We are looking for a Sr. Manager of Compliance Operations to join our rapidly growing FinTech company. The Senior Manager of Compliance Operations in the US will be a results-oriented compliance professional who can lead a team of SMEs to sustainably implement compliance controls, regulatory obligations, protect our company from financial crimes, and be able to thrive in a high growth tech startup environment.
Paxos is on a mission to enable the movement of any asset, any time, in a trustworthy way. Today’s financial infrastructure is archaic, expensive, inefficient and risky - supporting a system that leaves out more people than it lets in. So we’re rebuilding it.
As a regulated blockchain infrastructure company, we use technology to tokenize, custody, trade, and settle assets for enterprise clients like PayPal, Novi, Bank of America, and Interactive Brokers. Paxos is a top-funded blockchain company, with more than $500 million in total funding from leading investors like OakHC/FT, Founders Fund, PayPal Ventures, and Declaration Partners. Together, we empower today’s financial leaders to build a more open, trusted economy.
As a Sr. Manager of Compliance Operations, you’ll get to:
- Oversee implementation of all operational objectives of the Compliance program, including transaction monitoring and investigations, client onboarding and customer due diligence, SAR writing, sanctions screening, etc.
- Scale the compliance operations team to support business growth in line with sustainable risk management and compliance support
- Manage and develop key metrics to determine the health of the compliance program
- Oversee end-to-end investigations on a range of cases triggered from KYC/CDD, sanctions screening, transaction monitoring and blockchain analytics.
- Use transactional and other data to identify trends and patterns associated with financial crime risks.
- Effectively manage with business, operational teams and law enforcement throughout the client customer lifecycle to detect and mitigate financial crime risks.
Your experience should include:
- 7+ years of financial crime compliance team management experience
- A fundamental understanding of AML, KYC and Sanctions regulations
- Experience overseeing multiple Compliance functions, including transaction monitoring, sanctions screening, client onboarding and KYC
- Strong writing capabilities where deliverables are to be reviewed by regulators, auditors and law enforcement
- Experience managing operational data sets including reporting KPIs/KRIs to leadership
- You are comfortable working in a fast-paced and tech-oriented environment within a global team setting
- You embody our culture and values.
