Revolut to hire expert to build crypto exchange

Revolut is looking to hire a cryptocurrency expert to help build its own cryptocurrency exchange, according to a LinkedIn job advert.

The recently closed advert specified a candidate that had the experience to lead “a technical team to architect and build Revolut Crypto exchange.”.

Revolut said they wanted an executive with experience building order matching engines with a software engineering background, preferably with backend experience.

The London-based challenger bank also specified that the candidate should have experience leading and supervising teams of engineers as a team lead, product owner or manager, director, or vice president.

The news comes after Coinbase reported in October that Revolut is looking to release its own crypto token, which would be comparable to Binance’s BNB, as opposed to a stablecoin.

Revolut already offers limited cryptocurrency buying capacities on its platform.

The news comes after a period where the challenger banks valuation has grown rapidly; in July, Revolut confirmed a $800 million funding round at a $33 billion valuation.

This investment placed the challenger bank among Europe’s most valuable FinTechs.
