Tell Us About Your Journey from Studies to Employment at Remitbee Online Money Transfer Company

After completing my studies, I was looking for a transforming environment. Remitbee was my obvious choice! Most of the companies that I explored were doing website development or marketing, but Remitbee was offering a disruptive online money transfer service. I felt that this company has a great idea behind it, and this idea was very close to me as an immigrant in Canada. I joined Remitbee’s team with great confidence as we are providing a trusted online money transfer service, which makes the lives of immigrants in Canada and their families abroad better and easier.
