In New York, Wu got roles onstage and in independent movies. She made her screen debut with a supporting role in Stephanie Daley. She also had later supporting roles in Year of the Fish and The Architect. On television, she appeared in episodes of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Torchwood, and Covert Affairs, and also had a recurring role as Laudine Lee on the ABC soap opera One Life to Live in 2007. Wu moved to Los Angeles in 2010, where she was cast in Sound of My Voice, directed by Brit Marling.

Since 2012, Wu has starred in the critically acclaimed web series EastSiders. She earned two Indie Series Award nominations, in 2014 and 2016 for her performance.

In 2014, Wu participated in Sundance Screenwriters' Lab with two emerging Asian-American directors, Yung Chang and Christopher Yogi, in what she felt was a unique opportunity to support fellow Asian storytellers.

In 2014, after landing a role in one unsuccessful comedy pilot, Wu won the leading role in the ABC comedy series Fresh Off the Boat alongside Randall Park. The series is loosely based on the life of chef and food personality Eddie Huang and his book Fresh Off the Boat: A Memoir. The series premiered in 2015, and Wu received critical acclaim for her performance. E! named her a breakout star of the 2014-15 television season. For her performance, she was nominated for Critics' Choice Television Award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series and a Television Critics Association TCA Award for Individual Achievement in Comedy, both in 2015.

The #StarringConstanceWu hashtag meme inserts Wu's image into film promotional materials in order to highlight the paucity of Asian actors in starring roles.

In February 2017, it was announced that Wu had been set to star in Jon M. Chu's adaptation of Crazy Rich Asians, based off the bestselling novel of the same name by Kevin Kwan. Although she had initially auditioned for the role of Rachel in mid-2016, Constance could not accept due to a conflict with her work on the television series Fresh Off the Boat. However, Wu wrote to Chu explaining her connection with Rachel's character, and convinced him to push back the production schedule by four months.

Wu's character, Rachel, is an Asian-American economics professor at NYU who travels to Singapore with her boyfriend, Nick, to meet his wealthy family. Crazy Rich Asians was released in the United States and Canada on August 15, 2018 by Warner Bros., and is the first major Hollywood studio film to feature an all-Asian cast since 1993's The Joy Luck Club. Crazy Rich Asians was met with high critical praise, and became the number one film in the U.S. and Canada during its opening weekend.
