About the Role
The Compliance Systems team works at the intersection of Data Science, Product and Compliance. The Systems team is looking for a Data Scientist / Senior Data Scientist with a background in statistics, machine learning and/or natural language processing to help us build and maintain models to describe and predict anomalous customer activity on Kraken’s platform.
The role will involve maintaining the transaction monitoring rules codebase, ensuring that requirements for model validation are met, and building a number of new models to enhance existing controls. There is significant scope for innovation in this role, and we are looking for someone who thrives in an environment of ‘freedom with responsibility’.
The ideal candidate would have some familiarity with the control systems used to comply with regulatory requirements under BSA/AML or AMLD 4+, but this is not required. A great candidate will be someone who has experience solving customer and behaviour profiling problems in an evolving data environment.
This role will contribute directly to Kraken’s ability to build best-in-class systems for detecting financial crime and will enable us to continue to meet regulators’ expectations for a robust monitoring and control program.
Partner with Compliance operations, Product, Engineering and other stakeholders to build descriptive and predictive models to identify anomalous activity.
Maintain the existing transaction monitoring rules codebase.
Ensure that all activities meet model validation requirements.
Design and build proof-of-concept models to test hypotheses and help with idea generation and refinement.
Use structured and unstructured data to enrich transaction monitoring metadata.
Drive cross functional projects from beginning to end: build relationships with partner teams.
Communicate model methodology and results to operations teams and Compliance leadership.
Develop anomaly detection and data modelling tools to monitor key performance indicators to improve the efficiency of models.
3-5+ years industry experience in data science or analytics if you hold a Masters or PhD in Statistics, Computer Science, Physical Sciences, Economics, Math or other computational fields
A consistent track record of performing data analysis using Python, R, SQL or other CLI tools.
Experience using statistics and predictive analytics to solve complex business problems.
Versatility and willingness to learn new technologies on the job.
The ability to clearly communicate complex results to technical and non-technical audiences.
Nice to have
Familiarity with cloud native and distributed processing would be a strong plus (for example Kubernetes)
Familiarity with financial crime and market abuse typologies is a plus.
We’re powered by people from around the world with their own unique and diverse experiences. We value all Krakenites and their talents, contributions, and perspectives, regardless of their background.
As an equal opportunity employer we don’t tolerate discrimination or harassment of any kind.
