Compliance is looking for a Blockchain Analytics Investigator to join our rapidly growing team. You will be a key member of the Global Compliance Team and will manage and conduct investigations using blockchain analytics tools to assess AML, sanctions, and other illicit finance related risks.

This role works closely with the Compliance Operations Director, the Compliance leadership team, and a variety of senior stakeholders across the company.

This is a position that will help continue to drive the culture of Compliance forward while supporting ongoing growth within Paxos.

About Paxos

Paxos is on a mission to enable the movement of any asset, any time, in a trustworthy way. Today's financial infrastructure is archaic, expensive, inefficient and risky - supporting a system that leaves out more people than it lets in. So we're rebuilding it.

As a regulated blockchain infrastructure company, we use technology to tokenize, custody, trade, and settle assets for enterprise clients like PayPal, Bank of America, and Interactive Brokers. Paxos is a top-funded blockchain company, with more than $500 million in total funding from leading investors like OakHC/FT, Founders Fund, PayPal Ventures, and Declaration Partners. Together, we empower today's financial leaders to build a more open, trusted economy.

As a Blockchain Analytics Investigator, you'll get to:

  • Propose innovative solutions by exploratory data analysis from complex and high-dimensional datasets, including on-chain data
  • Visualize the analysis into easy-to-consume storylines for stakeholders
  • Maintain a thorough understanding of AML and sanctions regulatory risks, including tracking regulatory developments that may affect blockchain monitoring.
  • Analyze blockchain data to identify patterns and trends in financial transactions, and communicate findings to a wide range of internal, and external stakeholders.
  • Your experience should include:

  • 3-5 years of prior experience in Compliance, and an understanding of BSA / AML, Sanctions, CDD / EDD, AML Transaction Monitoring and Reporting. Ideally, experience in QA or QC, Testing, M&T, or audit roles
  • 1-2 years of experience working with blockchain analytics providers to conduct investigations related to AML or Sanctions risks
  • Ability to identify areas of inefficiency and suggest enhancements that can make processes faster and more reliable
  • Technical proficiency with Excel/Sheets: ability to build usable reports and analyze data to identify process issues and inconsistencies
  • Strong analytical skills and can use data to inform your approach and inform your recommendations
  • You are comfortable working in a fast-paced and tech-oriented environment within a global team setting.
  • Strong attention to detail and passion for solving problems
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and oral
  • Excellent partnership and stakeholder management skills
  • While we are not requiring prior work in the fintech, crypto, or blockchain industries, candidates must demonstrate an aptitude for the space and show they can quickly understand our processes.
