TRM Labs

TRM Labs

Washington, DC, USA
Posted on Thursday, May 30, 2024

TRM is on a mission to build a safer financial system for billions of people. We deliver a blockchain intelligence data platform to financial institutions, crypto companies, and governments to fight cryptocurrency fraud and financial crime. We consider our business — and our profit — as a way to move towards our mission sustainably and at scale.

As a member of the Global Investigations Team, you will conduct ad hoc investigations, time sensitive blockchain analysis for our partners and develop solutions that allow TRM to scale rapidly and effectively. You will collaborate with an experienced team of blockchain intelligence experts, engineers, and data scientists to deliver cutting-edge support to TRM's clients.

The impact you’ll have here:

  • Investigate complex cases involving phishing, blockchain exploits, hacks, terrorism finance, account take overs (ATOs), money laundering, sim swaps, ransomware and other activity associated with illicit use of blockchain technology.
  • Produce insightful reports and deliver them both in writing and in briefings to TRM's customers.
  • Conduct long-term research on key categories of crime on the blockchain, and turn this research into valuable intelligence.
  • Conduct sensitive and complex investigations for TRM partners.
  • Proactively identify, build and manage relationships with industry partners to add new sources of attribution to TRMs pipeline at scale.

What we’re looking for:

  • Practical experience with virtual currencies and blockchain analysis is a plus; excitement to learn about these topics is essential.
  • Experience as an investigator or analyst in the public sector and ideally with Federal Law Enforcement; preferably at least 3-5 years combined experience
  • Experience briefing senior leaders within your organization.
  • Experience structuring problems and identifying the most critical issues to prioritize.
  • Exceptional and consistent attention to detail.
  • Ability to communicate complex ideas effectively for technical and non-technical audiences, both verbally and in writing.
  • Comfort operating in a fast-paced environment where priorities can change quickly.
  • Ability to work collaboratively in a cross-functional team and with people at all levels in an organization.
  • Commitment to supporting teammates and helping them accomplish their missions.

Please note; this role is NOT remote (at least 50% onsite requirement)
