Airwallex is a global payments fintech company transforming the way businesses move and manage money globally. We have built a global financial infrastructure platform to help businesses transact, collect and pay across 130+ countries and 50+ currencies, without the constraints of the traditional global financial system. We've grown to 13 global locations and have raised over $900 million in funding. To support our ambitious growth plans, we’re looking for smart, collaborative and passionate people who are looking to make a genuine impact.
At Airwallex, you will work closely with a group of talented engineers with a passion for learning through solving the most challenging problems with cutting-edge technology.

In short, you will make Airwallex to be a truly data-driven organization. We are looking for talented senior Data Engineers excited about redefining what it means to do Data Engineering. However, we also recognize that each Data Engineer has a unique blend of skills. Whether your strength is in data modeling or data processing, we want to talk to you.

- Design our data content models for optimal storage and retrieval and to meet critical product and business requirements.
- Contribute to shared Data Engineering tooling standards to improve the productivity and quality of output for Data Engineers across the company.
