The company also managed to double its profits from £10.1 to £20.4m in the 12 months up to March 31. The customer base exceeded nine million earlier this year.

TransferWise has currently about 2,200 employees across 14 offices, serving their 9 million customers worldwide.

The upcoming hiring is therefore equivalent to more than a third of its current workforce. TransferWise also plans to hire the most workers in the UK with 175 new roles expected to be added in the next 6 months.

Kristo Käärmann, co-founder and CEO of TransferWise, said: “We’re already improving international banking for nine million people and businesses, but this is just the very beginning. We need a lot of help beyond our current team of 2,200 people to achieve our mission of money without borders.”

“We started TransferWise in 2011 distributed across 3 locations, and we have, over time, expanded to 14 offices. Working in distributed teams is in our DNA from the beginning, and we’re proud to be able to change and adapt our working practices to better suit our hard-working teams.”
