*A LITTLE ABOUT US*
From clunky apps to hidden fees, banking is broken. So we decided to build a company from the ground that would challenge the bigger players and reinvent how people interact with their money — for the better.
Traditional banks are slow and expensive. Realistically, you’re nothing but a number to them with dollar signs attached. So, one continent at a time, we plan on changing this.

*OUR CULTURE*
To put it bluntly — it’s about getting shit done and owning what you do. We don’t hide behind fancy job titles or set up bureaucratic processes. Instead we treat our people equally, fairly and give them a ton of freedom and autonomy to create something awesome.
We make mistakes, we learn from them and we back everything up with data and logic.
In three years, we’ve grown to over 700 people and we’re adding around 30 new additions each month. From engineers to marketers, we’re on the hunt for exceptional talent to help us scale our business and get Revolut in the hands of millions of people everywhere.

We are looking for Data Scientists who know how to solve the big problems with the right solution.

*WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING*
Delivering real impact to the product through rigorous data-driven solutions
Researching and building productionisable models with or without machine learning
Collaborating with product owners, engineers and data scientists to improve data infrastructure and contribute to a seamless research platform

*WHAT SKILLS YOU'LL NEED*
* Bachelor's/Master's/PhD in STEM (Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Engineering, Economics)
* Proven experience in developing Python applications
