About Cleo

Most people come to Cleo to do work that matters. Every day, we fight for the world’s financial health, building a beloved AI that empowers people to make better financial decisions.

Backed by some of the most well-known investors in tech, we’ve reached over 4 million users and plan to double that number each year…which is where you come in.

We’re looking for a Compliance Manager to work closely with our Head of Legal and Compliance in the U.S. This is a brand new role reporting to our Head of Legal and Compliance and will be the second person to join our small but mighty Compliance team.

We’re building a world-class, data-driven and tech-focused Compliance team as we grow, driving us toward our next fundraise and beyond. You’ll take the lead in managing the day to day operations of our Compliance program as we scale rapidly over the next 3-5 years.

Some of the things you'll get involved with:

  • Serving as the primary compliance point of contact for our bank partners by attending weekly meetings, supporting bank testing, audit and monitoring, and partnering with internal teams to submit monthly compliance reporting
  • Performing basic reviews of marketing assets for UDAAP and other advertising risk
  • Building out existing internal compliance testing framework and conducting routine testing/monitoring
  • Oversee completion of vendor risk assessments, complaint management and training 
  • Performing and reviewing risk assessments to help us understand and mitigate compliance risk in all areas of the business
  • As we scale, identifying new opportunities to enhance compliance and protect the businesses from unreasonable risk

What are we looking for?

  • You have at least five years work experience in bank or fintech compliance 
  • You’re comfortable carving your path in a fast-paced environment 
  • You’re able and excited to conceive of and execute projects independently 
  • You have the ability to quickly pick up new concepts, and dive into a problem with a solutions-oriented, outcome-focused mindset – even with no prior background in the subject matter
  • You’re able to jump in and advise product, marketing and other key stakeholders in the business 
  • Demonstrated problem-solving and analytical capabilities, and the ability to develop creative solutions for challenging, open-ended problems

Nice to have:

  • A passion or previous experience in the Fintech sector
  • Experience working for a Global company across different time-zones

What do you get for all your hard work?

  • A competitive compensation package (base + equity) with bi-annual reviews. 
  • Work at one of the fastest-growing tech startups, backed by top VC firms, Balderton & EQT Ventures
  • A clear progression plan. We want you to keep growing. That means trying new things, leading others, challenging the status quo and owning your impact. Always with our complete support.
  • Flexibility: We can’t fight for the world’s financial health if we’re not healthy ourselves. We work with everyone to make sure they have the balance they need to do their best work
  • Work where you work best. We’re a globally distributed team. If you live in London we have a hybrid approach, we’d love you to spend one day a week or more in our beautiful office. If you’re outside of London, we’ll encourage you to spend a couple of days with us a few times per year. And we’ll cover your travel costs, naturally.
  • Other benefits;
    • 25 days annual leave a year + public holidays (+ an additional day for every year you spend at Cleo)
    • 401k matching in the US and 6% employer-matched pension in the UK
    • 2 months paid sabbatical after 4 years at Cleo!
    • Early finish every Friday
    • Online courses & internal training to level up your skills
    • Regular socials and activities, online and in-person
    • Online mental health support via Spill
    • Access to Pushfar – online platform for external mentorship
    • And many more!
