A Little About Us

We believe that there are better ways for people to control their money. Easier, fairer ways.

Revolut started in 2015 with fee-free card transactions abroad. We’ve since added current accounts, business accounts, savings, insurance, and even cryptocurrency trading.

We reached 9 million customers in November 2019 and we’re adding another million every quarter.

And we’re only just getting started.

Come and help Revolut build the world’s first truly global bank.

What We Are Looking For

From employee 1 to employee 1000, you will be slotting into a global team that shares a number of traits.

You can work autonomously and take ownership. We thrive with the space and responsibility to solve problems.

You operate best without lots of bureaucracy. We don’t hide behind fancy job titles or clunky processes ‘because that’s how things are done’.

You approach work in a logical way. We are not afraid to make mistakes but we use data and logic to backup decisions and improve understanding.

And you share our mission to improve people’s relationship with their money.
