Learn about WeTransfer and their company culture.
WeTransfer was founded in 2009 as the simplest way to send big files around the world. Today we’re a set of beautifully obvious tools to keep your ideas moving.
Trust and transparency are two “offline” values that we bring to everything we do online. Because to change the world, we need creative ideas and a bit of advocacy. From day one, we’ve given away 30% of our advertising space to creatives we admire and causes we care about.
This has led to partnerships with artists including Björk, Solange, and FKA Twigs, as well as organizations like the Nelson Mandela Foundation, the UN Development Program, and the World Wildlife Foundation.

A little something about us
Millions of people all over the world love WeTransfer’s set of tools for the creative process. Join us in our mission to be behind every great idea.
We work in diverse and sometimes distributed teams. We enjoy a fresh, vegan-friendly catered lunch every day (don’t worry, there’s cheese and meat too). We attend personal growth workshops on public speaking skills or learning how to code, we participate in knowledge-sharing sessions by design and tech industry leaders, and we listen to experts talk about interesting topics like art forgery. We have a learning and development budget to spend on courses, conferences, and career coaches.
Every day, we live by our values of trust and transparency, and donate to creatives we admire and causes we care about. Every month, we have Play Day, for working on side projects or trying something new. Every year, we have an intense three-day hackathon with sweet cash prizes and sweeter bragging rights.
We believe good ideas deserve good company, which is why WeTransfer is a certified B Corporation. This means we work with companies across the globe to use business as a force for good, committing to a better planet for everyone. (Want to know more? We got you.)
We give away 30% of Wetransfer's advertising space to support artists and causes we believe in. To date, WeTransfer has donated more than $300 million worth in advertising inventory, raising awareness for issues such as gun control and net neutrality, and give visibility to organizations such as s the Nelson Mandela Foundation, the UN Development Program, and the World Wildlife Fund. In 2019, it helped abolish $35 million in medical debt for low-income residents of Los Angeles. We support and contribute to the open source software community—every engineer is given a yearly allowance to donate to an open source project that is dear to them. We regularly host events to talk about design, advertising, UX principles, and product development (the exciting, problem-solving and innovative kind of engineering, not the boring kind). And whether we work in marketing, data, or product, we are given the PR (and emotional) support to write articles and give talks—y’know, if you’re into that whole thought leadership thing.
