We’re looking for a Financial Crime & Fraud Analyst to join our small and highly collaborative team. This is a vital role to support with our onboarding and ongoing monitoring efforts.

You’ll do this in a truly innovative environment where you’ll have an opportunity to work on novel approaches to risk management with a team who truly care about doing the right thing for society by building products that create value for ordinary people while managing risk appropriately to avoid the exploitation of those products by bad actors and criminals.

We’re looking for someone who can:

  • Proactively investigate and conduct source of funds, associated due diligence and transactional analysis in relation to customer activity.

  • Cross examine systems to identify suspicious activity and trends that suggest unusual activity.

  • Report suspicious activity internally to the MLRO.

  • Help us develop an excellent user experience while keeping our users and society safe from harm, including detecting and managing both first-party and third-party fraud.

  • Ensure logs and registers are kept up to date.

  • Identify opportunities to improve the process and collaborating on changes with other functions.

  • Support in writing and updating procedural documentation.

You should apply if

  • You have 3+ years experience in financial crime or compliance roles, crypto experience is highly desirable.

  • You have prior experience in payments, working at a FinTech or prior working experience with crypto.

  • The idea of developing compliance frameworks, standards and practices in a new and emerging technology environment excites you.

  • You’d like to work directly with engineers and designers to build software and processes for compliance and financial crime.

  • You would enjoy the challenge of developing the function from the ground up in a new company working with a combination of in-house teams and world-class external consultants.

  • You’re comfortable in a fast-paced and minimally structured environment based around a shared mission and individual autonomy and responsibility.

We are absolutely committed to hiring people regardless of race, religion, colour, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age or disability.


We have a preference for someone in the Netherlands or in the United Kingdom within commuting distance of London. Within the UK and Europe we have team members in the UK, the Netherlands, Spain and Poland. This role is open to someone who already has the right to work in the EU or UK.
