Your opportunity

Mollie is a pioneer in online payments and is one of the fastest-growing payment service providers in Europe. We help businesses of all sizes sell and scale more efficiently with a solid and easy-to-use payment solution. 

Mollie continuously looks for ways to innovate while remaining in control. It’s important that we comply with licensing requirements, internal policies, and other prevailing laws while also balancing Mollie’s growth plans with the ever-changing requirements and expectations of Mollie’s customers and regulators. And that's where you come into play. 

As a Compliance Officer in our established Compliance Team, you will help in the continued growth of Mollie by ensuring that Mollie complies with applicable laws, regulations, supervisory requirements and internal policies and procedures. You will be responsible for identifying and assessing the compliance risks faced by Mollie as well as assisting in the management and monitoring of these risks.


What you'll be doing
  • Oversee regulatory compliance obligations across multiple European jurisdictions and identify potential gaps in policies and procedures;
  • Act as a trusted advisor for the Mollie front-line business in relation to the development of new products and services across different jurisdictions; 
  • Manage and periodically update the control framework to ensure compliance with identified integrity risks, including money-laundering, terrorism financing, sanctions, bribery & corruption, conflicts of interest, improper conduct and fraud;
  • Formulate professional opinions and draft policies, frameworks and procedures and thereafter ensure an effective implementation strategy;
  • Inform and advise the operational departments and (senior) management about the impact of and changes in laws and regulations, best practices or compliance themes in general;
  • Conduct periodic compliance monitoring activities and risk assessments and compile reports for (senior) management and relevant committees across Mollie; 
  • Actively support and guide the operational departments with practical implications of changes in legislation or policies and assist in translating applicable legislation into properly functioning business processes;
  • Coordinate and monitor regulatory inspections, investigations, thematic reviews, inquiries, self-assessments, surveys, questionnaires, and consultations to ensure timely and quality submissions;
  • Anchor compliance in business operations, actively contributing to the development and organisation of training and awareness programs.


What you'll need
  • At least 4 years of compliance or control function experience within a financial services environment (experience within the Compliance Team of a regulated financial institution or payment services provider based in Europe is a significant advantage); 
  • A proactive, analytical approach with a strong sense of structure and organisational skills;
  • Experience in supervising compliance with laws, regulations and policies/procedures;
  • Experience analysing complex data sets to identify key issues and drive resolution of identified issues;
  • Ability to weigh various stakeholder interests and stimulate a balanced weighing of interests, while maintaining a commitment to complying with the letter and spirit of laws and regulations;
  • A positive and independent personality, with an eagerness to learn and to pick up new things;
  • Advanced degree in (preferably) law, comparable study or demonstrably a comparable level of knowledge and thinking. Certified compliance education is a strong plus;
  • Excellent English oral and written communication skills (fluency in German or French is a plus);
  • Experience engaging with European Regulators is a strong plus;
  • Experience in the development of financial products/services and license applications is a strong plus.
