TransferWise Engineering Bootcamp - Join us for the summer!
-----------------------------------------------------------
An internship at TransferWise is your chance to develop your skills within one of Europe's fastest growing companies ( https://ig.ft.com/ft-1000/2018/ ). You'll learn by doing, working directly with our teams to take on real-world projects that impact millions of people around the world.
Our paid Product Engineering Bootcamp will start in June and last for 3 months. You can apply to join one of our engineering hubs in Tallinn, London, Budapest, Cherkasy or Singapore. You'll join one of our teams as a developer and build products that matter. There will also be the opportunity to join us in a permanent role at the end of the internship.
Who should apply?
-----------------
We're looking for people who are passionate about learning and building something that impacts the way the world works and lives. This opportunity is for you if:

  • You're a massive tech nerd (like us) and love code in any shape or form
  • You're kick-ass at full-stack modern web development (JVM and JS experience helps)
  • Have built cool stuff which you can explain to your grandma
  • When the DB goes nuts and your code goes sideways you keep your wits and find a solution
"What I liked the most was that my title as an intern was not a limit on what I could do. From day one I felt like I was part of the company and free to take on as much responsibility as I wanted. I got to see how what I built resulted in immediate results of faster, more efficient operations of the product and impacted millions of customers" - Smaranda, 2018 Bootcamper 

Application process:

  • We'll firstly review your application and see if you could be a fit for TransferWise. Make sure your CV is easy to read and clearly explains your achievements. Be sure to attach anything that shows your passion! Anything from your GitHub portfolio to blog posts you might have published
  • If you're successful in the application review, we'll do a little test on your technical abilities (via HackerRank), just so we know you're not getting in over your head
  • We'll then make sure you have some grasp on figuring out what people actually need, and how to provide that for them in our Engineering & Product Thinking Challenge
