Company background

Thunes mission is to enable businesses and their customers to participate in the global economy by providing them fast and affordable cross-border payments. Interconnecting mobile wallet operators, corporates, merchants, money transfer operators, payment service providers and banks to facilitate seamless payments, we unlock opportunities for millions of people and businesses in emerging and developed markets.

Our Mission

To enable a world where emerging and developed markets have seamlessly interconnected cross-border payments.

Our Solutions

We act as a trusted, neutral aggregator in a deeply fragmented industry. Without a trusted, neutral and interoperable aggregator, the partners of a payment transaction would waste time and costly resources developing their connections to multiple systems. Multiple connections would also mean that these actors have to charge higher prices, which could prohibit financial inclusion and the spread of financial services.

We offer key payment solutions to tackle the speed, cost-efficiency and accessibility challenges for emerging markets:


  • Remittance processing
  • Corporate mass payouts
  • Digital payments services
  • Business payments (International Trade Invoice Payments)

We are looking for a Senior Compliance Officer to join our team in Nairobi to lead the compliance function in East Africa. This role will partner with legal, sales and product teams in London, New York City, Singapore and the rest of the world.

This role provides an exciting opportunity to work on an international stage, alongside household names, and join a rapidly growing FinTech company making a real impact on the lives of people in developed and emerging markets alike.

The role will report to the Head of Legal & Compliance based in London. Some international travel required (20%).

  • Scrutinise and contribute to existing policies and test that they are robust, customer friendly and adequate under applicable regulations, by internal review and working with external reviewers and ensuring any audit findings are addressed
