We are building cutting edge solutions that help reveal the truth for a safer world and stop money ending up in the hands of terrorists.

 About Us

Since launching in 2014, we have been on a mission to fight financial crime on a global scale. In that time, opened offices in New York, Singapore and Romania, have grown to over 200 employees and recently announced our $50m Series C investment.  

and we're not stopping there!

 We are looking for people to join our team who are experts in their field, and share our core values...

 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

The role

You will join as a mid-level Machine Learning Engineer working alongside our 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 a 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 focus on 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 the quality of our code.  You will not only take part in this, but also 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 biggest 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 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 (we use Python and Java - either one of this languages will be helpful!)
    Experience with high throughput data streaming architectures and technologies - TensorFlow / Pytorch / Spark / Kafka
    Ownership of software from idea inception to production.
    Experience working with tooling for testing, build and deployment pipelines
    Working understanding of logging, monitoring and alerting tooling
    Good communication and written skills including experience producing technical documentation.


    Experience working in a multi-disciplinary team (ML Engineers, SREs, Product)
    Experience managing data models and versioning.
    Working with containerised infrastructure.
    An interest in machine learning
