Data Scientist - FinCrime Reporting at Revolut
London, GB
ABOUT THE TEAM
The Financial Crime Technology department is at the forefront of Revolut’s efforts to keep customers and their money safe. Through the intelligent development and deployment of technology, we aim to prevent financial crime more effectively than traditional banks.
We operate in small, nimble teams that are built for scale, speed, and quality. Each unit is responsible for a different pillar of fincrime, giving you the chance to have a real impact on crucial problems that affect millions of people around the world.
 
ABOUT THE ROLE
 
You will work with the Financial Crime team. We are data engineers, machine learning engineers, data scientists, backend engineers and financial crime specialists solving some of the hardest anti-fraud and anti-money laundering problems in the world. Our team builds and deploys systems that tap into different data sources, interact with different parts of the infra and leverage machine learning and data to most efficiently protect all of our clients and ourselves. We are looking for a data scientist to help us better fight financial crime through developing and putting into prod online and offline algorithms that leverage our existing systems and the data. As part of the reporting team, you will make sure that our financial crime analysts are provided with all the tools and information to investigate criminal activity of Revolut users, to report on it to the highest standards of depths and thoroughness, and to satisfy the regulatory- and compliance requirements. If you are skilled in formulating and solving business and machine learning problems, possess a passion for getting to the bottom of how things work and building solutions and have an aptitude for applied maths and data technologies, then this is your gig!
 
What you'll be doing:
 
- You will be responsible for getting to the bottom of what data tell us and building new business logic and machine learning models to identify Revolut users engaged in criminal activity and to discover patterns of criminal behaviour pertinent to individual criminals and organised crime groups. Our data scientists are end-to-end practitioners which are responsible for coming up with an idea, prototyping the model, implementing it in our pipelines and measuring its impact in production.
- You will work alongside a team of 10+ machine learning engineers and data scientists in Financial Crime and come up with innovative new signals, features and embeddings. At Revolut, we are firm believers in measuring and rewarding success, and your KPIs will be dictated by how much impact your work is having on the fraud and ML rates while not compromising our good users’ experience.
- Our data stack is based mainly on Python on the backend and Exasol as our data warehouse. We are hosted on GCP and our data scientists and engineers rely heavily also on DataFlow, Big Query, Airflow / Composer and Apache Beam for their machine learning data pipelines.
 
WHAT SKILLS YOU'LL NEED
 
- You have a strong command of Python and write efficient code. We primarily use Python 3.7.
- You have experience in making prod machine learning solutions via internships or full-time roles.
- You have experience with creating metrics to assess the impact and health of a model/solution.
- You have a strong command of some flavour of SQL.
- Experience with methods from network science is a plus.
- Experience with Git, batch job management tools, CI/CD, containerisation (Docker) and Kubernetes is a plus.
- Experience with cloud-based infrastructure such as GCP or AWS is a plus.
