The Senior Manager of Financial Crimes assumes a 2nd-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.
Eventually, you will become the owner and leader of a team that drives change, procedural efficiencies, and has a direct impact on the overall success of Oxygen’s BSA program. This role will involve some project-based work, requiring collaboration with stakeholders across Risk, Operations, Compliance, Product, Fraud, and Engineering teams. You will be responsible for recommending enhancements, efficiency improvements, and process refinements to ensure that risks are appropriately mitigated.
If you are not deterred by new challenges, possess a balanced approach to investigations, are passionate about safeguarding the financial sector, and are dedicated to protecting Oxygen and its customers, then we want to hear from you!
