About the Role:

Remitly is seeking an IT Audit Senior who can support the effort to establish and shape our IT SOX program. As a member of Internal Audit, you will be an internal control champion who works across Remitly's distributed system landscape to educate around SOX and IT general controls. Using your experience partnering with auditors, management team members, and process and control owners, you will roll up your sleeves to provide guidance on how to design and implement the SOX controls, define remediation plans, and provide oversight of outsourced testing resources.

This role will report into the IT Audit Manager.

You Will:

  • Assist with performing and documenting scoping of the IT SOX program.
  • Provide guidance around IT processes, risks, and controls - both for IT general controls and IT-dependent business process controls such as application controls and report-reliant controls. This will include assisting with ongoing risk assessments, control advisory (this will be limited given this role will need to remain independent as a member of the Internal Audit team), evaluation of segregation of duties, and process improvement opportunities.
  • Collaborate with distributed IT teams (Corporate IT, Finance IT, Engineering) to advise on IT risk management and the ongoing evaluation and update of IT policies, procedures, SOPs, flowcharts, data flow diagrams, and narratives.
  • Coordinate the execution of internal audits and the needs of internal and external auditors, including planning and coordinating walkthroughs, and testing of IT general controls, application controls, and key system-generated reports. This includes review of internal audit testing workpapers.
  • Evaluate and ensure remediation of identified control deficiencies in a timely manner
  • Oversee and support the SOC review program, including assisting to obtaining relevant SOC reports, coordinating with control owners for the performance of reviews, and providing status updates.
  • Monitor for emerging risks and help project manage control design for new products, processes, system implementation, or emerging areas identified by the Internal Audit risk assessment, and work with process owners and projects teams to ensure appropriate internal controls are in place prior to launch.
  • Assist in the preparation of executive presentations and participate in recurring SOX meetings

You Have:

  • Bachelor's degree in a related field such as information systems, computer science, business, finance or accounting required
  • Minimum experience of 3 years in internal or external auditing, with emphasis on IT auditing, preferably with public companies with complex IT environments or Big 4 accounting firms
  • A detailed understanding of the general computer control areas and the IT governance framework (COBIT), Sarbanes Oxley, and the COSO framework
  • Proven experience with evaluating security and controls on various on-premise, homegrown, and cloud-based technologies, with experience auditing DevOps and Agile environments that leverage AWS
  • Solid communication skills, including a proven ability to articulate to others outside of Internal Audit (e.g. Finance, IT, and Engineering) complex IT risks, their impact, and the required action plans to address those risks
  • One or more of the following professional certifications required: Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), Certified Information Systems Security Professionals (CISSP); Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) or Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP)
  • Experienced using spreadsheet, slide, and flowcharting tools
  • Preferred: Financial technology or financial services experience
  • Preferred: Experience with audit based data analytics
  • Preferred: Experience with managing, implementing, and using audit and compliance management tools (e.g. AuditBoard, Workiva)

Our Benefits:

  • Unlimited paid time off
