At Plaid, our mission is to unlock financial freedom for everyone. There has never been a better time than now to start building the future of fintech with us. Plaid powers the tools millions of people rely on to live a healthier financial life. We work with thousands of companies like Venmo and SoFi, several of the Fortune 500, and many of the largest banks to make it easy for people to connect their financial accounts to the apps and services they want to use. Plaid’s network covers 11,000 financial institutions across the US, Canada, UK and Europe. Founded in 2013, the company is headquartered in San Francisco with offices in New York, Salt Lake City, Washington D.C., London and Amsterdam.
We are looking for an AML Officer who wants to build a best-in-class AML compliance program at a fast-growing FinTech. You will report directly to the Head of Regulatory Compliance and will have significant autonomy to define, implement, and scale our AML program. You'll build our strategy and help define the processes for managing AML and related risks across Plaid--all while seeing around corners and connecting dots in a way that allows Plaid to onboard customers, manage risk, and enable the business better than our peers.
In this role, you’ll partner with Plaid’s Money Movement business, as well as other internal stakeholders across Plaid’s Corporate Development, Risk, and Legal teams. You’ll serve as a point of escalation within Plaid to make hard decisions about what we are and are not comfortable with. You’ll help us optimize our risk underwriting process, allowing us to onboard customers quickly and carefully. You’ll also engage with various external stakeholders, including bank partners, payment processing partners, customers, auditors, and (as necessary) regulators and law enforcement.
We’re looking for the sort of person who is equally comfortable presenting to senior leaders as they are rolling up their sleeves and diving into the details on individual processes and customers. If you’re interested in a forward-thinking role within an ambitious and dynamic company and are comfortable working in an ambiguous regulatory landscape, let’s chat!
