We are building cutting edge solutions that help reveal the truth for a safer world and stop money ending up in the hands of terrorists.

About Us

Since launching in 2014, we have been on a mission to neutralize the risk of money laundering, terrorist financing, corruption, and other financial crime on a global scale. In that time, we have raised over $100m in funding, have four global hubs located in New York, London, Singapore and Cluj-Napoca and are backed by Ontario Teachers’, Index Ventures, Balderton Capital and Goldman Sachs.

We aim to grow to over 350 employees in the next 12 months, as we continue to fight the good fight against financial crime and help make compliance less painful for our client base of over 500 enterprises across 75 different countries. We’re leveraging game-changing tech to help us on our mission as the financial industry’s leading source of AI-driven financial crime risk data and detection technology.

  • No fight against crime is complete without the right values, and we take ours very seriously!
  • Focus on the Team - We’re Collaborative, Human, and Humble
  • Kaizen - We’re Curious, Proactive and Agile
  • Deliver Results - We’re Tenacious, Accountable and Focused
  • We can only defeat financial crime if we have the right people with the right values in place to do so, and we’re committed to investing in passionate people who are experts in their field.

The role

You will join the Platform and API team, which is responsible for exposing our data to customers via API and UI, and helping our customers to get quick and accurate information.  As the team grows with hiring through 2021 and beyond, we need to increase our manager population to ensure that the people we hire have strong management support to help them thrive within our teams.

As Engineering Manager, you’ll be managing the Engineering Lead and all the developers within your teams.   You will be the hiring manager for all open positions within your team, and be responsible for hiring decisions as well as being involved in some stages of the interview process.

You will take an interest in the technical direction of the team, and are responsible for sound decisions being made by the Engineering Lead and others within the teams.

You will report to the Director of Engineering, and will work with the other Engineering Managers in the team.  Working as a group, you will own cross-team initiatives and improvements.

  • What does success look like in your first 6 months?
  • You will have successfully taken on management of the Rules Evaluation team, including growing the team by filling the currently open positions within that team.
  • You will have an established working relationship with the other engineering managers, and be successfully contributing to the cross-team projects.
  • You will be supporting new developers joining your team, ensuring that you create a high-performing, diverse team.
