Data Architect at Revolut
London, GB
A LITTLE ABOUT US ๐Ÿค”
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 ๐Ÿ‘ซ
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 NEED๐Ÿš€
We are looking for a strong, experienced, hands-on Data Architect who will help us sort out our data. When Revolut started, the company was simple enough to be run from a single room and our data could fit on a single Postgres instance. Now we have grown to hundreds of employees, and data has grown even more. In the last year, the volume has grown 20x and yet still, there are so many new datasets to be added! How do we make sure we don’t get lost in all this and can answer any question in a matter of seconds?We are creating a centralised team that will be in charge of creating tools that will sort out all our data access and quality problems. And you will be leading this team.
