Job Description

At Remitly, we help people around the world send over $6 billion around the globe inspired by our mission to accomplish our promise to immigrants to send money across the world. Sending money is faster, easier, and costs less with our all-digital money transfer platform. We want to transform the lives of immigrants and their families by providing the most trusted financial service products on the planet. At Remitly, your work has a direct and positive impact on people around the globe. Your work matters, every day.

As an online money transmitter, Remitly is growing while maintaining high customer service, performance and compliance standards. Remitly is a licensed financial services company in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, Singapore, and Ireland. Each of these jurisdictions requires, among other items, that Remitly maintain a comprehensive Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing program.

The Role:

This role will report to the Global Compliance team and primarily support Remitly’s obligation to oversee its financial partners.

A typical day would include coordination with external partners to collect due diligence documents, analyzing partner compliance programs for risks, drafting due diligence reports, organizing supporting documentation, discussing technical compliance matters with partner compliance teams, responding to due diligence review requests from partners, and monitoring adverse media alerts.

As needed, this role may also support other regulatory compliance tasks such as leading compliance monitoring reviews, pulling reports for regulatory reporting, assisting in onsite compliance reviews at partner headquarters, and preparing responses to law enforcement requests.

We are looking for exceptional people who are willing to roll up their sleeves in a fast-paced technology environment. The successful candidate must excel as a self-starter and work well with cross-functional teams in a remote environment.
