Since 2011, we’ve had a clear mission: money without borders. Built by and for people who live global lives, we’re the fairest, easiest way to manage your money across borders.

We’re just at the beginning of our story and we’re growing at an incredible pace. We won’t stop until anyone, anywhere can send, spend and receive money wherever they are, whatever they’re doing. There’s still heaps to do and we can’t do it alone.

We’re looking for a Compliance analyst.  Based in London, Tallinn or Budapest, you will work with a growing team of multidisciplinary Compliance and Product specialists to help build world class regulatory oversight metrics. You’ll work with product teams and peers in other regional offices, to develop metrics that will showcase the effectiveness of our compliance programme through data. The data will also help to inform us of where there are problems to fix. To achieve this, you will need to collaborate with operational teams across the organisation to find data and metrics that they use to measure their successes.

Your mission:

  • Working with Compliance oversight to identify data and information needs and turn them into functional data requirements.
  • Identify appropriate data sources from multiple teams and build on top of these to create valuable regulatory risk metrics.
  • Liaise with various teams of Wisers on the definition of data points in reports and data feeds
  • Generate and quality assure custom reports, looker dashboards,  data extraction or analysis summarizing Reg KPIs.
  • Extract and analyse regulatory risk data arising out of the risk assessments and build custom reports and dashboards to enable data driven decision making as well as perform quality checks on data extracted.
  • Analyze comparative data and present regional and global reports related to compliance risk assessments and monitoring of compliance related issues. These reports will be used within our governance and to help inform our Board on compliance health.
  • Advice on data aspects and/or techniques that can be used to exploit additional data opportunities to showcase effective oversight management or that can be used to resolve issues arising out of the data ineffectiveness
  • Develop and refine compliance metrics reporting methodology and ongoing monitoring and evaluation of the risk landscape to mitigate potential data quality gaps and control deficiencies.

This role will give you the opportunity to:

  • Develop an in-depth knowledge of Wise’s business and get to know many teams across the company as you liaise with them to help them understand the regulatory framework and bring together the information that our regulators need.
  • Develop a framework to better communicate regulatory health, risk appetite and monitoring and testing outcomes to teams, helping them correctly engage with the data to strengthen our regulatory compliance at group level.
  • Take on and own new projects that arise in any area of the compliance programme on a project basis. Take a problem-solving approach, proactively contributing to, own, create, track quantitative risk outcomes for your compliance team, identifying emerging risks that impact them.

A bit about you:

You can show that you’re a proactive communicator with a passion for operational efficiency, tech and the spirit of compliance, and how data can help. You should be able to demonstrate:

  • Could be a reg specialist that did some left learning when it comes to BI.
  • Work experience in compliance, risk or audit.
  • You have a proven track record of working as a data or product analyst, preferably in a tech company with product managers, designers and engineers
  • You are proficient in SQL with plenty of experience in delivering hands-on technical projects
  • A strong ability to organise, prioritise and multitask and an ability to communicate priorities effectively to others
  • You have a strong track record of applying quantitative analysis to see beyond the numbers, generate actionable insights and drive the adoption of your proposed changes by influencing stakeholders.
  • You know your way around an analytics stack: you have worked with data warehouses (Snowflake, BigQuery, Redshift etc.), ETL/ELT (Airflow, DBT etc.) and data visualization tools (Looker, PowerBI, Tableau etc.)
  • Fun to work with, detail-oriented and results driven

Some extra skills that would be great (but not essential):

  • Experience in working at a fast growing scale-up, FinTech or payment compliance
  • You have a good understanding of statistics (probability, distributions, hypothesis testing)
  • You’re proficient with Python, able to automate complex processes and construct robust data pipelines

What we offer in return:

  • Competitive base salary
  • Generous stock options package
  • Lots of awesome Wise benefits
  • Please note applications for this role will be reviewed w/c 3rd January
  • We’re people without borders — without judgement or prejudice, too. We want to work with the best people, no matter their background. So if you’re passionate about learning new things and keen to join our mission, you’ll fit right in.
  • Also, qualifications aren’t that important to us. If you’ve got great experience, and you’re great at articulating your thinking, we’d like to hear from you.
  • And because we believe that diverse teams build better products, we’d especially love to hear from you if you’re from an under-represented demographic.
