What we're up to

Kalshi has launched the first regulated financial exchange that allows people to trade on the anticipated outcome of events. We’re now looking for the right people to help us continue to grow and scale.

Our vision is to allow people to capitalize on their opinions and hedge risks that relate to their everyday lives, from "Will CPI rise more than 0.5% this month?” to "Will 2023 be the hottest year on record?"

We're on a long journey in uncharted territories and are looking for passionate and outlier members excited to embark on this voyage towards building the future of the financial system.

Role Roadmap

In the Financial Operations role, you will be an early member of Kalshi's Finance team. We cater to retail customers, market makers and hedge funds, and institutional traders. The Financial Operations team is responsible for ensuring the money flowing in and out of the Exchange and its connected systems is all accounted for.

We're scaling, which means your role will evolve and grow with the company; your initial responsibilities will include:

Responsibilities:

You will play a pivotal role in managing the flow of funds within our organization. Your primary responsibilities will include:

  • Transaction Monitoring: Oversee a high volume of financial transactions, tracking money inflows and outflows from various sources.
  • Daily Snapshot: Generate daily reports to provide a snapshot of financial activity, ensuring accuracy and operational efficiency.
  • Operational Excellence: Continuously monitor and optimize financial processes to guarantee smooth operations and adherence to financial regulations.
  • Financial Analysis: Analyze financial data to identify trends, discrepancies, and areas for improvement. Provide valuable insights to support decision-making.
  • Financial Compliance: Ensure compliance with financial regulations and industry standards. Stay updated on changes in financial regulations that may impact our operations.
  • Collaboration: Collaborate closely with cross-functional teams to align financial goals and achieve operational excellence.

Qualifications:

To excel in this role, you should possess the following qualifications and skills:

  • Bachelor's degree in Finance, Accounting, or a related field. A Master's degree is a plus.
  • Proven experience in a financial exchange or payment processing company with a high transaction volume.
  • Strong analytical skills with the ability to interpret complex financial data.
  • Knowledge of financial regulations and compliance standards.
  • Exceptional attention to detail and accuracy.
  • Proficiency in financial software and tools.
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills.
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced, dynamic environment.

Similar Roles:

This role is similar to positions in treasury, financial operations, and financial controllers. Professionals with experience in these areas are encouraged to apply.

NYC Pay Transparency Disclosure:

Salary Range: $80,000 to $180,000 annually plus equity and benefits.
This salary range is based on the current available market data, and represents the expected salary range for this role. Kalshi has minimal hierarchy and few titles, but has broad ranges of experience represented within roles. Should you have compensation expectations that exceed these bands, we'd love to hear from you and would welcome you to reach out to further discuss.

Our Culture

We are a group of people who work hard and get things done, and we're looking for more people like that! Meritocracy is at our core, and we value people who take ownership and figure (usually hard) things out. We think of Kalshi as a family bound together by our mission: we believe that this is the best (and most fun!) way to work. Kalshians are, by far, Kalshi's largest asset and we're obsessed with growing and investing in our people.
