Wise is one the fastest growing companies in Europe and we’re on a mission : to make money without borders the new normal.
We’ve got 10 million customers across the globe and we’re growing. Fast.
Current banking systems don’t let us send, spend or receive money across borders easily. Or quickly. Or cheaply.
So, we’re building a new one.
And, we’re looking for a Software Engineer Reliability Engineering to work closely with product teams in London, solving some of the challenging scale up and reliability challenges that we have.
For our customers, using Wise should feel as simple as sending a text message. Yet behind our app and website lies a complex, one-of-a-kind engine of currencies and routes that’s being designed, built and powered by our talented teams in cities around the world.
With new capabilities being built every day, there’s still a lot to figure out, and we can’t do it alone. This role is a unique opportunity to have an impact on Wise mission , grow as a product leader and help save millions more people money.
The Site Reliability Engineering team is responsible for understanding deeply the sources of unreliability, and how we can build better systems that are resilient and cope well against these.
Reliability is a partnership between product and platform teams, and SRE is responsible for leading optimal use of the best practices across industry, to build the best possible product for our customers.
It is expected that SREs have a healthy dose of paranoia knowing how complex, distributed systems can fail.
Here’s how you’ll be contributing to the Engineering Team
After onboarding, it will be a case of identifying challenges that the team(s) are facing when it comes to reliability and scaling to meet our customers’ demand.
This means understanding what the tradeoffs are when it comes to the product from what are the product expectations, to thinking about failure modes and fallbacks of distributed systems.
You are a problem solver and are able to deliver iterable or evolving solutions, in a collaborative and open way.
Is that you?
