PayPal is looking for a new addition to its Global Financial Crimes (GFC) organization.
According to a job opening posted on its website, the financial service company announced that GFC is looking for an “AML expert with deep experience in blockchain technology.”
“This role also requires deep subject matter expertise in investigative practices and proven success in partnering with the business to drive innovative solutions that are balanced by best-in-class risk management,” the job post read.
The successful candidate will be responsible for evaluating blockchain use cases and in overseeing AML investigative activities and emerging trends in the industry. The responsibilities also include providing day-to-day advisory to the business and product owners to assist with mitigating AML risks and market expansion focusing on blockchain-related opportunities.
The job position also requires the successful candidate to regularly review AML-related reporting, provide clear and succinct communication both verbally and in writing to all levels of management and staff, develop relationships and work collaboratively with cross-functional groups and leaders, and lead external partner diligence meetings related to blockchain opportunities.
PayPal has high standards for the job post. It requires a minimum 10 years of AML, Compliance, law enforcement or similar experience. A prior position in a financial firm leveraging blockchain technology and a detailed understanding of cryptocurrency risks, controls and evolving landscape are a must.
PayPal provides equal employment opportunities to anyone interested in the position regardless of age, color, nationality, citizenship status, race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, marital status and any other characteristic protected by federal, state or local law.
PayPal has been actively researching about blockchain technology. It even supported Facebook’s proposed stablecoin Libra. However, it backed out of the Libra Association.
PayPal CEO Dan Schulman explained that the decision to back out was not due to the strict regulatory scrutiny that Libra received but was more about aligning their choices and attention to advance their mission.
