Job Description

Do you want to work in an international, flexible work environment with the opportunity to work in a revolutionary business. We are looking for a Chief Compliance Officer to lead our Compliance Team in our company in Ruoholahti, right in the heart of Helsinki! We offer remote work possibilities, a competitive salary and additional benefits that are described more in detail at the bottom.

LocalBitcoins is a globally leading P2P trading platform for bitcoin and one of the founding pillars of the Bitcoin economy. LocalBitcoins was founded in 2012 and has since grown to over 8 000 000 registered users from all over the world. Although we are already an established, financially profitable company, we are not a corporation. We treasure agile ways of working and a growth hacking kind of mindset. We have over 60 international employees.

LocalBitcoins is registered with and operates under the supervision of the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority and is one of the first companies who received the registration of a virtual currency provider in Finland in November 2019. This means that the company is compliant with the Finnish Act on Virtual Currency Providers e.g. makes sure that the relevant anti-money laundering and counter terrorism financing related regulation is applied in the Company. In addition to the registration, LocalBitcoins has had a lot of cooperation with the authorities in Finland already for several years and values the cooperation and generally considers that the cooperation develops the whole industry for a safe market to everybody involved. In the future, LocalBitcoins will become an even more regulated entity as the current development regarding the common framework, Markets in Cryptoassets Regulation (MiCA), is coming to the industry.

The Chief Compliance Officer together with Compliance team has two levels of responsibilities; guaranteeing that the company is conducting its business in adherence to national and international laws/regulations that pertain to its industry and also ensuring that professional standards, accepted business practices, and internal systems of control necessary to achieve compliance with the external rules are followed.

  • Effective communication skills
  • Planning and organisational skills
  • Flexible, reliable and committed team player
  • At least 5 years of experience in a compliance function of a company in a regulated or supervised environment


  • An understanding of bitcoin / desire to work in the cryptocurrency industry is considered favourable


  • Working with revolutionary technology in a revolutionary company. Cryptocurrencies is a whole new industry. Our aim is to provide bitcoin access everywhere and professional, knowledgeable and caring customer support is one of the key elements in the process.
  • We want our employees to eat healthy every workday and therefore we provide all our employees lunch benefits on top of their monthly salary to cover expenses of workday lunches. We haven’t forgotten healthy snacks either that are provided in our office space.
  • We believe that happy and well-being employees are an asset to the company as well and we encourage employees to healthy lifestyle with our Sport and Cultural Benefit which is a tax-free benefit paid to all our employees on top of their monthly salary
  • We have flexible possibilities for separating or combining work and personal time whatever suits you the best. If you want to have a phone benefit, we will provide it for you but if you rather keep some distance between work and free time no worries this is fine!
  • Working remotely is also part of flexibility we want to provide to you when suitable to work arrangements. If you prefer to work everyday in our comfortable, hyggeish office space located conveniently in Ruoholahti this is more than acceptable because we will arrange your own office space for you.
  • We are a group of people from different nationalities and backgrounds. Do you want to work in an international environment with motivated, easy-going colleagues? We want you to get to become part of our work family. We hope to get to know you personally, you are not just part of the crowd. you are one of us.
