The world as we know it is no longer the same. Changes now occur in days and months, not years. The digital revolution is here, and Airwallex is at the centre, facilitating the transformation of businesses from offline to online, from local to global.
Airwallex was built with a single purpose in mind – to create a world where all businesses can operate without borders and restrictions, and by doing so, propel the growth of the global digital economy.
Airwallex was inspired by real-life experiences of running our own business and expert knowledge of how money moves.
Out of their love for good coffee, engineering-banking friends Jack Zhang and Max Li started Tukk & Co, a café in Melbourne. As small business owners, they recognised first-hand the impact of high FX fees and banking costs on their profit margins, and sought out to build a better solution for businesses operating cross-border, improving on the constraints of the current global financial system.
Airwallex was founded by Jack and Max, together with friends from the University of Melbourne, Lucy Liu and Xijing Dai.
Our values define who we are and how we work. We strive to live by our six guiding principles.
Our customers are why we are here. Knowing them, keeping them and consistently delivering a superior experience is the only way we can fulfill our mission.
We always start by asking why and seek to understand. We have a hunger for knowledge, seek challenges that are insatiably interesting and always consider if there are better ideas.
Inspire and Be Inspired
We are a melting pot of cultures and ideas, and we recognise that happy, healthy and highly-functioning teams are inclusive and diverse. We celebrate success, share knowledge, learn and grow together.
We want to constantly seek the truth, to be open, constructive and transparent, approaching every problem with data and facts, not conjecture and opinion.
We are about product and engineering excellence. We create products and solutions with passion, finesse and meticulous attention-to-detail to deliver the best customer experience and outcome.
The reason we show up every day is our desire to make an impact and create a better world with what we do. We have one purpose in mind - to empower businesses of all sizes to grow without borders and scale the digital economy.
