Junior Risk Analyst
Data & Analytics - Stockholm
Junior Risk Analyst | Risk Operations Team (ROPS) | Stockholm | Start Date: ASAP
We are a growing family searching for fresh minds to join us in Stockholm. Though predominantly based in Sweden's beautiful capital, Risk Operations and its various specialist and regional teams can be found in London, Mexico City and Sao Paulo. Our job is seemingly simple but far from it: We are tasked with ensuring that financial crime is prevented as well as mitigating adverse risk to the Company. We are often on the back foot as criminals including fraudsters, money launderers and would-be financiers of terrorism are not idle or uninventive. The risk landscape constantly evolves and we have to adapt to it, forcing us to set ourselves several steps ahead. Along with other teams comprising Engineers and Data S we ensure that iZettle remains a safe, stable and secure financial ecosystem.
This is no ordinary job posting as we are not looking for ordinary candidates. We are a motley crew of bright and inquisitive minds. In truth we are a diverse group of eclectics with no predominant or overarching shape or form. We use our differences constructively and employ our wide range of perspectives to great effect in the mitigating of risk to our merchants and our Company. We are a family, a group of friends more than colleagues - Why? This enables us to pull together during those tense moments as well as collectively enjoy our successes! We are there for one another and take pride in what we achieve. We demand high-standards, very high, but with that we offer the following:
A relaxed and humorous but efficient work environment. We try our best to provide the cure to the Monday Blues; a fun, engaging but effective professional setting where you are best-placed to fulfill your own objectives as well as ours. Humour is essential, with irony forming the key ingredient. We maintain a great multicultural and energetic atmosphere that we hope, as a successful candidate, you will be a part of!
Junior Risk Analyst (JRA)
In order to help small businesses succeed in a world of giants, we have to keep our financial environment safe from illegal activity, illicit behaviour and general malpractice.
iZettle strives to positively contribute to a better world economy fuelled by small business. We do this by addressing the multitude of needs and disadvantages that beset the largest component of our own economy - the small business. Each team or department strives to reach this overarching objective. In Risk Operations we work together in order to ensure that our merchants do not have to worry about being menaced by financial crime. We monitor, surveil, analyse and assess the financial flow in order to ensure that our Company is being used for the right and not the wrong reasons! As iZettle grows we too must ensure that new products and services are tested and hardened to the exhausting range of threats and risks posed by financial criminals.
We are looking for someone to join our Risk Operations Team (ROPS) as a Junior Risk Analyst (JRA). What does that mean?
Junior Risk Analysts (JRAs) are entry-level members of the ROPS team. JRAs are expected to quickly learn central operational tasks, become proficient at investigating cases of suspected financial criminal activity as well as provide new energy and vigour to our team. New candidates are recruited due to their character, temperament, intelligence and ability to bring a fresh perspective and focus to the existing organisation. Along with Senior Risk Analysts and Risk Analysts, JRAs are required to carry out core operational requirements that form the mainstay of ROPS. Once you have mastered the fundamentals it is up to you to make your mark!
You will be expected to think big and bold. We aim to innovate and always move forward, regression does not suit us! It is very important that we always improve upon our existing systems and procedures. Come to us with an open and problem-solving mindset. Be prepared for your ideas to be criticised, dissected, supported and then developed into a system or product. We throw our JRAs into the deep end but don't worry we have plenty of lifejackets to spare!
At the end of the day you will be joining a group of accomplished, driven and fun individuals who come to work each day because they enjoy it!
