Agile Coach: Maternity Cover at WeTransfer
Every day, millions of people rely on WeTransfer to share their creative ideas. So, the work we do matters. Come and be a part of it.
What we do
WeTransfer, at its heart, is about enabling the effortless transfer of ideas. We get them from where they are to where they need to be — turning a spark into a series, a passion into a project, a hobbyist into a hustler. That you knew of course, and then there's you.
It’s not only our users we’re there for. At WeTransfer we want our employees to be the best they can be. We started out as a company based in Amsterdam working on making one process work very well. Now we have evolved into a global company with over thirty nationalities, three offices, and a creative suite of products that all work collectively together.
