Overview

Are you passionate about investigating financial crime? Are you excited about using data to identify suspicious patterns or trends? Then the Compliance Analyst position with WePay may be the right role for you.

Each one of our Analysts directly impacts our bottom line and our customers. Compliance Analysts are responsible for building a trusted environment for our customers by investigating suspicious payment activities that are identified by our proprietary risk technology.

About WePay

WePay’s mission is to make commerce seamless. Our products help software companies integrate payments into their applications – thereby empowering small businesses and individuals to get paid easily and quickly using their go-to apps and software. Our customers include BigCommerce, GoFundme, Meetup and Freshbooks, just to name a few. By joining forces with JPMorgan Chase, a global financial services firm with over $2.5 trillion in assets that serves millions of customers worldwide, WePay is now able to connect our customers seamlessly into a range of banking services beyond payments.

WePay is a unique place to work and offers the best of both worlds.

However, now combined with the power of JPMorgan Chase, employees are also able to create change at scale and have an opportunity to truly disrupt and shape FinTech.
