  • Compile evidence to dispute chargeback with online payment processors.
  • Deal with escalations from the customers and internal stakeholders.
  • Take a holistic view of a user's transactional journey to identify bad actors.

A little about you:

  • Experience with SQL is highly desired.
  • Experience with data analysis, investigations, and an understanding of how fraudsters think.
  • Knowledgable in card-not-present fraud schemes, its risk prevention methods and detection tools for digital and virtual goods.
  • Experience mitigating online fraud, such as account takeover, phishing, online card testing, etc.
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills.
  • Creative thinker who considers problems from a customer perspective while being pragmatic and solutions oriented when solving them.
  • Ability to multitask and shift priorities on short notice, including working in a dynamic fast paced tech environment with multiple stakeholders.
  • Experience and or interest in cryptocurrency is also an asset.

The Trust & Safety team prioritizes user safety and a platform free of collusion and bad actors.

Your focus, and that of the overall team, will be promoting the best possible user experience with effective safeguards to mitigate harmful activity.
