Head of Compliance

At Bankera, we understand that compliance, including but not limited to anti-money laundering, data protection, and business conduct, is not a field to take unnecessary risks. It can be said that the easiest way to be compliant is not to do any business at all, but this is not our way. As the Head of Compliance, you will work with us to solve one of the biggest challenges faced by financial companies – how to stay compliant and competitive at the same time.

What to expect

  • Never walking alone as you will be a part of our legal team already consisting of more than 5 professionals
  • Working directly with the legal departments of international leaders, such as Visa and Mastercard, as a representative of a principal member
  • Participation in licensing projects around different jurisdictions, including Lithuania, Estonia, Malta, United Kingdom, and North America
  • In-house IT team which allows us to build a product around compliance, not compliance around legacy systems
  • Cutting-edge technology to conduct KYC (know-your-client), KYB (know-your-business) and KYT (know-your-transaction) due diligence

You should find it interesting to

  • Have a 360-degree view of the regulations that impact businesses
  • Understand new technologies and innovative products in-depth
  • See alternative ways to preconceptions on how legal requirements can be fulfilled
  • Obtain licenses in top jurisdictions and build regulated entities from scratch
  • Work together with business and IT teams to put compliance in practice
  • Lead legal audits (anti-money laundering, operational risk management and others) and communication with external auditors
  • Communicate with regulators in different jurisdictions
  • Automate various compliance processes

Requirements

  • University degree (preferably in Law)
  • Superb understanding of Lithuanian and European financial sector regulation
  • At least 3 years of experience in legal or compliance positions (preferably in banking or finance)
