Have a phone screen with Revolut; fintech startup valued at around $1.7 billion. Can anyone speak to their culture?

    That is unfortunate, seeing as the team is still being built there that should be expected. I will relay this to the team there.

      I think you lack an understanding of the global market.

      I think you’re in for a rude awakening.

      I think you're a bit upset from being rejected

      Not at all, like I said, I wish them luck, but companies like PayPal, Stripe, Coinbase, Venmo, and soon bulge banks that lend their architecture to all of these above will be in a similar payment/exchange/money movement space, and Revolut will be just another failed/acquired company in the sea of banks.

      You honestly sound like a naive, idealistic recent MBA grad. This convo will echo when the market kicks your teeth in and you’re wondering what went wrong.

      Also let me know when you have an actual rebuttal and/or facts to back up your point, kiddo.

    Very interested in the answer too.
    Any idea about IPO date?

      Their recruiting process is a bit... unique. I got the feeling they are a low paying startup from the phone interview. Multiple rounds, a GMAT math test, a take-home case study with PowerPoint presentation, then more interviews as you pass each stage.

      They do not discuss anything revolving around IPO.

    You got offered a low amount because that's what they believed you were worth.

      Exhibit B. The subject is upset because their company is going to fail and doesn’t have the capital to pay talent, only to farm cheap labor out to Russia. All of the negative things you read about them are true.

    The salt is strong in this one. Learn to deal with rejection better.

      This is an example of a Revolut employee, if you needed reference.

    Has the culture changed in recent times for London office?

      Can’t speak to the London office, but NYC seems extremely disorganized. Spoke to two people about a role and got conflicting descriptions of the same role each time. But each described London as “intense”.

    Also, the offer was $69k for a senior role. Get real or get out of NYC. Even 5 minutes of due diligence shows that most of Revolut is operating on cheap labor from Russia. Your chances of iterating at a faster pace than your competition with quality product is pretty much nil. But yea, good luck with your MBA loans ;)

      I see a lot of horror reviews about their London office. As I understand it, there currently isn’t really a NYC office to speak of, only core management, so I guess I’m wondering how different the NYC office culture is from the seemingly toxic London office.

      I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt though, that most people who write such reviews are usually the problem children themselves and like to point fingers.

      Happy to speak on that. In fact there is an NYC office (~20 people). London is tougher but it isn't as toxic as reviews claim. That being said, as someone who's basically visited most of the offices I'd add that these other offices try very hard to fix the negative stigma around Revolut.

      I’ll echo your sentiment and say I’ve only had a positive experience so far. I always take negativity with a grain of salt. Exciting that the NYC office is growing.
