We’re the banking app that believes in small businesses.
Our company is looking for a Financial Crimes Specialist to join our growing team as we enter a new phase of expansion 🚀 We are a Toronto, New York, Portland, and San Francisco-based startup at the heart of the FinTech movement that is shaping the way financial services are delivered. We are backed by some of the best VCs in the world (Battery, Redpoint, Tom Williams and more) and are growing fast.
Our company’s purpose is to eliminate the pain that small business owners face through financial management and banking. Poor financial literacy has an outsized impact on the costs and failure rates amongst small businesses, especially among the marginalized and less fortunate, and we are on a mission to solve these problems. We are more than a banking platform – we are the world-class Finance Department that most small businesses could never afford.
NorthOne is a mobile, tech-powered account built for startups, freelancers, and small/medium-sized businesses (SMBs). We’re rebuilding business banking from the ground up. Imagine you could start with a clean slate and think of a different way to deliver banking to small businesses. What would you change? How can you help them? These are the decisions that we make every day.
We ❤️ compliance. As a Financial Crimes Specialist, you'll join our Fraud Monitoring team during an exciting period of NorthOne’s history, and help support us in our scale and product growth. Reporting to our Head of Compliance, you’ll benefit from our experienced management team, who have already created and exited startups and come from leadership roles at brands like Square, McKinsey, Google, Frank and Oak, Strava, Instacart, Prodigy, eBay and more.
We’re building a product that solves real pain vs the imagined kind. Small businesses are the bedrock of every community and of the American economy. Their storytelling potential is endless, they have been underserved by banking and fintech for far too long, and you’ll be their champion. Ready to start?
WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING
- Conducting account reviews/investigations and managing the day-to-day operational processes across various fraud/AML workflows
- Collaborating with external partners to support NorthOne’s Compliance program
- Acting as an owner of workflow processes - we’re always looking to make things better, and we’re scaling fast!
- Be a risk manager by using your on-the-ground knowledge to identify and highlight emerging areas of risk
Today you might be a Risk Analyst, Fraud Investigator, Fraud Analyst, AML Specialist, or the equivalent in your company...or something that we haven’t heard of yet - we keep an open mind. The most important characteristic of our Financial Crimes Specialist is your attitude. We want you to join because you don't see roadblocks, you see opportunities to be at your best.
The skills required for this role
- 1-3 years of experience working in fin-tech or banking compliance operations (KYC/KYB, AML, beneficial ownership, sanctions/PEP, transaction monitoring)
- You understand the AML Compliance requirements affecting fin-tech companies
- You have an eye for detail when you’re conducting reviews quickly and accurately
- You get giddy and proactive when it comes to program and process improvements
- You have a keen attention to detail, and like digging into the weeds to find the source of a problem
- You thrive in a fast-paced, geographically-distributed environment
- You’re familiar with business intelligence tools (Looker, Tableau, Periscope, Redash, Mode, etc)
- You have experience working closely with product teams and have supported a product roadmap to identify and implement product controls
- You know your way around a fraud review and understand how AML and fraud intersect/diverge
- You’ve worked in a scaling startup and have successfully navigated rapid growth (you are a fighter!)

- The latest computer equipment: We make sure you have the best equipment so you can produce great work.
