TransferWise, the global technology company building the best way to move money around the world, today announces the creation of 750 roles globally, with 175 of these to be in London. The news comes following a period of exponential growth for the business, with revenue growing 70% in the last financial year to £302.6 million.
Despite the economic climate, TransferWise has continued to expand throughout 2020, now reaching nine million customers worldwide, from 14 offices across the globe. Currently with 2,200 employees, the latest hiring goals will see the business grow almost a third, in the space of just half a year.
To cater to its existing teams, and in response to the pandemic, TransferWise has also extended it’s remote working policy from 30 days to 90 days; meaning people can work remotely, in another country, for up to 3 months. Employees worldwide can enjoy working and living in a country they don’t know, or to travel to their home country to be with family.
Kristo Kaarmaan, Founder and CEO of TransferWise, said: "We’re already improving international banking for nine million people and businesses, but this is just the very beginning. We need a lot of help beyond our current team of 2,200 people to achieve our mission of money without borders. Our remote working policy is designed with an international team at heart. We started TransferWise in 2011 distributed across 3 locations, and we have, over time, expanded to 14 offices. Working in distributed teams is in our DNA from the beginning, and we’re proud to be able to change and adapt our working practices to better suit our hard working teams."
TransferWise is headquartered in London, with offices in Tallinn, Budapest, Brussels, Cherkasy, Abu Dhabi; the US - New York and Tampa; in Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong, Melbourne, Kuala Lumpur, and Sao Paulo.
