Wallet in Telegram is your gateway to the world of digital currencies, specially tailored for individuals in emerging markets. We understand the complexities and intimidation often associated with existing crypto solutions, which is why we've designed the Wallet to be the ultimate user-friendly platform for managing finances. No need to open a traditional bank account or wrestle with convoluted crypto exchanges and wallets.

It is already actively used by millions of users worldwide, but we are not going to stop: we are scaling to new regions and adding new features. The product has found its product/market fit, is rapidly growing its audience and revenue.

Rapid growth inevitably leads to inefficiencies in the work of the analytics team. We don't always answer well questions about what is happening with the product, because when all metrics are growing from all sides, the team doesn't understand what to grasp or may miss something small that negatively affects the product in the long run. If you've had experience working in a fast-growing product, you're well aware of this phenomenon.

Now we are seeking a Risk manager to join our team.

Responsibilities:

  • Build a risk management function and establish a risk committee for regular monitoring of the project's regulatory, financial, and operational status: coordination and preparation of reports for management and regulators on the current state of risks and the effectiveness of measures taken, developing a culture where all project team members are aware of potential risks and participate in their management.
  • Risk assessment and modeling: identification and analysis of risks that may affect the project, including financial, operational, and legal risks; development and application of alerts and mathematical models for quantitative risk assessment, including risk capital calculation (e.g., VaR, stress testing, scenario analysis, etc.).
  • Policy creation and implementation: minimising risks, including liquidity and operational controls.
  • Crisis and incident action plans: development and implementation of action plans for financial, operational, and other crises.
  • Develop risk management strategy and risk appetite, monitor and develop the risk registers, ensure risk controls are set up by risk owners.
  • Risk systems delivery and maintenance (in-house, 3rd party tools), and support new product development.
  • Analyze crypto assets and investment strategies for potential risks and vulnerabilities.
  • Monitor KRIs against prescribed limits together with the senior stakeholders.
  • Establish strong working relationships with regulators and auditors on risk-related issues.

Requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Finance, Economics, Business Administration, Risk Management, or a related field.
  • A Master’s degree or relevant certifications (e.g., FRM, PRM, CFA) is a plus.
  • Minimum 5 years of experience in risk management, compliance, or a related field within the crypto or financial services industry, experience in the cryptocurrency is highly desirable.
  • Strong understanding of cryptocurrency exchanges, and blockchain technology, proficiency in risk assessment tools and techniques.
  • Familiarity with regulatory frameworks and compliance requirements relevant to VASPs, including AML/CFT regulations, proficiency in data analysis and statistical software (e.g., Excel, R, Python, SQL).
  • Ability to analyze complex data sets and identify potential risks, experience in conducting risk assessments and developing risk management plans.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, strong interpersonal skills and the ability to work collaboratively with cross-functional teams.
  • Proficiency in English (at least level B2) is required. Knowledge of Russian is preferred.

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.
  • Be based remotely.
  • Participation in the performance review and bonus programme.
