Director of Engineering, Compliance & Risk Products
Company: Chainalysis Inc.
Posted on: May 16, 2022
The engineering team at Chainalysis is inspired by solving the
hardest technical challenges and creating products that build trust
in cryptocurrencies. We're a global organization with teams in
Denmark, the USA and the UK who thrive on the challenging work we
do and doing it with other exceptionally talented teammates. Our
industry changes every day and our job is to build a flexible
platform that will allow us to adapt to those rapid changes.
The Director of Engineering, Compliance & Risk Products will lead
and grow multiple teams who work on the products that build trust
in blockchain for fintechs, dApp developers and Fortune 500
enterprises. They're a trusted mentor to managers and engineers
across the organization and vital partners for the Director of
Product, working with them to develop the strategy for the team and
the product. They are as comfortable in front of a whiteboard
discussing architecture as they are building and measuring OKRs.
They would rather make sure the experts in their teams can make
decisions effectively, but they're comfortable with making the big
decisions where necessary.
We measure success by the retention and engagement of our
engineering team, and ultimately delivery against our product
