Mission: Money without borders - instant, convenient, transparent and eventually free. We’re powering money for people and businesses in their increasingly global lives - to pay, to get paid, to spend, in any currency, wherever you are, whatever you’re doing.
I worked at TransferWise full-time (More than a year)
- Great place to learn to build a product. Great place to work if you want to open your startup in the future.
- Very flexible in terms of holidays, working remotely (from home or in trips anywhere around the globe)
- Apart from a few engineers, most are quite poor. Lots and lots of tech debt which is hard to pay up due to lack of concern for quality.
- Low salary. Pays quite below the market
Advice to Management
Management needs to be more present in guiding the direction of teams
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TransferWise (London, England) in August 2015.
Briefly described my experience and had an OO task on a whiteboard. After that had a chat about software development and company practices. Everything was very nice, had a chance to discuss functional programming and discuss company culture. Overall a very good experience. The only bad thing is that I needed to wait for another couple of weeks for results.
After a billion pound beta, we’re opening the TransferWise debit card to the public. Read more from our co-founder & CEO, Kristo Käärmann, on what the launch of our free borderless account means for people and businesses worldwide http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQWfs
