Paxos is on a mission to enable the movement of any asset, any time, in a trustworthy way. Today’s financial infrastructure is archaic, expensive, inefficient and risky - supporting a system that leaves out more people than it lets in. So we’re rebuilding it. 

As a regulated blockchain infrastructure company, we use technology to tokenize, custody, trade, and settle assets for enterprise clients like PayPal, Novi, Bank of America, and Interactive Brokers. Paxos is a top-funded blockchain company, with more than $500 million in total funding from leading investors like OakHC/FT, Founders Fund, PayPal Ventures, and Declaration Partners. Together, we empower today’s financial leaders to build a more open, trusted economy.

We are looking for a Director of Compliance to join our Securities team!

As a Director of Compliance, you’ll get to:  

  • Stand up a Compliance program for a new U.S. equities clearing agency, including crafting all appropriate policies and procedures. 
  • Effectively coordinate with business and operational teams to advise on appropriate oversight, onboard clients, and respond to regulatory or audit inquiries.
  • Actively partner with global functional teams to execute shared compliance-specific projects and responsibilities.
  • Immerse yourself in blockchain technology, cryptocurrency for enterprises and investors, our regulation-first approach, and more!

Your experience should include:

  • 10+ years of compliance experience in the securities industry, preferably in the clearing and settlement space. 
  • 5+ years of experience hiring, training and managing a team
  • Strong writing capabilities where deliverables are to be reviewed by clients, regulators, auditors.
  • Experience with client onboarding and KYC.

You might also have:

  • Comfort with working in a fast-paced and tech-oriented environment. 
  • Experience with Excel / Google Sheets and data analytic tools is highly preferable.

What you’ll love about Paxos:

Paxos has consistently been named as a “Best Place to Work” by BuiltIn and was recently listed on the 2021 Forbes Fintech 50. All of our employees have significant ownership and impact on our business, as well as benefits like company equity, health insurance, family leave, a quarterly stipend for development, a stipend for home office setup and unlimited PTO. From team product demos and virtual lounge and learns to care packages and an active Slack #shoutouts channel, there are countless opportunities to connect and make your mark. Help us continue to build a new, open financial system from one of our three offices or right from your home!

An Insider's view of Paxos

What's something quirky about your company?

While Paxos is building serious products for serious businesses, we are definitely not serious all the time! We have an extremely collaborative culture and we’re big fans of get-to-know-you happy hours, trivia game nights and virtual karaoke bingo sessions. It's a great way for us to connect and be silly outside of the typical workplace hours.

Becky

Director of Communications

What does your typical day look like?

No day at Paxos is really "typical." However, most of my day is really focused on defining and helping us deliver on the incredible roadmap we have ahead of us.

This may involve working with engineering to size projects, chatting with clients and partners to get feedback on the new capabilities, and working with other internal teams.

Jamar

Senior Product Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

Our team is a great mix of personalities and backgrounds all strongly unified around our mission. To that end, a few key ingredients for success are listening, striving for excellence, and always operating with respect. I'll add that a sense of humor goes a long way!

Mina

Senior Director, Securities

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

High impact innovation tends to come in from the grassroots, so empowering individual contributors to experiment with new technologies and practices, then taking those viral successes and advocating broad adoption is key to organizational transformation and continuous innovation. Kotlin displaced Java at Paxos in exactly this way.

Huw

Director of Engineering & Site Lead

What are some things you learned at the company?

I love working in an environment where on the same day you might be digging into the internals of a new security device and then move on to creating mockups for a frontend feature, all while building part of our crypto custody platform.

There are so many opportunities to learn while being part of building next-generation financial infrastructure.

Senior Software Engineer
