Wise Engineering was built on a desire to approach tech product creation with more efficiency. Since 2006, we've created a tight-knit community of multi-disciplined product creators. Let us tell you our story and share a bit of our culture, so that you could get to know the people behind Wise Engineering better.

Engineeering wisely

Three software engineers Max, Joseph, and Serhiy work together in an IT company. They notice multiple things that they want to do differently, more effectively, and more WISEly. They decide to give it a shot. That's the time Wise Engineering sees the world. The first improvised office is arranged in a rented apartment, where three developers start to deliver their first web projects on their own.

First impactful client & Wise School

Projects number increases significantly. Looking for people that will empower the team, the founders start a mentorship program – Wise School and invite the best engineers to join. Some of the graduates are still with us. They are our senior guys whose stories of the old times never end. In 2010, the first big US client confirms collaboration (and is with us today). The Wise mobile team is created as well.

2013-2016

First big office & Wise identity

In 2012, we move to an office building. The team doubles and takes the whole floor. First PMs and designers join the team. First HR manager also starts working with the team on defining the company's value set and vision. Almost everyone from the team is enrolled in workshops and brainstorming sessions. We define our mission and move toward product creation, both in-house and together with our clients.

2017-2019

First in-house product launch & new look

Our corporate culture grows, and we assemble a list of values we share teamwide. Ownership, growth, enjoy the journey – become the pillars everything is built upon. We launch our first product – WaitronBot, a solution for restaurant management and food delivery. Senior engineers become its mentors, and the whole team roots for its success. Wise Engineering gets a new logo and updates its overall visual look.

2020-2022

Feeling united & stronger than ever

With the Covid pandemic forcing us to collaborate remotely, we start valuing office moments and our events even more. In February 2022, we face a huge nationwide challenge – an armed invasion of the neighboring country. We deliver all commitments to our partners and feel their great support. Located in the Western part of the country, we continue our work and launch multiple in-house volunteering initiatives.

Building own product ecosystem

We are proud of the journey that brought us to this point. We enjoyed every part of it, got valuable experiences, and stayed solid during the most challenging times. What started as three software engineers building web apps together has become so much more. We are now a team of more than 50 people, and we're growing. We develop 3 in-house products, have multiple external projects, and see great opportunities ahead of us.

Our Values

Our values frame who we are. We strive to live them every day. They drive us and impact every decision we make at Wise Engineering. We've put lots of thought into defining things we aspire to and qualities that unite us. Our values were defined through sessions of team workshops. That's why they truly reflect what we worship the most and are now the bedrock of our culture.
Ownership

We own what we do

Ownership is the core quality all Wisers share. It's about everyone stepping up and contributing when needed. Whether we develop our next in-house project, co-create with partners, or launch a new charity initiative. We speak when we have something to say and drive change. We act as owners – in a team, company, and life outside the office space.

Growth

We aspire growth

At Wise Engineering, we constantly challenge ourselves and strive to be a great place for everyone to grow and be recognized for that growth. We never feel content with our knowledge and have clear frameworks for engineers to expand their impact and grow in their careers. We take the growth of products we build personally and care about the results we achieve.

Journey

We enjoy our journey

Enjoy what you do is the basis of Wise philosophy. We are passionate about everything we build and really love the people around us. Wise brings together personalities with different backgrounds and multiple interests, yet united by common principles that drive them. The atmosphere at Wise helps us do a better job each day and deliver the best ideas.

Our culture

We believe in the power of culture because we see how it keeps our team integrated and strong despite all the modern challenges. We are glad to observe how new teammates add to our corporate culture and are proud of the things that remain unchanged for us over the years.

Knowledge sharing

Wise brings together knowledge-hungry personalities who, at the same time, love sharing what they've learned. Since 2018 we've been holding Wise Tech Talks. Also, we organize internal workshops systematically and have a half an hour time slot preserved for TWIL meetings every week.

Wise mentorship

Corporate mentorship at Wise has grown into a very strong and all-comprising process. Wise mentors help colleagues level up and offer their time, support, and insight. Wise School, a unique program for interns led by mentors, is a cornerstone of our company's engineering culture.

Wise impact

Wise charity initiatives are traditional and are absolutely natural for all of us. Before wartime, we helped local engineering talents and people in need. From day one of the invasion started in 2022, we shifted our focus towards assisting people from the attacked regions and Ukrainian defenders.

Our friendship

Wise is about friendships. Friendships that start with shared interests and last for years. We love spending time together. #active-life, #board-games, #mind-games, #car-club, #vacation are among our most popular Slack channels. We agreed to treat each other as close friends and we mean every ounce of it.
