About Revolut

When Revolut was founded in 2015, we had a vision to build a sustainable, digital alternative to traditional big banks. Our mission now is to help our customers improve their financial health, empower them to have more control, and promote financial cohesion across the communities in which we operate.

Job Description


The finance team is the backbone of Revolut’s business. The department has grown from its initial internal accounting remit to a major function that supports all areas of the business, including assessing financial implications from various key strategic decisions and growth opportunities. When you join the finance team you get the opportunity to interact with all areas of the company: one day you are involved in a banking license application process, the next you are running analysis for a new product launch, and the next you are working on an executive summary of Revolut’s performance for the board of directors.


We are looking for an independent and result-oriented Chief Financial Officer (PCF-11) for our new Wealth & Trading entity in Dublin, Ireland.  Ideally, you will have experience working in the finance function of a broker. You will ensure the Finance function at Revolut is structured such that it allows the company to continue to grow in a fast but controlled manner. As part of the Finance team you will provide vision and ideas, and will tackle any problem that may arise as well as have the ability to roll your sleeves up and get involved.
