Position description

Sayari is a data intelligence platform that helps fight financial crime, increases corporate transparency in high-risk places, and supports critical national security mission sets.

We need your help to identify, interpret, and exploit hundreds of millions of Chinese and other global public records. You will use those records to conduct complex investigations of illicit networks in China and around the world, tackling everything from counterproliferation to supply chain integrity to sanctions enforcement.

This will include opportunities to publish your own investigative pieces and circulate them to journalists, clients, and other government and private stakeholders. You will lead the discovery of new public records resources for Sayari products, working closely with our engineering team to develop cutting-edge data and analytic solutions. We will expect you to maintain a high level of regional and country expertise in order to understand the potential financial and security risks relevant to our clients.

Sayari will consider both junior and mid-career applicants for this position. Salary will be commensurate with experience, and we offer full healthcare coverage, 401k matching, flexible work hours, and a variety of other benefits. The company will consider paid relocation on a case-by-case basis.
