Want to be part of a team making sending money anywhere in the world easy and affordable? Join us and work from anywhere!

In 2019, immigrants worldwide sent over $550 billion home to family and friends, dwarfing foreign governmental aid. Sendwave’s mission is to make sending money anywhere in the world easy and affordable. Since 2014, our app has allowed diaspora members from African nations – and more recently Bangladesh and Sri Lanka to send money back home.

In just a few short years, Sendwave has gone from a simple idea to becoming one of the world’s leading money senders to Africa. Created by two engineers from Brown University, Sendwave is supported by an outstanding team of fully remote developers. Sendwave was acquired last year and continues to operate independently.

Now we are willing to rapidly expand globally. That’s where you come in. To achieve our mission, we need to make sure our app is easy to use for every interaction, from signup to sending, to editing info and to resetting your password.

We are looking for Android Developers that are highly proficient with Swift and will work closely with our Head of Product to fix highly impactful user problems and A/B test interface changes to make the experience even smoother and quicker. Join our distributed team while working from anywhere!
