afraid of SQL.

Bonus points for:

  • Experience working with trading data (FX, Fixed income, etc).
  • Understanding of risk management frameworks.
  • Knowledge of IFRS and GAAP.

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.
