Senior Quantitative Risk Analyst at Signifyd
San Jose, CA, US
At Signifyd we’re creating a new market. We’re constantly improving and expanding the technology that has changed what fraud protection for e-commerce looks like. So we don’t have time for office politics. We understand that different people have different work styles and we thrive on variety while learning from each other. We’re all Signifyers, so we know that what needs to get done will get done.
Signifyd is a place where no one is going to tell you how to do your job. If you want help, you'll get it — from all quarters. But we pretty much figure out what needs to be done, who's in the best position to do it and then let that person roll-up her or his sleeves and have at it. We're protecting retailers from online fraud in a way that's never been done before and we could use your help if you're someone:
- Who believes challenges are best overcome by thinking differently.
- Who knows his or her role, but isn’t confined by it.
- Who’s greatest satisfaction comes from helping customers succeed and achieve their dreams.
- Who isn’t afraid to disagree, convincingly, civilly and honestly.
- Who will stop and hold the door for a colleague, even if you’re running late.
Oh, and a few particulars for this role:
The Merchant Risk Analytics team is fast-paced, high-energy, and diligent in identifying emerging fraud patterns and preventing fraud loss before it happens. We conduct stringent analysis of complex data sets, and set up multiple layers of business rules, models, and other processes to fight e-commerce fraud. We are a highly cross-functional team and regularly engage with Data Science, Customer Success, Risk Operations and Engineering to mitigate and eliminate fraud and meet merchant service-level objectives.
We’re looking for a rock-solid risk analyst to join a fast-paced start-up and hit the ground running. This person will work alongside a team of analysts to investigate and identify solutions to prevent and mitigate fraud. This person will be responsible for proactively identifying fraud patterns and minimizing our customers’  exposure to financial risk.
