Senior Software Engineer - Data Insights
We are looking for multiple driven, talented Senior and Principal Software Engineers to join our Adverse Information and Media Team, with the opportunity to work fully remote, to help us build our SaaS-based anti-money laundering solution to help organizations prevent financial crime!
We are building cutting edge solutions that help reveal the truth for a safer world and stop money from ending up in the hands of terrorists.
Since launching in 2014, we have been on a mission to fight financial crime on a global scale. In that time, we have raised over $85m in funding, opened offices in New York, Singapore and Romania, and have grown to over 200 employees, and we're not stopping there!
We can only defeat financial crime if we have people who are experts in their field and who share our core values, which we take very seriously!
Focus on the Team We're Collaborative, Human, and Humble
Kaizen We're Curious, Proactive and Agile
Deliver Results We're Tenacious, Accountable and Focused
You will join as a Senior Software Engineer working alongside our ML engineers, data scientists and other software engineers responsible for our Adverse Information and Media product.
You'll write new features that enable our platform to understand articles in the media, extract information about individuals, apply ML models to categorise their actions, and merge all this with existing data we hold. Your work will allow our customers to find out who has done something bad, what they did, and when.
You will join one of our scrum teams and help us to make the right technical and architectural decisions as we evolve and scale our systems. As a senior developer, we will look to you to sometimes take the lead in these discussions and bring your own ideas as well as solicit and incorporate ideas from others in the team.
We pride ourselves on having an open and collaborative environment within the teams, and as well as working on your own code, you will help and coach others with their work. You will contribute to the overall success of the team, with a focus on the team rather than individual delivery.
Within the team, we look to developers to take responsibility for the quality of their code. Developers are expected to write tests and take ownership of the systems that ensure our code's quality. You will take part in this and coach others in the team end to end - from requirements through to production support.
What does success look like in your first 6 months?
You contributed to delivering your team's roadmap with high quality. You've helped achieve this by collaborating with other team members, and proactively given or asked for help. You've identified when reaching out to others outside the team is relevant, and taken steps to include them.
You can explain to others the main problem we're trying to solve for our users for the product capabilities the AIM team owns, including where it integrates with other ComplyAdvantage systems. You know some of our customers and understand their most significant pain points. You know our future direction and participate in sprint reviews, design meetings and keep up to date with the product research.
You will have contributed your ideas to the architectural evolution of the platform and seen your ideas implemented.
You are continuously researching tools, technologies and practices. You are able to distinguish between what is hype and what is valuable, and you have solid arguments in favour of your proposals.
You can guide the team towards the established goals. Your colleagues have come to value your technical advice, and you are able to identify areas that need improving and drive those improvements.
Who we are looking for
We value those who take the initiative and pride in their work and contribute to a positive working environment. You will be able to deliver on the points covered above, taking into account the following:
- Experienced coder in a range of languages and paradigms, with the ability to coach/mentor juniors.

- Ownership of software from idea inception to production.
- Experience working with tooling for testing, build and deployment pipelines (setting it up is a plus)
