Your mission is to play a key role in building Wise cards, as well as mapping and driving the product improvements and working with internal and external partners.

  • Challenge Yourself - You’ll be working with teams that face complex situations. You get the chance to question the norm and drive to make things happen instead of wondering why things happened. Through that you can learn more about yourself and what you are capable of when given the right tools and mentoring.

  • You’re proactive and a great relationship builder, experienced at working closely with product development teams, including product managers and engineers
  • Your curiosity has no limit and this is your guiding light. You have the self-awareness to recognise areas you don’t know and the humility to learn
  • You have a fair understanding of the world of OKRs(Objective & Key Results)and KPIs(Key Performance Indicators)

Some extra skills that would be awesome:

  • You are interested in or have knowledge/experience in the card payment industry.
  • You've worked projects that drive efficiency and scaling of manual work - know the challenges and how to overcome those

Also, qualifications aren’t that important to us. If you’ve got great experience, and you’re great at articulating your thinking, we’d like to hear from you.
