Front End Developer – London

What it’s like here

At TransferWise, each team picks the problems they want to solve. So there’s no corporate nonsense. And no one telling you what to do. But don’t get us wrong, you will get tons of guidance from talented colleagues all over TransferWise. If freedom, disrupting the status quo, and head-scratching challenges rock your world, we could be a match made in heaven.

What you’ll be working on

TransferWise is complex under the hood, with more and more capabilities built every day.

Your job will be to hide away all the complexity and build beautifully simple experiences that guide our users through TransferWise. You’ll help to create clear and helpful interfaces, whilst keeping consistency, maintainability, performance, and, most importantly, the underlying problems, in mind.

In the Global Conversion team, you’ll be working on the core flow of TransferWise, guiding our customers from the landing page to the end of a successful transfer. You’ll be improving the product that got us the first 1 million customers, and help us get to 10 million, 100 million, and so forth.

We’re open to ideas and technologies - in our codebase, you’ll find Angular 1.5 (sorry), React, Redux, Webpack, Babel, Jest and so forth.

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 on Friday, you won’t get much in the way of extras. However, we will give you 25 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.

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.
