Oxygen's FIU supports various AML processes, including transaction monitoring alert/case investigations, Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD) reviews of high-risk customers, information sharing, law enforcement requests, Fintech peer networking, and Unusual Activity Reporting (UAR) filings with our banking partner, The Bancorp Bank.
The Financial Crimes Associate is a first line role. This individual will conduct targeted investigations for both business and consumer accounts to identify patterns and trends indicative of money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud, cyber (dark web) crime, foreign transactions, ACH fraud, unemployment / SBA fraud, and other potential violations of laws and regulations.
This role has the potential to lead Oxygen’s internal and outsourced Fraud Operations Team. It will involve some project-based work, collaborating with stakeholders across Risk, Operations, Compliance, Product, Fraud, and Engineering teams. Your responsibilities will include uncovering trends or patterns of fraud abuse to ensure risks are appropriately mitigated.
If you're not afraid of new challenges, possess a balanced approach to investigations, are passionate about safeguarding the financial sector, and are dedicated to protecting Oxygen and its customers, we want to hear from you!
