AML Analyst

Back to All Jobs

Coinbase has built the world's leading compliant cryptocurrency platform serving over 30 million accounts in more than 100 countries. With multiple successful products, and our vocal advocacy for blockchain technology, we have played a major part in mainstream awareness and adoption of cryptocurrency. We are proud to offer an entire suite of products that are helping build the cryptoeconomy and increase economic freedom around the world.

There are a few things we look for across all hires we make at Coinbase, regardless of role or team. First, we look for signals that a candidate will thrive in a culture like ours, where we default to trust, embrace feedback, disrupt ourselves, and expect sustained high performance because we play as a championship team. Second, we expect all employees to commit to our mission-focused approach to our work. Finally, we seek people with the desire and capacity to build and share expertise in the frontier technologies of crypto and blockchain, in whatever way is most relevant to their role.

The role of the AML Analyst is to support the Company and the MLRO in fulfilling their AML/CTF obligations as an Electronic Money Institution in Ireland.

The Compliance function, which forms part of our second line of defence, is independent from the business activities of Coinbase Ireland Limited (“Coinbase Ireland”) including any commercial, administrative or control functions in order to allow them to carry out their work freely and objectively. The AML Analyst will report directly to the Money Laundering Reporting Officer (“MLRO”) of Coinbase Ireland.

What you’ll be doing (ie. job duties):

  • Support the MLRO in relation to PEP and High Risk account reviews and the filing of Suspicious Transaction Reports
  • Assist Compliance management in preparing for internal and external examinations
  • Assist the Global Compliance team in responding to partner banks requests as they relate to Coinbase Ireland
  • Support MLRO in preparing the annual AML risk assessments
  • Assist in the preparation of management reporting as it relates to AML/CFT
  • Assist management with inquiries from employees, businesses, etc. by providing information and guidance in a timely manner
  • Review efficiency and effectiveness of the transaction monitoring process
    • Identify any existing gaps and make recommendations to enhance the suspicious activity reporting process and other AML related controls
    • Clearly summarize, document, and communicate findings and recommended action items in a timely manner to compliance management and/or other internal stakeholders when appropriate
    • Work closely with our Data and Tools teams on efforts to enhance monitoring tools and identify data usage for effective monitoring and investigations
  • Assist management in preparing the AML/CFT Compliance training for employees and BPO staff
  • Support the ongoing development of policies, procedures and processes that relate to AML/CFT
  • Responsible for conducting necessary due diligence on an ongoing basis in relation to Coinbase Ireland’s Fitness and Probity programme

What we look for in you (ie. job requirements):

  • Minimum of 3 years of relevant experience in Compliance, Banking or Financial Services
  • Excellent writing and verbal communications skills
  • Good organizational and time management skills
  • Ability to read, analyze and interpret regulatory requirements

Nice to haves:

  • A professional compliance or financial qualification would be advantageous but not a prerequisite (ACAMS, LCOI, ICA, etc.)
  • Advanced understanding of Google apps
