About Revolut

With an arsenal of awesome products that span spending, saving, travel, transfers, investing, exchanging and more, we've helped 40+ million customers get more from their money. And we're not done yet.

As we continue our lightning-fast growth,‌ two things are essential to continuing our success: our people and our culture. We've been officially certified as a Great Place to Work™ in recognition of our outstanding employee experience! So far, we have 10,000+ people working around the world, from our great offices or remotely, on our mission. And we're looking for more. We want brilliant people that love building great products, love redefining success, and love turning the complexity of a chaotic world into the simplicity of a beautiful solution.

About the role

The Legal team sits at the heart of Revolut and it's a very important part of the business. This lovely bunch supports all other Revolut teams, helping us achieve our goals every day 🚀

They're special, they're strong-willed, and they work in a lot of different areas (which isn't that common for an in-house role, we know, but they're just that good). From structuring credit programmes to launching into new territories, the Legal team does it all!

We hire both generalists (typically corporate/commercial solicitors) as well as specialists (such as compliance), alongside operations analysts, who are all responsible to make Revolut grow. Now it's your turn to WOW us! ✨

You'll work on some of the most exciting and challenging legal issues that impact fast-growing, disruptive fintech companies. You'll be joining a dedicated part of the Legal team that's responsible for responding to high-priority, complex and, sometimes sensitive topics. But who doesn't love a good challenge? 💪
