The legal department sits at the heart of Revolut and is a core part of the business. Members of the team provide front-line guidance and support to all areas of the company, contributing to decisions that impact on Revolut’s growth every day. The breadth of work you will encounter (and level of commercial involvement) is pretty unique for an in-house role, from structuring credit programmes to launching into new territories. We hire both generalists (typically corporate/commercial solicitors) as well as specialists (such as compliance), alongside operations analysts, all of whom have a large degree of responsibility for Revolut’s ongoing development and growth.

About the role

We’re looking for a Regulatory Legal Counsel to sit within our growing legal team. You can be based in our New York or San Francisco offices, or you can work remotely in the U.S..

We are a fast moving business that deploys changes to its platform through the app store every week. This means that you will be empowered to advise on all stages of the product lifecycle - from idea conception through to post deployment remediation.

We look for people who apply deep logic to their thinking and back everything up with data. We look for natural self-starters who see things through from start to finish, and who learn from every mistake. Does this sound like you?
