We want brilliant people that love building great products, love redefining success, and love turning the complexity of a chaotic world into the simplicity of a beautiful solution.

About the role

The Legal team sits at the heart of Revolut and it’s a very important part of the business. This lovely bunch supports all other Revolut teams, helping us achieve our goals each and every day. They’re special, they’re strong-willed, and they work in a lot of different areas (which isn’t that common for an in-house role, we know, but they’re just that good) 🧠

From structuring credit programmes to launching into new territories, the Legal team does it all!
