With the global pandemic, we have adopted a distributed way of working around our homebase in Amsterdam. While this has worked well, and we’ve welcomed our first truly remote member to our team, we do recognize the value in coming together as a group. If you’re applying from abroad, we would prefer you being based in Western Europe, roughly between London and Berlin, and willing to relocate to Amsterdam in time.
WeTransfer is an equal opportunity employer and we pride ourselves on the diversity of our people. We welcome you, and everything that makes you—well, you. That includes your gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, age, or disability status.
