Quality Control Analyst (mKYC)

Location: Sofia
Department: Risk & Compliance
Employment Type: Full-time

Tide is the leading provider of UK SME business accounts and one of the fastest growing FinTechs in the UK. That’s not an unfounded boast – we’re used by over 120,000 businesses, have over two percent market share, and have raised over £120m in funding.

We’re also one of LinkedIn’s top 10 hottest UK companies to work for, winner of Best Use of Technology (Growth Finance Awards); Best Banking Provider (Contracting Awards); Innovative Product of the Year (Growth Finance Awards) and we’re listed in the Top 100 FinTech Disruptors and The Startups 100. And that’s just for 2019.

Your Team

As a QC in KYC at Tide (fondly referred to as a Tidean, a mighty challenger of the banking world) you’ll join an ambitious team of highly motivated, talented Tideans who love to collaborate, and are driven by helping people achieve their business ambitions. We live and breathe our values, which are to put our members first, work as one team and be data driven, as part of our team, they’ll matter to you too.

As part of the QC team, you will be a crucial part of our second line of defense. You’ll be setting up the procedures and then conducting QC checks on KYC processes, including re-KYC and triggers, to ensure we maintain compliance with regulation, policy and procedure. You’ll have great attention to detail and ensure any and all errors in process are identified and rectified. You’ll continually work to reduce regulatory and reputation risk, and improve quality, by exercising sound judgement.

You will be independent to the KYC team, conducting quality checks on the analyst’s work, and providing qualitative and quantitative reporting regularly to the MLRO and Head of KYC. You will assist in identifying problem areas and risks associated with current processes, and make recommendations for improvement where necessary.

Based in Sofia, this role will initially report to the VP Risk and Compliance (MLRO) until a QC Team Leader joins later in 2020.

About Tide

With over 140,000 members, we’re the leading provider of SME business accounts in the UK. Why? Because we’re solving a real world problem by being passionate about helping our members.

SME’s have been underserved and overlooked by traditional banks for years. In an entrepreneurial age where everyone is expected to take a shot, traditional banks have not evolved with the needs of the market. That’s where Tide comes in.

With quick on-boarding, low fees and innovative features, we thrive on making data driven decisions to help SMEs save both time and money.

About the Perks

Here at Tide, not only do we love what we do, but we love the people who do it. That’s why we look after our Tideans with:

  • 25 days paid leave
  • 5 days per month home office
  • Sponsored training, seminars and team events
  • Food vouchers
  • Additional health insurance
  • Multisport card
  • Snacks, light food, drinks in the office

Here’s what we think about diversity and inclusion…

Diversity is what makes our world interesting. Fact. We don’t build our product for one type of person, Tide is here for everyone. And that’s how we build our teams. We’re a melting pot of different cultures, races, religions, girls who like girls, boys who like boys and those who like both. We’re proud of the fact that we represent society and it will always be our mission to do so. Everyone here is given a voice, and if you like the sound of that, we’d encourage you to come and find your voice here, too.
