As part of its expansion plan, Zolve, a neobank start-up providing cross-border financial services, is on a hiring spree, seeking talent for multiple positions across teams in India and the US. 

The start-up has recently appointed Douglas T Hamilton as its Chief Compliance Officer. He was previously employed with Gemini Constellation as Director, Consumer Lending Compliance, and has also worked and led teams at BlockRize, Petal Card, and American Express.  

“Compliance is an integral part of the financial ecosystem, and I look forward to applying my expertise and learning in this area to contribute to the company’s vision of providing hassle-free financial services to global citizens,” said Hamilton, commenting on his appointment. 

Last month, Zolve onboarded Anandapadmanabhan Ramabhadran from the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) to drive its business and growth. It is currently looking for professionals to fill the roles of customer support head, customer support agents, senior product analyst, product manager, fraud and risk head, credit and risk, and collections lead. Zolve is also seeking candidates for marketing and credit risk data science roles.

Throwing light on the company’s hiring plans and recent appointments, Raghunandan G, founder and CEO of Zolve, said, “We are currently looking for candidates to join our teams in the US and India. Hamilton’s recent appointment as Chief Compliance Officer has further strengthened our core team.”  

Founded to help immigrants build their financial futures globally, Zolve offers a financial services app, an FDIC-insured US bank account, and a co-branded credit card to immigrants. In February 2021, the fintech raised $15 million seed funding, led by Accel and Lightspeed. In October 2021, it raised another $40 million in a Series A funding round.
