The finance team is the backbone of Revolut’s business. The department has grown from its initial internal accounting setup to an important business enabling function that supports all areas of the business, including advising on cash flows for new product development, accounting and data specifications for new businesses, assessing financial implications of key strategic decisions and growth opportunities, among others.

When you join the finance team you get the opportunity to interact with all areas of the company both domestically and international: one day you are involved in a banking license application process, the next you are running analysis for a new product launch, and the next you are working on an executive summary of Revolut’s performance for the board of directors.
