Data Scientist - Risk

THE CHALLENGE
Eventbrite is big, bustling marketplace where anyone can post an event in minutes or buy a ticket in seconds. The Fraud and Trust & Safety teams make sure that all of that goes smoothly - our organizers get paid and our attendees find great experiences - even as we launch innovative features and expand into new markets across the world. Our data scientists make sure we do that without breaking a sweat and without our organizers knowing we’re there by designing low profile, high precision solutions to the ever-changing landscape of threats.

You’ll leverage our decisioning platform to quickly test, improve, and ship models. And you’ll collaborate closely with our engineering team to make sure your solution makes it from the lab to the field exactly the way you envisioned.
