“Revolut already stands for modern technology in the financial sector. Now we want to become the top-of-mind brand for all those who want to get their finances under control and look for better financial well-being. With effective scaling of brand content and a multitude of innovative marketing and communication campaigns, we want to continue to increase our brand awareness and grow beyond our current 5 million customers in the CEE region. For this purpose, we will activate high-reach channels such as TV and broadcasting – among others. I’m thrilled and look forward to achieving this goal in close cooperation with the Revolut Bank Team in Lithuania, Revolut Group Team in London and local teams in CEE locations. As a Lithuanian living in Berlin I’m excited to become a part of the Revolut team and look forward to working with my colleagues across the CEE to give the region another big boost to growth” – said Aleksej Koscejev, Head of Growth CEE at Revolut.
Revolut has been traditionally strong across CEE markets, including Romania and Poland where the local user communities long ago exceeded 1 million customers. Revolut became also an attractive employer for talents across the CEE region – with Revolut’s largest offices in EU located in Cracow, Poland and Revolut Bank headquarters located in Vilnius, Lithuania. The company introduced a hybrid home office scheme at the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020, enabling its employees in CEE to work flexibly and decide day by day whether they prefer to work from home, in the office or even abroad – for up to two months a year. Revolut is looking for candidates interested in numerous open roles in the local teams and fully remote positions across CEE.
