Risk Investigations Lead

Facebook's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Through our family of apps and services, we're building a different kind of company that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways to share what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer together. Whether we're creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities - we're just getting started.

The mission of the Facebook Risk and Payments team is to enable anyone, anywhere to be able to pay and be paid with confidence. This can mean different things across our many payments products - from providing support to advertisers who need help paying their bill, helping charities onboard to receive donations, to identifying and resolving fraudulent transactions. Within the Risk and Payments team, Risk Investigations is responsible for end-to-end fraud management for Facebook's suite of payments products. We define performance metrics, build monitoring and alerting systems, and use a data-driven approach to investigate and respond to new fraud trends.
We are looking for a manager to drive the team's direction as well grow the skills and professional development of each individual. Our ideal candidate is passionate about data, has a track record of influencing change within large organizations, and loves developing people.
