About the role
We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer with a data security and privacy mindset to join our Data Governance team.
It is imperative that we protect our customers’ money and data. In addition, there are many interesting challenges when it comes to meeting regulatory requirements world-wide. As a Senior Software Engineer in the wider Platform tribe and Engineering organisation, you will have an opportunity to directly affect data governance engineering strategy, building production systems ensuring we have strong and effective data governance controls in place, to detect and mitigate risks across our systems.
Data Governance team develops and operates Wise’s data governance systems and tooling integrations with the numerous data technologies and services powering the Wise mission.
How we work
We operate on a strong belief in automation, programmatic implementation, and reusable design. We’re looking for people who can step back and think holistically about the ecosystem, but also follow through and help implement the design; drawing on the resources across the rest of the platform tribe.
As we grow, our services architecture and data ecosystems get more complex. We need to sustain this growth by ensuring automated controls, with a focus on availability, security, and ease of use. We’re looking for an engineer with relevant experience who can analyse complex requirements and deliver simple solutions to help our teams achieve our mission with speed and confidence.

  • Architect, design and implement reliable data governance services and tooling
  • Help protect customer data and meet regulatory requirements worldwide
  • Contribute to our mission of building secure data systems and flows powering the rails for global finance that customers can trust
What do you need?
  • Solid experience as a full-stack or backend engineer during which you developed skills in technologies like Spring boot, Docker, AWS, REST APIs (frontend skills is a big plus)
  • Experience running large stateful data systems and production services in the cloud (AWS preferred)
  • Strong fundamentals in distributed systems design and development
  • Proficiency in one or more programming languages (Java, Scala, Python) (JVM based language preferred)
  • A good understanding of relational databases, big data, and stream processing technologies (e.g. Kafka, S3, Flink, Snowflake)
  • Experience with enterprise data catalogue/governance systems or eagerness to master them is preferable
  • Mastery of fundamental software engineering practices like good design documentation, unit testing, peer code reviews, and a preference for agile methods
  • Excellent communication, presentation, interpersonal and organisational skills to communicate effectively new processes and workflows, and interact with teams from different areas of the organisation
  • Ability to assess risk and impact to the business and individuals from a privacy and data protection perspective
