APAC Compliance Officer Melbourne Singapore

We are looking for an experienced compliance professional to join our Financial Crimes team as APAC Compliance Officer and Money Laundering Reporting Officer (MLRO). In this role, you’ll manage a wide variety of anti-money laundering (AML) and regulatory compliance matters supporting Stripe’s growing business in the Asia Pacific region. You’ll also be responsible for standing up Stripe’s Financial Crimes Program in APAC, working closely with Stripe’s U.S. and EMEA Compliance Officers.

Stripe is both a technology company and a financial services company, and you will need to be comfortable straddling both of those worlds every day. The right person for the role will enjoy dealing with that puzzle, seeking creative solutions and moving quickly, often in the face of ambiguity.

You will:

  • Oversee financial crimes compliance for Stripe’s APAC business
  • Provide guidance to the business teams on existing and upcoming regulatory requirements and potential product changes as a result
  • Serve as named MLRO on Stripe’s regulatory licenses in APAC markets
  • Build and maintain Stripe’s relationship with the APAC regulators, including the Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre (AUSTRAC)
  • Build and maintain Stripe’s relationship with financial crimes counterparts at our partner financial institutions
  • Build and oversee Stripe’s Financial Crimes Program in APAC which includes:
  • Identifying, scoping, and building streamlined end-to-end processes to support traditional compliance requirements, including OFAC, AML investigations, KYC, and CDD
  • Creating, updating, and maintaining appropriate policies and procedures to govern Stripe’s APAC business
  • Hiring and managing a team of financial crime compliance professionals
  • Consulting with the business on financial crimes implications of new products, services, and markets, and work to scope them accordingly
  • Reporting to the boards of Stripe’s APAC entities on compliance matters
  • Collaborate with US Compliance Officer, EMEA Compliance Officer, and other senior team leadership to provide strategic planning on team growth, including quarterly and yearly priorities
  • Work closely with engineering and analytics teams to build new compliance products and monitoring functionality

Our ideal candidate will have:

  • 10+ years of experience in an AML / CFT role
  • 3+ years people management experience
  • Demonstrated experience executing on complex Financial Crimes initiatives
  • Comfort juggling numerous aspects of an AML / CTF compliance program
  • Ability to work efficiently and independently in a fast-paced, high-volume environment
  • Ability to work cross-functionally with internal stakeholders
  • An effective and relatable “culture of compliance” mentality

Nice to haves:

  • Payments or fintech experience
  • Related regulatory experience, such as anti-bribery and corruption, payments, international policy, or audit
  • Familiarity with MacOS and Google products
  • CAMS or CFE certification

We look forward to hearing from you.
