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

Our Technology team isn’t just one of the best in the industry. It's one of the best in the world. And we’re proud of it. It’s our driving force — our engine 🚀

From building a new financial backend to creating an award-winning app, there’s nothing (and we mean nothing) our tech team can’t do.

Our Technology team isn’t here to fix legacy systems — it’s here to build world-class financial products from the ground up.

Revolut People is a brand new product from Revolut, a one-stop shop for all people needs, from performance and recruitment to HR. It enables companies to create a strong performance culture from the start, supporting a 30x growth, just like it did for us. If you’ve ever wanted to join a completely new product from the start, this is your chance.

As an Engineer at Revolut, you’ll never work alone. You'll work alongside the brilliant minds behind Revolut People, collaborating with Data Scientists, Analysts, and Product Owners to create impressive solutions for our customers.

  • Building APIs, making sure they’re properly designed and scaled as Revolut People scales
  • Thinking of complex features from scratch, system designing a solution that's fast but scales

  • Creating data pipelines, powering reporting, data science, and analytics

What you'll need

  • 5+ years of experience working as a Software Engineer

Building a global financial super app isn’t enough. Our Revoluters are a priority, and that’s why in 2021 we launched our inaugural D&I Framework, designed to help us thrive and grow everyday. We're not just doing this because it's the right thing to do. We’re doing it because we know that seeking out diverse talent and creating an inclusive workplace is the way to create exceptional, innovative products and services for our customers. That’s why we encourage applications from people with diverse backgrounds and experiences to join this multicultural, hard-working team.
