We’re looking for a driven PR professional to join our Americas team in New York City and help us expand our brand awareness with media, stakeholders, and consumers.
A bit about the job:
We’re a fast growing company, so no two days will be the same. Your projects will range from announcing the latest product with a bang, to creating killer consumer campaigns that get people talking, or campaigning to change financial regulations.
Our brand is bold and so your approach to PR should be too.
We are a global PR team with people on almost every continent. In New York, the tight-knit marketing team provides ample support as needed. A fantastic opportunity for the right person.

TransferWise is the best way to move money around the world..
Since 2011, we’ve had a clear mission: money without borders. We want money to move around the world instantly, for free, transparently, and as easily as possible.
Whether you’re sending money to another country, spending money abroad, or making and receiving international business payments, TransferWise is on a mission to make your life easier and save you money.
More than 5 million people and businesses have stopped using banks, PayPal and traditional providers, because TransferWise is cheaper, faster and easier. Huge companies and banks use TransferWise technology too; an entirely new cross-border payment network that will one day power money without borders for everyone, everywhere.
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 plenty to do and we can’t do it alone.
Cofounded by Skype’s first employee and backed by some of the most experienced entrepreneurs, including Sir Richard Branson and the founders of PayPal, TransferWise is rebuilding how money moves and slashing the cost in the process.
There are over 1,500 employees from more than 80 countries working for TransferWise across our twelve offices. It’s a global community. Come and join the fun.
What it’s really like to work here?
At TransferWise, we do things a bit differently. There’s no corporate nonsense and no old-fashioned hierarchy. Instead, we work in self-sufficient, autonomous teams. Each team picks the problems they want to solve and does it - so there’s no micro-management or people telling you what to do. You will get tons of guidance and support from talented, super-smart colleagues from all over TransferWise. You’ll experience radical levels of ownership and empowerment within your role.
The way we work doesn’t suit everyone. But, if freedom, autonomy, and head-scratching professional challenges rock your world, we could be a match made in heaven.
It goes without saying that you’ll be a part of a fun, friendly atmosphere, with plenty of opportunities to grow personally and professionally.
You’ll get a competitive salary, flexible work hours and an all-expenses-paid company holiday every year (Summerdays). Everyone gets shares in the company too, because we believe that the revolution belongs to each of us.
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.
