PayPal is hiring the director of blockchain strategy, a position that will focus on anti-money laundering and compliance

PayPal’s latest job advertisement shows that PayPal is hiring the director of blockchain strategy, which will be part of its global financial crime team. The job advertisement showed that “successful candidates will be responsible for evaluating blockchain use cases and focusing on financial crime risk management, monitoring anti-money laundering investigations and emerging trends in this field.” In addition, the blockchain strategy director is also responsible for Blockchain opportunities to conduct “external partner due diligence.” Past job postings indicate that PayPal is establishing a blockchain research team, and then there is no relevant content for this recruitment, and the recruited strategic director will become a member of the PayPal global financial crime organization. The Strategic Director will focus on anti-money laundering (AML) compliance, responsible for mitigating AML risks in PayPal products and features, reviewing AML reports to identify trends, viewing AML documents, and more. This means that this anti-money laundering responsibility may extend to most business areas outside the blockchain.
