Robinhood Crypto looking for a compliance lead as the company plans for regulated expansion of the platform.
The millennial trading application and asset exchange platform, Robinhood, released a job posting for a Compliance lead in its cryptocurrency department, Robinhood Crypto LLC. The job posting on its official careers page advertises the role of Crypto Compliance Lead in the Menlo Park, California based company with roles to run the day to day “crypto compliance operations.”
Furthermore, the employee will assume the role of Chief Compliance Officer and maintain the Anti Money Laundering (AML) audits as the compliance officer in the company.
Some of the tasks assigned to the CCL position includes,

The role requires a bachelor's’ degree in economics, computer science or any liberal arts degree with long term experience managing operational risk and managing large teams and projects.
