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

Product Owners are a special piece of how Revolut works. As a Product Owner, you hold sole responsibility over the roadmap of your team, daily operations, project execution, and how risks are addressed. You will have regular exposure to senior management, and be relied upon as the go-to person in your field. This role is all about responsibility, follow-through, and being a builder.

Revolut’s product teams are composed of a product owner, product associates, data scientists, and engineers. Financial Crime Technology has several dedicated product teams: Transaction Monitoring, Know Your Customer, Quality Control, Computer Vision, Automation, and Screening to name a few.

You will be highly exposed to the practicalities of customer-facing processes, the nitty-gritty of engineering, and the nuances of communicating complex ideas to senior management and banking partners alike.

We not only want to see you succeed in your role here at Revolut but also in the future. To that end, we will train you for your next role, giving you the necessary exposure from public speaking, to high-level business meetings, to building meaningful, impactful solutions.

More specifically, you will be leading Revolut’s Screening program, which builds systems and processes to automatically filter the activity against hundreds of risk databases. Our challenge is to have accurate, elegant and efficient systems to weed out the bad apples and provide the best possible customer experience possible in the process. We are looking for someone who can lead a global program involving multiple automated systems and teams of analysts to the highest standard.
