About the function

In the AML team, you will be working on one of the most challenging issues for the FinTech sector, namely compliance related to money laundering (AML). It is up to you to identify potential money laundering, terrorist financing or other fraud risks within Adyen's portfolio. With your analytical skills, you investigate whether the transactions pose a risk to the merchant and/or Adyen and intervene immediately to prevent possible risks in the future. These are your tasks within the team:

  • You monitor high risk transactions within the Adyen platform;
  • You identify merchants through customer analytics to decide if the merchant is actually a risk;
  • You liaise with the account manager and the merchant to mitigate risk.

Furthermore, you are expected to actively look for ways to improve processes and find better insights into the portfolio.
