Junior Compliance Officer

Mollie is one of Europe's fastest growing Fin-Tech companies. We're looking for an enthusiastic ambitious Junior Compliance Officer to be part of our Amsterdam Legal & Compliance team. 

This department is responsible for ensuring Mollie acts in compliance with all prevailing laws, regulations, internal policies, procedures and codes of conduct.


Mollie briefly explained

Mollie is one of Europe’s fastest growing fintech companies. We provide a simple and clear payment API, that enables webshops, platforms and app builders to implement various payment methods in one go.

Tinkering, disruption, and inclusivity are Mollie core values. In the first few years of existence, Mollie was a developer-only endeavour, and 14 years later devs and techs still comprise roughly 35% of all staff. As a natural consequence, a lot of things that enterprise businesses or pretend-to-be-start-ups are trying too hard to mimic, come quite natural to Mollie.
