The UK’s fastest-growing financial technology company is coming to the US! We are looking to add a talented Legal Counsel who specializes in regulatory matters. This is not just another job. This is your opportunity to be a game changer!
The Legal team 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 Revolut’s growth every day. From advising on new products to revising existing products - you’ll have the chance to build something that really matters. We’ll give you the freedom and tools to bring out your absolute best, and the opportunities will be limitless.
The breadth of work you will encounter (and level of commercial involvement) is pretty unique for an in-house role, from structuring credit programs to launching into new territories. We hire both generalists (typically corporate/commercial lawyers) as well as specialists (such as regulatory), alongside operations analysts, all of whom have a large degree of responsibility for Revolut’s ongoing development and growth.
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?
