We believe that a blockchain-based global economy can improve the lives of billions of people. But the same properties that make cryptocurrencies a force for good — permissionless, programmable, and instantaneous — can also make them susceptible to criminal and fraudulent activity, which causes harm to our financial system at unprecedented speed and scale.

At TRM, we're on a mission to build trust in digital assets, because the promise of crypto is too valuable to be impeded by bad actors. We provide a blockchain intelligence platform to law enforcement, financial institutions, and crypto firms to assist in the detection and prevention of cryptocurrency fraud and financial crime. Our vision is to build a company that can sustainably deliver on our mission for decades to come, enabling consumers to transact safely and securely on the blockchain.

  • Develop and maintain installation, operations, and configuration procedures.
  • Assist with the secure integration of cloud applications and infrastructure.
