ABOUT THE TEAM
The Financial Crime Operations department is at the forefront of Revolut’s efforts to keep customers and their money safe. Working directly with customers to resolve issues and flag potential concerns and using cutting edge 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.
WHAT WE NEED
We’re looking for someone who can see what’s broken in the financial crime industry, someone who has a burning itch to fix it, and someone who is simply missing the means and resources to do it. If financial crime seems like an eminently fixable problem to you, keep reading.
In more boring detailed terms, we’re looking for a Financial Crime Operations Manager to work within our financial crime technology team in London. Revolut takes a technology-first approach to financial crime prevention. While some elements are automated, others still need a helping hand from a friendly neighbourhood human to help prevent financial crime. By working alongside our strategy and technology teams, you’ll be expected to examine operational processes; optimise, patch, fix, or even replace & retire the broken elements; and take a high degree of responsibility over the detection and reduction of financial crime.
Be warned, this is a very hands-on role!
We’ve hired some of the most talented staff in the world, on both sides of the technology and compliance aisle, and we’re keen to showcase their talent to the world - and that’s where you come in. Our team is highly technical and detail-oriented, and we love to get down into the nitty-gritty to make the best possible experience.
WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING
- Working hands-on with our business-as-usual teams to reach financial crime best practice
- Rapid response to ongoing financial crime trends
- Undertake ad-hoc analysis whenever needed
- Crisis management
- Critical thinking and analysis of products to identify credible methods by which Revolut is exposed to financial crime
- Optimise, patch, fix, or even replace & retire operational processes
- Have a keen eye for how data is being generated from operational processes and understand how that will affect business analytics
- Juggling multiple high value projects
WHAT SKILLS YOU'LL NEED
You see what’s broken in the industry and have a desire to fix it
You are results driven, pragmatic, and detailed
You enjoy working with data to facilitate your work using such tools as SQL, Python and Excel
You are good at picking up new tools and bringing them to bear on a problem you have today
You are known to be a steady hand and calm under fire
You have an acute love for problem solving
You are able to make both short term and long term decisions
You can explain complex things very easily
A LITTLE ABOUT US
We believe that there are better ways for people to control their money. Easier, fairer ways.
Revolut started in 2015 with card transactions abroad without rubbish exchange rates or hidden fees. We've since added business accounts, vaults, insurance and even access to cryptocurrency exposure.
We reached 5 million customers in June 2019 and we're adding another million every quarter.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
From employee 1 to employee 1000, you will be slotting into a global team that shares a number of traits.
You can work autonomously and take ownership. We thrive with the space and responsibility to solve problems.
You operate best without lots of bureaucracy. We don’t hide behind fancy job titles or clunky processes ‘because that’s how things are done’.
You approach work in a logical way. We are not afraid to make mistakes but we use data and logic to backup decisions and improve understanding.
And you share our mission to improve people’s relationship with their money.
