Banks are fined $35B annually for failing to detect dangerous financial crimes behind financing election manipulation, wars, and dirty business, yet they spend over $100B annually on tech and ops on screening for financial crime risk. The financial crime regulatory ecosystem is completely rules-based and it spams multiple layers of analysis within banks and government agencies with false positive risk alerts.

Merlon Intelligence solves a number of different identity and behavior risk screening problems leveraging NLP and ML. We have especially cool state of the art multi-language knowledge extraction models. All our risk models are built on various systems components running on google cloud, including our multi TB media index. Over time, state of the art models trained on unique domain-specific annotations from our banking clients and accumulated expert-curated golden set provide a ‘data flywheel effect’ generating a competitive moat over time. Additional defensibility comes from the painful and time consuming go to market and global deployment process with big banks.

While it’s fun to use state of the art machine learning methods to find more risky people more efficiently, the setting is intense, mission critical, complex, and very sensitive. We need an experienced Infrastructure Engineer to own and evangelise the best infrastructure practices across the team and help us with our mission - stopping the bad guys.

You will evangelise best infrastructure practices across the team, which includes:

  • internal automation (CI/CD)
  • configuration management

Technologies we use:

  • Python, Bash (scripting and automation)
  • Bazel (dependency management in our monorepo)
  • JVM (our backend is written in Scala)
  • Nginx
  • Prometheus, Grafana, PagerDuty (waking you up in the middle of the night)
  • PostgreSQL, ElasticSearch, BigTable (for storing backend data)
  • Concourse CI


  • Experience with production Kubernetes
  • Experience with at least one CI/CD tool
  • Proficiency in Python and Bash
