Hello, we’re Tide.

We believe SMEs have been vastly underserviced and overlooked by traditional banks. Something as simple as opening an account can take weeks, mountains of paperwork and too much time. Through a mobile-first platform, we provide modern business banking services to small-business owners, saving them time so they can get back to doing what they love.

Based in central London, Tide is backed by some of Europe’s most notable founders and investors, including Robin and Saul Klein (LocalGlobe) and Alex Chesterman (Zoopla Property Group), as well as top VCs in London and Stockholm (Anthemis, Creandum and Passion Capital).

We’re offering the right person, the opportunity to join our dynamic team to help unlock the next stage of our growth. We’re a rocket ship that’s going places – this looks a little like world domination!

Your day will look a little like this…

As a Financial Crime QA Analyst at Tide (fondly referred to as a Tidean, a god-like challenger of the banking world), you will report directly to the MLRO. In this position, you will perform quality assurance across both the Financial Crime and KYC teams, maintaining regulatory compliance.

You will sit independently from the KYC and Financial Crime functions, identifying any emerging trends from investigations and SARs and ensuring policies are strictly adhered to.

Comfortability with data is key, as is the ability to present key metrics to the MLRO outlining the quality across the business.

You will also review Tide’s quality against policies and Tide’s policies in comparison to JMLSG guidance, assisting in identifying problem areas and risks associated with current processes, in addition to making recommendations for improvement where required.

Who are we looking for?

  • Educated to degree level
  • 2+ years of experience in a Compliance-related role at a leading FinTech or bank
  • Ability to work well as part of a team; decisive; goal-oriented; proactive
  • Previous QA experience is essential
  • Comfortable with JMLSG
  • We’re not corporate, we’re a start-up. You will have an unparalleled exposure to many areas of the business – improve and impact how we work
  • We will give you the freedom to be inquisitive and proactive – pursue your interests and develop career with us as we scale
  • We’re open and progressive – input is encouraged at all levels
  • We’re a social bunch. We celebrate the milestones, big and small and genuinely enjoy each other’s company!
