Head of Compliance | Series A Crypto Startup

I am working with a rapidly expanding Series A Crypto startup, who are looking for a Head of Compliance to join the team (fully remote).

They have created a customer-centric payment product focused on using crypto where it matters most; for best saving and spending purposes. 

Every day, they confront several difficult and impactful problems which demand new solutions in tech, in product, in marketing, in advocacy. To achieve their mission and realize their vision, they have put together an incredible team and are selectively adding to it. 

As Head of Compliance, you will: 

  • Help solve complex money movement challenges, every day. 

  • Be responsible for building and managing a best-in-class financial compliance program and team, creating and modifying policies and procedures as necessary to keep up with changes in industry regulations. 

  • Work directly with regulators, auditors and company leadership to ensure they are proactive in its efforts to anticipate and satisfy compliance requirements in best faith. 

  • Coordinate closely with engineering, support and product leadership to ensure they always put user experience and security first while satisfying all relevant compliance requirements.

Required skills:

  • You have expert knowledge of compliance regulations and recent FATF and FINCEN decisions/guidance/policies related to cryptocurrency.

  • You have significant experience developing and managing a compliance function in the payments, fintech and/or banking industry.

  • You have experience directly interfacing with state and federal regulators.

  • You hustle! Your record shows that you thrive amidst multi-tasking and are risk-tolerant amidst ambiguity.

  • You consider discipline, integrity and unparalleled work ethic to be three of your core values.

  • You seek to translate every compliance decision into user impact. You strive to maintain simplicity, trust and minimalism in user experience.
