An Insider's view of Flywire

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

This is a team that has fun and gets the job done. Flexible schedules and generous PTO are huge factors, but Flywire goes beyond that by fostering a fun, family-friendly environment. I love working in an atmosphere where work and friends and family seem to all blend together.


Talent Acquisition Specialist

How does the company support your career growth?

The exposure Flywire gives to all sectors of the business has made the most valuable impact on my career. Working cross-functionally with Flymates from other teams and other countries allowed me to broaden my scope and expand my skills. You learn to be agile and to adapt quickly to change, which has made me a better version of myself as a worker.


Program Manager-Global Partnerships

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

With the many different personalities and styles on my Team, I don’t employ a template for building or maintaining relationships with our partner schools. This 'thinking outside of the box’ approach allows for innovation, imagination, and resourcefulness. As a result, our message is consistent but the delivery is unique and personalized.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe in the Boston office is ‘work hard, play hard.’ Boston Flymates are extremely passionate about what they do and what they represent, which for me as a relatively new Flymate is so motivating and inspiring. I’ve never worked at a place where its people were so welcoming and always eager to help in any way they can!
