  • Full time
  • Email

Are you passionate about developing mission-critical, high quality software solutions, using cutting-edge technology, in a dynamic environment?


We are Compliance Engineering, a team of more than 300 engineers and scientists who work on the most complex, mission-critical problems.


  • build and operate a suite of platforms and applications that prevent, detect, and mitigate regulatory and reputational risk across the firm.
  • have access to the latest technology and to massive amounts of structured and unstructured data.
  • leverage modern frameworks to build responsive and intuitive UX/UI and Big Data applications.
  • incorporate cutting-edge AI for automation and efficiency.

Compliance Engineering is looking to fill a full-stack software engineer role at the Analyst or Associate level.

Your first deliverable and success criteria will be the pilot release, in 2020, of an immersive web-based application to protect the firm's most sensitive information around investment banking deals and securities restrictions.


As a member of our team, you will:

  • partner globally across multiple divisions and engineering teams to create end-to-end solutions,
  • be able to innovate and incubate new ideas,
  • learn from experts,
  • have an opportunity to work on a broad range of problems, from monitoring suspicious transactions with AI, to scaling out graph and search platforms, to visualizing patterns or behavior in investigative and workflow UIs,
  • be responsible for designing, implementing, testing, deploying, and maintaining software systems across the full stack of our products.

A successful candidate will possess 5 attributes:

  • A Bachelor's or Master's degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or a similar field of study.
  • Expertise in any programming language, as well as proficiency in SQL and data manipulation.
  • Experience in end-to-end solutions.
  • The ability (and tenacity) to clearly express ideas and arguments in meetings and on paper.
  • Experience in several, but not all of the following:
  • distributed systems,
  • message buses or real time processing,
  • platform engineering,
  • large-scale system design, such as on Hadoop/Hbase,
  • data mining or search,
  • information retrieval,
  • natural language processing,
  • NoSQL databases, such as MongoDB,
  • workflow design, such as with JBPM,
  • UI development with Angular or React.

Knowledge of the financial industry and compliance or risk functions in particular would be welcome, but are not expectations. Furthermore, being able to demonstrate how you were able to influence senior stakeholders - while not a mandatory requirement for this role - can set you apart from other candidates.
