Head of Product


Amsterdam – Fulltime

Like no other, you understand how customer insights are translated into concrete product deliverables. You create a product vision and strategy to realise the growth targets and bring them to life together with the team.

bout ComplianceWise  
Corruption, money laundering and cash fraud is an (inter)national problem. Billions are laundered every year. To prevent money laundering, organizations must continuously investigate their clients. An obligation that on the one hand contributes to a transparent and honest working environment. On the other hand, this obligation to investigate is experienced as an enormous regulatory burden.   

At ComplianceWise, we have developed Grub. Thanks to Grub, these organizations can quickly, easily, but also fully comply with the anti-money laundering regulations, including the obligation to investigate. In addition, they can kill two birds with one stone, because with Grub they also contribute to a better world.   

We are currently helping more than 400 offices in the target group administration, accounting and tax advisors with our software. An industry with enormous growth potential because only 15% of the total market currently invests in anti-money laundering software. It is therefore ComplianceWise’s goal to become the largest player in this industry in the Netherlands and Europe within a few years.   

The Team  
ComplianceWise’s culture can be described as transparent, open, entrepreneurial, down-to-earth and non-hierarchical. You will work within a scale-up, a dynamic club with young people where growth and development are combined with achieving ambitious goals. Our values are:  

  •  We make it happen 
  • We succeed as a team

  • We embrace honesty 

About the position 
Our goal is to win the Dutch accountancy market in the short term. In doing so, it is a requirement that we more than double our revenue in the coming years.

You are the person who can accelerate our product development and take our product to the next stage. As Head of Product, you look ahead and create the vision of how you think the product should be developed so that it offers more value to the target accountants.  Initially, the focus is the Netherlands, but the product must be made ready to scale to other countries within 18 months.
