Check is a payroll-as-a-service API that lets you embed payroll directly in your vertical SaaS, HR, or time-tracking platform. Our API abstracts away the complexities of running payroll: tax calculation, remittance, and filing, plus the movement of money between companies and employees. This enables companies to easily build fully integrated payroll products to offer to their customers.

As Check continues to scale the number of companies and employees for which we provide payroll services, we are launching a dedicated risk operations team to oversee our company and transaction review processes. This team will be responsible for ensuring Check’s compliance with anti-money laundering and know-your-business requirements, as well as monitoring payrolls to reduce our payments risk.

For this role, we are looking for a risk operations lead with experience reviewing entities and transactions, an entrepreneurial mindset, and a desire to push forward our compliance and risk procedures. As an early team member, you will be responsible for maintaining and improving our risk-prevention systems and advising the risk committee on incidents. In addition, you will be tasked with driving operational and technical process improvements, leading our collections efforts for past due payment transactions, and working with our finance, compliance, legal, payroll operations, engineering and product teams to ensure we are well equipped to support our customers and minimize risk.

In this role, you will:

  • Manage our company and transaction review processes
  • Investigate and analyze our data to identify riskier classes of companies and transactions
  • Communicate the results of our reviews internally, including to the Risk committee, and externally to our partners and their customers
  • Organize Check’s efforts to collect on failed payment transactions, reaching out to our partners and their customers as  necessary
  • Develop, enhance, and scale our risk-prevention systems while iterating on pre-existing processes to minimize our risk and improve the team’s efficiency
  • Work closely with members of our finance, compliance, legal, payroll, engineering and product teams to continuously improve our risk infrastructure and systems

Many backgrounds could fit this role, but ideal candidates:

  • Have 2 - 5 years of experience in fraud prevention, risk-analysis, collections, and/or anti-money laundering compliance
  • Have worked at a fast-paced, data-driven tech company
  • Have strong communication skills
  • Enjoy analyzing data to discover common patterns and trends
  • Have an understanding of how APIs and payment transactions work
  • Are detailed-oriented and capable of managing a process from start to finish
  • Are eager to help develop new processes and iterate on existing ones
  • Enjoy working with members from across the organization
  • Are willing to travel to our SF and NYC hubs
  • Our team is distributed across the US, with hubs in New York City and San Francisco.
