ABOUT THE TEAM
Our Technology team is one of the best in the business and is the driving force behind Revolut’s platform. From building a new banking backend to creating an award-winning app, our tech team is at the heart of everything we do.
Working in Technology at Revolut is not about fixing legacy systems – it is about building world-class financial products from the ground up that will be used by millions. We’ve hired some of the most talented developers out there to help us do this – and we want you to join them.
 
Risk Management is one of the most cross-cutting teams at Revolut. We sit at the very core of Revolut and ensure the company keeps itself on certain ground. The team operates as the second line of defense covering all offices globally and is responsible for ensuring that risks and controls are properly managed by the first line.
Risk Technology team automates risk-governance processes and creates risk monitoring and reporting tools for operational, conduct, credit, market and liquidity risks. We make sure that all risk exposures of Revolut are registered in our system, all stakeholders are timely alerted if exposures breach certain thresholds (representing our risk appetite), remediation actions are proposed, assessed and approved by senior management, then assigned to risk owners and their implementation is monitored - all in an automated way. We automate decision-making processes around (and maintain registers of) policies and procedures, vendor relations, new products, risk incidents etc. We integrate with various data and service providers to obtain FX rates, accounts information, negative news feeds etc. Most of these systems are at an early stage of development or are still to be designed and built.
