I have been working at TransferWise full-time
If you are eager to learn, then here are endless opportunities.
Flexible working (not in every team tho).
Very very smart people.
You can have an impact.
The whole team gets bigger and each topic has more stakeholders, which makes the decision point also harder/longer.
Little bit of the loudest/most popular wins style.
Not all new hires are 100% match with company values.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at TransferWise (Singapore (Singapore)) in March 2020.
Got referred by a friend working in TransferWise
First, you will need to complete an online Hackerrank Test. The test duration is 90 mins. Mixes of MCQs and Coding questions. MCQs are in the domain of OOP and a few common engineering knowledge. Coding questions have both Algorithm and SQL. All are mid-level nothing too difficult. Get yourself familiar with Hackerrank beforehand and you should be fine.
Next Recruiter will have an initial chat with you for 30 mins. My recruiter was friendly and professional.
The next round gonna be an onsite technical round with 2 engineers for 90 mins. We went through my background and the system that I have previously worked on. We did 2 algo questions, again, mid-level, your thought process is what matters here.
If you pass the technical round, there is a product round after this, you will meet a PM and discuss your thought on product development and decision in general. The round can be pretty fast, mine last 30 mins.
The final round is a Tech Lead round, where I meet 2 tech leads. It's like a combination of both technical and product round. My impression of the tech lead is good. They do have a very deep technical knowledge base on my discussion with them during the interview.
I got an offer a few days later. The recruiter will schedule a Zoom meeting with both of the team leads above to go through the offer and the detail of my position with me. This is a very unique experience as in other companies, normally recruiters will just call you to announce the offer.
Overall, I feel like TW really cares about each candidate and willing to spend a lot of time and attention on potential candidates.
