  • Maintain updated knowledge on relevant BSA / AML regulations and upcoming regulatory changes
  • Assist as needed with all account review types, as well as serve as an escalation point for more junior team members
  • Develop metrics and forecasting around review load, team member efficiency and productivity
  • Communicate effectively with internal and external stakeholders, including sales and engineering teams, financial partners and regulators, and Stripe users
  • Provide leadership, mentorship, and growth opportunities for team members in your organization

Our ideal candidate will have:

  • Expertise in AML and regulatory compliance
  • 6+ years of experience in a compliance operations or operations management role
  • 2+ years of people management experience
  • A “do it all” mentality and comfort handling a vast array of operational processes
  • Ability to work efficiently and independently in a fast-paced, high-volume environment
  • Ability to work cross-functionally with internal stakeholders
  • Excel or SQL abilities

Nice to haves:
