Every day, millions of people rely on WeTransfer to share their creative ideas.

WeTransfer aims to build simple tools around people’s creative process, on any device. We’re interested in the weird and wonderful ways that creative minds work, and how they shape the world around us. This thinking has made our products and brand loved by many—from our moms to your favorite artists. We design and deliver delightful experiences that continue to feel obvious and intuitive to millions of people every day.

So, the work we do matters. Come and be a part of it

About our workflow

We believe that software is gardening. We trust each other to make good decisions and to provide (and accept) constructive feedback. Collaboration is the key to making a great product. 

We want to build solutions that are long-lasting. This means writing code that is maintainable instead of quick fixes. Because our products are constantly changing, we believe our tech should be able to adapt. We believe that when code isn't tested it's legacy code and while we understand that it can take a lot of time and brainpower, it's worth it.

We try to give back to the community by open sourcing some of our tools. We build everything in a modular way, so that we can source parts of apps. We've published multiple projects that are part of our iOS app on GitHub and we're not stopping.

About Collect

On the desktop, WeTransfer solves a problem straightforwardly and elegantly. Big files aren't a big deal on mobile, so we decided to do something different within the realm of WeTransfer, which is all about sharing creative work. We enable people to collect the content that's on their phones and share them. Most apps operate in silos: your videos are on YouTube, images on Pinterest, music on Spotify, etc. We believe great things happen when these are combined and that's what our new product does: it allows you to make mixed media boards with anything that's on your phone.

The launch of our iOS app was a great first step but we are now working on a desktop app. And that's why we need you.

What you'll be doing

We are looking for someone to join the Collect team with all things technical where your initial focus will be managing our desktop app. You will be working on a product that has a user base of millions and continuing to build our web technology. 

You will be part of a multidisciplinary team, which includes designers and other developers, who will help take your ideas from implementation to production.

Qualities we’ll be looking for

Above all else, we value open communication and good teamwork to achieve a shared vision. It's important you understand what our users like, and believe in our ethos of keeping things simple.  

Solid web development skills. We currently use React.js and JavaScript.

  • Self-directed, highly-responsible and works well in a team environment
  • Stay abreast of advancements in technology and has a knack for assessing their relevance to WeTransfer

  • Can communicate difficult-to-understand topics and decisions clearly; you adapt the way you communicate to your audience (e.g. technical vs. less technical)

  • Collaborate effectively with junior engineers (and mentor where needed)

  • Strong verbal and written communications skills (English)
