While studying in London, Ismail Ahmed needed to send money home to his family in Africa. Every transaction meant a long journey to an agent who charged a small fortune in fees. Right then, he decided to try to make a difference in an industry that supports millions of people exactly like him.
Ismail’s vision then – to help people just like him improve the lives of those they care about – remains at the heart of everything we stand for today.
We believe in helping our customers’ hard work go further. We’ve helped millions of children to go to school, helped thousands of people to receive medical treatment and, every week, we help tens of thousands of people to pay their bills.
We bring online money transfer into the modern world – and most importantly, we do it all with the creativity, imagination and colourful spirit of our customers!

At WorldRemit we organise ourselves into cross functional squads focused around business
areas.Each squad is lead by: a Product Manager who looks ahead at the business opportunities an Engineering Manager responsible for technical approach and coaching the
engineers an Agile Delivery Manager who clears the way for the team and helps facilitate the
plan. The teams collaborate together to solve the customer problems and produce high quality software.
We are working flexibly - right now we are working from home and coming to the office for moments that matter. What’s a moment that matters? That’s up for you, your manager and team to agree but it might include:
● regular team meetings
● a project or collaboration session
● Planning sessions
It could also be that some teams decide that ‘moments that matter’ are a certain number of days together in the office each week or month.
