Floating Point Group is on a mission to bring institutional-grade services to the cryptocurrency markets. By abstracting away the complexity of interfacing with hundreds of different trading venues (each with their own idiosyncratic designs) while simultaneously pooling liquidity from across these venues, FPG's services enable hedge funds, asset managers, and institutional investors to participate in these nascent markets with unprecedented confidence and efficiency. With cryptocurrency trading volume routinely breaching $100 billion in 24hr trading volume, the need for robust trading infrastructure is more salient than ever. We offer our clients the first consolidated product for ingesting data, achieving best execution, and automated trade settlement in the cryptocurrency markets.
We're looking for a Compliance Officer who has a superb track record of acquiring licensing and implementing responsible monitoring practices. You will play a key role in establishing and maintaining the compliance standards that our customers, business partners, and regulators expect of us, owning the huge responsibility of acquiring our money transmitter (and other) licenses, interacting with regulators, and implementing best practices anti-money laundering efforts.
Defining the future of financial regulation with FinCEN, the SEC, and CFTC.
You'll work hand-in-hand with the regulators to help establish the norms of a new regulatory structure for an emerging and poorly-understood asset class: cryptocurrency, while driving our regulatory licensing process in the current environment.
Work with a talented, ambitious, and creative technology-centric team.
You'll be collaborating across the organization to champion the implementation of forward-thinking and prescient monitoring processes to ensure we catch problems before they happen and to react with exceptional speed and clarity when we don't.
Learn and grow at a breakneck pace as our company rapidly scales.
As an early team member, you will have an incredible degree of autonomy, it's something we intentionally build into our workflow. We expect that you not only take ownership of your work but that you have an appetite for doing so and ask for more. As our business continues to grow, your responsibilities will inevitably follow suit - the organization is expected to double in size in the next three to six months and our compliance department with it.
You’ve applied for and received a money transmitter license or broker-dealer registration.
You have extensive experience with the careful and iterative process that is applying for a regulatory license. You have a keen sense of the difficulties to expect relating to helping regulators understand a new and unfamiliar product/industry vertical.
You’ve worked on a high-velocity team.
You understand how to scale the rapidly expanding compliance needs of a business, focusing on driving efficiency, without exceeding your operational budget.
You can recognize and advocate for responsible innovation.
You are a champion of responsibility within the organization. You strive to enable innovation within the world of financial services rather than simply defaulting to whichever solution requires the least amount of work.
