Personal qualities we appreciate

If you’re keen to collaborate, learn, grow, try new things and aren’t afraid of a bold plan, you’ll fit right in.

We are a growing company.

At Wise we work in self-sufficient, autonomous teams. Think of them like start-ups within a start-up that learn from each other.

Teams pick the problems they want to solve. There’s no micro-management. No hiding behind fancy job titles. And no one telling you what to do. You're your own boss. But you’ll get tons of guidance & plenty support from talented, super-smart colleagues.
