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

Pricing Lead – London

As a financial technology service/company moving billions of GBP of customer money in over 70 countries, TransferWise must have bulletproof financials. We need timely, accurate and scalable financial data to be compliant with regulations and make accurate business decisions inside the company.

We’re looking for an experienced Pricing Lead to join our Finance team in London.  You’ll be part of the team that helps TransferWise set the right price across all products and routes.

Your mission:

  • Build and evolve our cost allocation and pricing models to be accurate, robust, and efficient, in a way that captures the economics of the underlying product 
  • Drive rigour and consistency in our process of updating these models and sharing them with the wider business   
  • Own price changes, end-to-end, in partnership with product, design, comms, developers, ... Build a framework to analyze and understand the impact of these changes on our growth
  • Develop actionable insight from our data on costs and price, and partner with our product org to identify opportunities to scale costs and drive down price 
  • Drive the strategic evolution of how we price for our newer segments and products - from business users, to the Borderless account, to our Banking partners
  • Ensure the relevant controls are in place that assure we set the right price, charge the right price, and collect the right revenue across users and transactions

  • Passionate about what we’re building at TransferWise 
  • Care deeply both about the details and making sure things are “right”, while retaining the ability to think through the impact of your work at a broader strategic level
  • Keen to roll up sleeves and get the job done, we all do our own Excel still
  • Ability to operate to defined timelines while bringing together a diverse stakeholder group
  • Humble, comfortable operating with a level of uncertainty, keen to learn

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.
