With an arsenal of awesome products that span spending, saving, travel, transfers, investing, exchanging and more, we've helped 45+ million customers get more from their money. And we're not done yet.

As we continue our lightning-fast growth,‌ two things are essential to continuing our success: our people and our culture. We've been officially certified as a Great Place to Work™ in recognition of our outstanding employee experience! So far, we have 10,000+ people working around the world, from our great offices or remotely, on our mission. And we're looking for more. 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 Financial Crime Operations department is at the forefront of Revolut’s efforts to keep customers and their money safe 🥷 Those ninjas work directly with customers to resolve issues and flag potential concerns. Using cutting edge technology, we aim to prevent financial crime in a way the banking world hasn’t seen so far 💫

We're looking for analysts that can use all the tools available to see the bigger picture - someone that can not only identify suspicious activity where apparent, but is also able to ensure we are treating customers fairly.

The main responsibility will be conducting investigations into internal SAR's and complex cases, by applying judgement, analytical skills and solid decision making to identify where grounds for suspicion of Money Laundering or Terrorist Financing exists.

As the FIU plays a crucial role in ensuring Revolut meets its business, legal and regulatory obligations, there might be some changes of schedule in this role outside of standard business hours, including weekend/night/afternoon shifts.
