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

Senior Data Analyst - Verification – Tallinn or Budapest

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 heaps to do and we can’t do it alone.

So, what's the job?

We’re on the hunt for a product-minded analyst to join our Verification team in Tallinn/Budapest. You'll be part of the team that runs the KYC engine of the company - making sure money moves quickly to wherever our customers need it, and managing the compliance risk of customer onboarding and lifetime journey - allowing us to offer customers fast and convenient transfers.

You’ll be focussed on understanding the Compliance risks with Risk Based Approach, how to make sure we verify customers using convenient means like personal doc automations providers, ML tools and building better process for our Operations.

Our team is currently 20 people strong and contains a mix of roles (Operational, Product, Analytics, Engineering, and Compliance) - whatever it takes to get the job done.


  • Own the problem of Compliance risks fluctuations: understand our customers’ behaviour, figure out how to minimise costs, and work with our diverse team to get those ideas up-and-running
  • Focus particularly on automation: model the impact of various scenarios, and pick the best to implement
  • Develop and run our vital Verification scaling report
  • Drive impact by giving the rest of the team ownership - ensure Operations and Compliance are focussing on the right projects, and provide them with the tools they need
  • Educate other teams around TransferWise in how to manage Risks and Automated solutions for customer identity
  • Work with developers to ensure our systems and calculations are robust

Our team is spread across 2 offices, so do expect a lot of video-calls and some travel. Your work will be instrumental in improving our product, making an impact on our customers' lives, and moving us closer to our mission.

  • Collaborative - you work well in a team environment, and know how to have an impact through others

  • A wider analytical toolbox, especially experience with Python, Looker, or R
  • Machine learning, scenario modelling or other statistical modelling experience
  • Experience of software development or product management

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.
