A LITTLE ABOUT US 🤔
From clunky apps to hidden fees, banking is broken. So we decided to build a company from the ground that would challenge the bigger players and reinvent how people interact with their money — for the better.
Traditional banks are slow and expensive. Realistically, you’re nothing but a number to them with dollar signs attached. So, one continent at a time, we plan on changing this.

OUR CULTURE 👫
To put it bluntly — it’s about getting shit done and owning what you do. We don’t hide behind fancy job titles or set up bureaucratic processes. Instead we treat our people equally, fairly and give them a ton of freedom and autonomy to create something awesome.
We make mistakes, we learn from them and we back everything up with data and logic.
In three years, we’ve grown to over 700 people and we’re adding around 30 new additions each month. From engineers to marketers, we’re on the hunt for exceptional talent to help us scale our business and get Revolut in the hands of millions of people everywhere.

WHAT WE NEED 🚀
We are looking for a talented individual to secure licences for Revolut all around the world and help us become the biggest financial institution in the world.

WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING ✍️
You will join our global licensing team and be responsible for all regulatory licences we are pursuing (from accepting deposits, arranging loans and extending lines of credit to stock trading and other trading activities).
This role is the central repository for all future regulatory licence policies. You will be responsible for preparing Revolut’s regulatory policies in connection with a number of local licence applications. This position will have not only responsibility for the preparation of the policies in connection with the licensing application, but also other regulatory and compliance areas or functional programs such as regulatory compliance management concerning all payments services regulations.

• Provide compliance and conduct advice on queries and projects
• Identify external regulatory change, conduct an impact assessment and communicate the change to key business stakeholders
• Develop a strong and robust process for the effective capture and delivery of conduct risk reporting to Senior Management

WHAT SKILLS YOU’LL NEED 📖
• Minimum of two years of relevant experience in complex retail/consumer financial services/payment services organizations in a regulatory oversight / risk-based compliance capacity
• Ability to distil important information from regulatory guidance, statutes and regulations, audit findings, and other documents and determine how it impacts the business
• Understanding of regulatory requirements vs. “best practices” in compliance is critical
• Must be able to perform independently and with minimal supervision
• Strong organizational skills – must be multi-tasked oriented and able to balance pressure and deadlines with constantly changing priorities
• Strong written and verbal communication skills
• A detailed and broad understanding of the regulatory requirements that apply to a Payments Institution
