Strise is a fast-expanding technology company operating out of Oslo. We have built a revolutionary AML (anti money laundering) Intelligence System to help top-tier banks, fintechs, and other financial institutions fight financial crime.

Strise’s graph and AI technology centers around connecting insights about B2B customers, providing intelligent information to our customers. Vipps, SpareBank 1, and Nordea, are just a few that have had tremendous success using Strise.

Strise makes an impact by making it easier and faster for banks to fulfill their social mission of uncovering financial violations, like money laundering. After successfully becoming trusted by many of the biggest financial institutions in Scandinavia, we are now venturing into the UK, followed by the rest of Europe. We’re well on our way to becoming the global standard in anti-money laundering technology.

We are looking for a visionary Principal Software Engineer to guide our team of highly skilled and motivated software engineers. You will be entrusted with business-critical projects and guide the technical vision of the organization making sure your team achieves lofty goals. You'll also make an impact in the broader tech community, sharing your knowledge externally and contributing to ongoing dialogues and developments. As our technical torch-bearer, you'll be overseeing and shaping the direction of our backend solutions – all while nurturing our innovative KYC platform set to reshape the international market.

At Strise, we strive to lead by focusing heavily on knowledge development, and we are convinced that AI will change how we work. Among other things, we've recently established Norway's first LLM community in collaboration with Google: https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:7077929689612247040/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=member_desktop.
