Sendwave is on a mission to make sending funds to loved ones as easy and affordable as sending a text and what makes us different from the rest is that we deeply care about the diasporas and communities we serve — and that comes with a sense of connection to the markets we operate in. The human experience behind sending money is at the centre of our belief system and we do that by remaining fee-free in most of our markets and offering round-the-clock customer care.

Our app is currently available in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and parts of Europe, and sends funds to 19 receiving countries for over 500,000 users. We currently have a 4.6-star rating on Trustpilot — people put their faith in us to deliver their money quickly, securely, and affordably. And we’re pretty darn proud of that.

Prioritize fearlessly.
There will always be more problems to solve and opportunities to pursue than we have the capacity for. We’re not afraid to say no and are willing to let fires burn, knowing that to win we must discern and execute decisively on the vital few rather than the important many.

Take full ownership of the outcomes we’re responsible for.
Our job is not to do what we can to solve a problem. It's to ensure that problem is solved. If an attempt to solve a problem doesn't work, we seek an alternative. If we need help, we request it, and, if necessary, demand it.

Forge a diverse team and inclusive culture.
We believe the challenges we’re addressing will be best met by a truly global, diverse team, working together. We’re not naive to the systemic bias and discrimination that make this easier said than done, so we check our egos, listen deeply, and measure progress towards making this a fundamental part of our success.

Maximize our rate of learning.
We view projects as ever-evolving drafts and welcome opportunities to discover that what we had in mind won't work so we can move to an even better end state. Most importantly, we do this fast. The faster we run these loops — as a company and individuals — the faster we’ll achieve our mission.

Embrace embarrassing honesty from ourselves and others.
We function best when we're open and honest with one another — especially about our challenges and doubts. We lean into uncomfortable conversations and support our colleagues when they do the same.

Maximize energy, not time spent.
We measure our own and others’ contributions by objectives reached, not time spent. Living a full life outside of work is necessary for high achievement over the long term.

Diversity & Inclusion commitment

Sendwave’s mission serves a global audience. In order to better service our customers, we want to create a workforce that represents and understands our users. We are committed to creating an inclusive and fair environment for our colleagues, partners, and customers

In order to do that, we need to capture a few things about the talent we attract. During the application process, we will ensure that all applicants are treated fairly regardless of age, disability, ethnicity, marital status, sexual orientation, religion, or belief. We also commit to making any reasonable adjustments you might need.

This information is confidential and used solely for monitoring purposes and does not form part of the recruitment and selection process. Through monitoring our applications we can continue to make better, more informed decisions about how we approach recruitment and promotion of our roles.

Thank you for helping us with this valuable work. We believe in creating an inclusive workforce, and you are helping us to monitor our ongoing commitment to treating everyone fairly.
