Who are we?
WorldRemit is changing the way people send money abroad. We’ve taken something complicated and made it simple. Tap the WorldRemit App or click on our website and your international transfer is made – to a bank account, cash pickup, Mobile Money, or airtime top-up. Founded in 2010, we send international remittances from 50 countries to more than 150 countries and we continue to expand our footprint.
Using WorldRemit is easy because we do the hard bit, connecting hundreds of banks, money agents, mobile operators and payment systems around the world. These were never designed to work together, but WorldRemit makes it happen.
WorldRemit has grown on average by 50% year on year and is now processing over £3bn of remittances on an annualised basis. We have raised c.$200 million in funding, currently employ over 750 employees and have offices in London, USA, Philippines, Poland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong and other locations.
The journey is just beginning. We believe in faster, simpler, more accessible money transfers. That means building better products and services for our customers.
Changing the world isn’t easy – so we only hire the most talented people. You need to think differently, believe in new solutions to old problems, and have the drive to make them happen. We aim to attract, retain and develop people that can bring to life our values:

About the Role
WorldRemit is changing the way people send money. We’re building digital services that allow people to send and receive money easily. Most of our customers are hard-working migrants in Africa, Asia and Latin America. We’re always seeking to better serve our customers and find ways to improve our product – this role is to help us deliver important new features and innovation in a highly efficient and fast-paced way.
We hire bright people who can work autonomously and make the right decisions. You could be working on customer facing products, our internal platforms or thinking about
how we move money around the world. We will match you with the team that best aligns with your interests and experience, making sure that you have maximum impact.
As a Product Manager, you’ll:
Develop a clear, coherent product strategy for your product area. You’ll have a strong focus on delivering business value and user value
Own and drive the metrics for your area, helping us identify what success looks like and how to reach it
Use your initiative to lead your product strategy. You’ll collaborate across WorldRemit to collect ideas and problems to solve, but you won’t be an ‘order taker.’
Maintain a roadmap in-line with your strategy, then follow through on it by writing clear user stories, prioritising features, bugs and tech debt appropriately
Work closely with the engineering team to have a detailed understanding of the problems, opportunities and potential solutions
Manage stakeholders – you’ll know when to listen, but also have the conviction to deliver hard messages
Endlessly pursue a deep understanding of the customer, informed through research and data analysis
