Does this sound like your cup of tea?

  • Respond to internal and external investigations, regulatory enquiries and disputes
  • Use advanced data analytics to develop and optimize client surveillance systems; define and implement data management strategies and frameworks to support effective surveillance processes and controls
  • Leverage artificial intelligence and machine learning to create and improve transaction monitoring systems
  • Identify conflicts of interest and perform client risk scoring, adverse media screening, front to back assessment and validation of financial crime surveillance and related operating models

Who we are looking for

  • You’re a curious, reliable and efficient problem solver, analytical and conceptual thinker and fast learner with strong communication, teamwork and organization skills, integrity, and a high attention to details
  • University degree (e.g. Master in computer science, natural sciences, engineering, economics, law or similar field) with IT skills in programming, software engineering, proficiency in analytical programming languages (i.e. Python, SQL, R, Scala), expertise in data management disciplines (i.e. data modelling, data quality, master data management) and how they can be used to help organizations to combat financial crime; ability to understand and assess artificial intelligence and machine learning models
  • Experience (e.g. from past internships or relevant work in financial services or FinTech) in the area of financial crime, ideally in/with know-your-customer (KYC), anti-money-laundering (AML), FATCA, automatic exchange of information (AEI), transaction monitoring as well as client risk scoring (CRS)
  • Fluent in English (German and/or French would be an additional advantage)
