Front End Developer – Cherkasy, Ukraine at TransferWise
Cherkassy, UA

We're looking for a full-time Front End Developer to join our growing team in Cherkasy, Ukraine. The role is a unique opportunity to build beautifully simple experiences that guide our customers through TransferWise, helping them to live, travel and work internationally.

For our customers, using TransferWise 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 heaps to figure out, and we can't do it alone.

You'll receive a competitive package, generous stock options, flexible working and a range of other benefits.

Your mission

  • Help us take TransferWise to the next level as we scale to impact 100's of millions more customers. You'll hide away all complexities under the hood of our product and build seamless experiences for our customers
  • Working on the core flow of TransferWise, you'll guide our customers from their first experience on our landing page to completing a transfer and making sure they are informed every step of the way
  • Create clear and helpful interfaces, whilst maintaining consistency, maintainability, performance and an understanding of what problems our customers might encounter along the way

This role will give you the opportunity to:

  • Choose your own path to success- you'll share your expertise and ideas on the best technologies we can work with, to improve our internal tools and help teams work together. Our tech runs on React with SSR and all the bells and whistles, but we still have a large amount of angular 1 in older applications (with great test coverage, thankfully).
  • Be flexible in how and where you work, we understand everyone needs a little something different so we'll do our best to make it happen
  • Travel to work and learn with our teams in London, Tallinn, Budapest, Singapore, New York and more

A bit about you

  • You're passionate about product and user experience - customers are at the heart of what you do and that empathy drives your decisions
  • You understand how to test your assumptions and aren't afraid to try something, potentially fail and then learn from this experience
  • You are empowered by being able to make your own product decisions
  • You have expert knowledge of JavaScript and how it interacts with the DOM
  •  You feel comfortable with modern front-end frameworks and tools - React, Redux, Webpack and the like.
  • You are great to collaborate with
  • You consider tests a must
  • Your code reads like well-written prose
  • You have a strong sense of good UX and design
