Head of Compliance/MLRO



Legal · Full-time
Dubai - United Arab Emirates
Posted on Wednesday, March 6, 2024

Join the Wallet team, where we're committed to innovating the future of finance with our custodial wallet built on the TON Blockchain and seamlessly integrated into Telegram. With a mission to make crypto accessible and secure for Telegram's vast user base, we're seeking a highly skilled Head of Compliance/MLRO to play a pivotal role in driving the adoption of crypto and Web3.

As the Head of Compliance/MLRO, you'll be at the forefront of our operations, ensuring Wallet works smoothly within regulatory frameworks while championing innovation in the Web3 ecosystem.

Collaborating closely with diverse teams, you'll assess compliance-related risks, develop regulatory strategies, and fortify AML/CTF frameworks for our platform.

This role includes:

  • Managing an existing team of 40+ compliance team members (including onboarding & monitoring specialists); by the end of 2024, we estimate the compliance team to grow to 100+ members. We do have a dedicated team for compliance operations to support this.
  • Facing our supervisory authority as the main point of contact.
  • Being technology-savvy and offering smart ways to scale and streamline the work of our compliance department. Have a great understanding of how leading vendors in the KYC/KYT and custody area work.
  • Being data-driven and offering ways to monitor and control our exposures, with a focus on our AML/CTF. Compliance is allocated a separate business analyst to support this.
  • Having a stellar understanding of risks inherent in the Web3 space and how to mitigate them, including AML/CTF risks. Have a great command of the risk-based approach.
  • Managing outsourcing arrangements and closely collaborating with external consultants and partners.
  • Playing an active role in shaping our product features while keeping our compliance commitments intact.
  • Being up-to-date with the state of the industry and the best practices in it.


  • 5+ years of experience in prudential compliance and AML/CTF. ACAMS certification preferred but not a prerequisite.
  • Experience in Web3 is an advantage, though experience in innovative TradFi products is also acceptable.
  • Eligible to work in the UAE or readiness to relocate there.
  • Meet the skills and experience requirements for a Compliance Officer/MLRO of a VARA authorized VASP.

Why it is a fantastic opportunity:

  • Our business is growing at an exponential scale.
  • Work in a well-funded startup environment with unique growth opportunities and a chance to join a rapidly growing company with a unique product.
Wallet is an equal opportunity employer.
