About Revolut

People deserve more from their money. More visibility, more control, more freedom. And since 2015, Revolut has been on a mission to deliver just that. 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

At Revolut, we do Ops differently. Our hyper-talented Operations experts don’t just keep things ticking over. They're given the most complex, hard-to-solve problems in the business. Then they create elegant, scalable solutions that keep pace with our ambitious growth plans. Without our Ops team, we’d be following the herd, not leading the pack — and that’s a place we never want to be 🐑

We're looking for a Strategy & Operations Manager to help us solve the toughest problems in our global fintech. As a Finance Operations Manager, you'll play a pivotal role in optimising finance operations, enhancing control frameworks, and driving efficiency within our finance ecosystem. If you’re ready to roll up your sleeves and dive into the nitty-gritty of every area of a business to help our millions of customers worldwide, you might just be the person we need.
