Shaping relationship with the local tech and banking community while building a talent pool
Revolut participates in professional events dedicated to technical professionals in several countries, mainly to engage with local tech communities and enthusiasts in key cities around Europe where Revolut has offices. The roles proposed to the Romanian professionals are mainly remote-based, and the employees have the opportunity of working for global projects, in multinational teams, developing the future Revolut products and features, used by over 30 million customers worldwide.
RevDev meetups have already been organised in Poland (Krakow), Spain (Barcelona and Madrid) and Portugal (Porto) and in the last 2 years gathered over 500 participants. As fintech, banks, and tech companies have been cutting their workforce in recent months, Revolut has been recruiting hundreds of the best and brightest employees in different industries. The company more than doubled its workforce in 2022 to more than 6,000 and intends to fill a further 1,000 roles in 2023 and reach over 7,000 total employees by the end of the year.
Recently, the company also opened globally positions for a new banking product that will be developed in the future – mortgage credit. The roles include Mortgage Product Managers, Mortgage Credit Managers, Business Compliance Managers, Software Engineers, Technical Product Managers, and some of them are accessible to the Romanian candidates too. The new roles continue Revolut’s mission to create a community of forward-thinking people that are personally and professionally invested in building the global super app’s mortgage offering.
