We’re building a scalable, high performing platform for our 16 million customers. And we’re looking for a Software Engineering intern to join us on our mission for 10 weeks during the summer (24 June – 30 August 2024). 

Wise is a global technology company, building the best way to move and manage the world’s money.

Whether you’re sending money to another country, spending money abroad, or making and receiving international business payments, Wise is on a mission to make your life easier and save you money.

You’ll be part of Wise’s global mission to build an open, fair, and human financial system - to make money without borders the new norm. Because people without borders need money without borders.

How you will contribute to the Engineering team: 

  • You will help shape and build our product’s future
  • Work cross-functionally in squads who are vital to driving the mission of our business forward
  • Create clear and helpful interfaces, whilst maintaining consistency, maintainability and performance
  • Understand the challenges our customers face and set out to solve them
  • You will have flexibility in how and where you work. We understand everyone needs a little something different - so we’ll do our best to make it happen, but we recommend coming to the office as much as possible in your first months!

What does it take? These things are a must:

  • You are graduating in 2025 from a Bachelors or Masters degree. This might be in Computer Science, or any other STEM subject
  • Able to start a 10 week internship from the 24th of June 2024 until the 30th of August 2024

  • You believe in and follow best coding practices and code reviews
  • You are open to and value feedback in order to improve
  • Familiarity of data models with SQL
  • Knowledge of working with RESTful Web Services
  • A basic knowledge in modern web technologies and a strong interest in web development
  • Eligible to work in Budapest

And these would be great, but aren’t essential:

  • Experience in web or microservice development, from a previous internship or project 
  • Familiarity with any major programming languages like Java/JavaScript/Python/Kotlin/Swift (we are more focused on your willingness to learn new technologies)
  • A strong product mindset and passion for user experience. You prioritise work with customers in mind, and make data-driven decisions to fix customer pain-points 

...Don’t worry, we don’t expect you to know everything!

What you get back:

  • Have a real impact. Solve real customer problems
  • Lots of team activities
  • Salary of gross 640,000 HUF
