Flywire reinvents sending and receiving cross-border payments

financial services/


Project Overview

Flywire is a global payments company that offers a platform for sending and receiving cross-border payments. The platform provides a streamlined process for international payments, with the ability to pay in local currencies, support for multiple payment methods, and real-time tracking of payments. 

Flywire’s platform is used primarily by educational institutions, healthcare providers, and businesses, enabling them to receive payments from customers and partners located in different countries.​


  • Adding enhancements/features to applications used by multiple clients with different design and UX preferences requires agility and ownership of the development process.​
  • Taking ownership also involves adapting to changing priorities and team composition, which can be impacted by staff turnover.​
  • Adapting to legacy technologies and developing new features with limited resources can pose significant challenges.​
  • Work within the constraints of the existing infrastructure and technology stack to maintain the overall integrity of the applications.​
  • Adjustments to clients and partners were required to accommodate their constantly evolving needs​.
  • Because of the dependencies between the teams, collaboration across verticals and the core platform was necessary to achieve successful enhancement.​ 


  • Payables - Provides clients with the ability to send Payments to different intermediaries​​
  • User verification - Integrated with third party systems so that schools can automatically verify a beneficiary’s BANK details​
  • Review process - Implemented feature to allow reviewing / leaving comments/ approving / rejecting a bundle of Payments or a beneficiary. Including the ability to have multiple approvers and more complex review logic​
  • Payment/Beneficiary import - Provides universities and travel companies (and many others) the ability to import files with multiple Payments or beneficiaries at once, instead of having to import them one by one​
  • Upgrade to the latest versions of Node.js, React and Spring Security to provide better security and performance​
  • Automated regression​
