We believe that a blockchain-based global economy can improve the lives of billions of people. But the same properties that make cryptocurrencies a force for good — permissionless, programmable, and instantaneous — can also make them susceptible to criminal and fraudulent activity, which causes harm to our financial system at unprecedented speed and scale.

At TRM, we're on a mission to build trust in digital assets, because the promise of crypto is too valuable to be impeded by bad actors. We provide a blockchain intelligence platform to law enforcement, financial institutions, and crypto firms to assist in the detection and prevention of cryptocurrency fraud and financial crime. Our vision is to build a company that can sustainably deliver on our mission for decades to come, enabling consumers to transact safely and securely on the blockchain

As a Blockchain Intelligence Analyst focused on Hacks and Exploited Funds, you will drive TRM’s collection, analysis, and reporting on hacking events and exploits (ex. Ronin hack, Poly Network, Nomad Bridge etc.). You will also contribute to basic smart contracts risk assessment and vulnerabilities categorization, as well as helping to drive attribution efforts for DeFi.
You will ensure that TRM has best-in-class intelligence through your subject matter expertise, first-principles problem solving, and ability to turn data into insights. You will collaborate with an experienced team of engineers, data scientists, and product managers to build scalable systems to detect, prevent, and mitigate cryptocurrency fraud and financial crime.

The impact you’ll have here:

  • Owning TRM’s intelligence cycle for key areas of the crypto economy and hack events, to include collection, analysis, and reporting.
  • Producing insightful reports and delivering them both in writing and in briefings.
  • Managing attribution data and collaborating with product managers, data scientists, software engineers, and blockchain intelligence experts.
  • Collaborating with data and engineering teams to enhance the TRM product.
  • Building and refining processes to enable scaling.

What we’re looking for:

  • You have previous experiences in tracing and attributing hacks.
  • You are able to provide basic analysis of smart contracts for vulnerabilities and risks.
  • Experience with attributing state actors would be a plus.
  • You are excited about the crypto space and have practical experience with virtual currencies, applications, and their use in financial networks.
  • You enjoy turning unique data into high quality insights, including tactical and strategic intelligence reports.
  • You demonstrate full ownership of your work, taking an 80/20 approach to accomplish objectives.

Our Culture

Culture at TRM isn't a buzzword; it's our daily ethos. Our culture is defined by how we make decisions, how we execute, and how we treat each other. We've distilled our culture into 18 leadership principles, grouped into three categories:

  • Impact-Oriented Trailblazer: When making decisions, we put customers first, use 80/20 to drive speed & focus, and adapt quickly to new information.
  • Master Craftsperson: In execution, we prioritize speed, high standards, and distributed ownership.
  • Inspiring Colleague: As teammates, we value humility, candor, and a one-team mindset.

Building a Career

Joining TRM means being part of a mission-driven team. Our diverse team comprises industry leaders, from crypto experts to machine learning pioneers. At TRM, you'll experience:

  • Personal Growth: We're not just using technology; we're inventing it and taking category-defining products to market.

Work Environment

Being part of TRM means embracing:

  • High Ownership: Small teams drive big goals at TRM. Every team member has significant ownership and responsibility, fostering an environment of initiative and direct impact. While there's no strict clocking in or out, we expect team members to be available for meetings during standard working hours in their country, balancing personal schedules and team needs.

  • TRM Speed: Our customers rely on TRM in active investigations — from cyberattacks to terrorist financing. We move “surprisingly fast” while maintaining a high bar in service of our customers and mission. This can feel both intense and rewarding. Our unique approach to projects emphasizes quick wins, rapid iterations, and constant feedback, ensuring we're always moving forward and adapting to changes.

  • Diversity and Inclusion: Diversity at TRM encompasses backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. Every day is an opportunity to learn from a colleague, whether they're a law enforcement expert or a tech pioneer.
