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.

WeTransfer’s mission is to enable the effortless transfer of creative ideas and that's why we aim to build simple tools around people’s creative process, on any device. We’re interested in the weird and wonderful ways that creative minds work, and how they shape the world around us. This thinking has made our products and brand loved by anyone – from our moms to your favorite artists. As we grow, the simplicity of our service will be challenged. So, we’re building a whole set of simple, stylish tools to help people get in, and stay in, their creative flow. What about our creative flow? That’s where The Studio comes in: the central hub for everything creative. As guardians of the WeTransfer brand, our in-house team of designers, art directors and developers oversees everything we put out into the world, shaping the core building blocks of our products and all of our communications. We work together with Marketing, Sales and Product teams to make sure everything we ship is as ‘WeTransfer’ as people expect.
