Revolut is to open a new tech hub in Berlin creating about 80 new jobs, including software engineers, data scientists, product managers, and marketing experts.
Set to open in October this year, the new hub will provide Revolut with a direct presence on the turf of local rival N26.
The company already lays claim to some 15,000 customers in Germany and plans to use the new location to localise its products and services for the German and European markets.
Reinforcing its fintech credentials, the facility will be located in the trendy startup location of Friedrichstraße, home to a large tech talent pool
“There is an incredible amount of technical talent in Berlin, as we begin to scale our operations globally and expand our range of services, finding this kind of talent will be essential,” says Vlad Yatsenko, co-founder and CTO at Revolut. “We’re excited to begin our investment in Germany and create even more jobs in Berlin’s vibrant fintech ecosystem.”
