Pre-Series A

Our mission is to stop money laundering. By law, financial institutions must monitor transactions for illicit activity. Unfortunately, it takes a lot of time and resources to do this correctly. Roughly $6T is laundered every year and $180B is spent on anti-money-laundering efforts. Only 2-3% of these funds are correctly identified, and existing solutions have a false positive rate of over 95%. Consequently, banks and the government must spend extra time and resources on extraneous alerts, taking away resources from investigating wrongdoing.

  • Be an early engineer with a lot of influence over the technical and product direction of the company.
