Fraud Analyst - Contract

Do you love challenges? Do you hate to lose?  Do you love making a difference?  And do you hate bad guys? If you answered 'YES' to each, Signifyd may be the place for you.

We build software systems that catch bad guys.  Using all available payment, user, and machine data, we separate legitimate credit card transactions from fraudulent ones in under 400ms.  That means building large-scale systems which reduce the complexity of human purchasing behaviors into simple and quick decisions.

Our fraud analysts are the tip of the spear in the fight against fraud. They do the deep research into what constitutes "normal" purchasing behavior and what constitutes "suspicious" behavior.  They work closely with our engineers who build systems around analyst insights. To succeed in this position, a person needs to be resourceful, empathetic, and deeply curious about how and why someone would commit fraud.  It's a competition between you and the bad guys, and we are looking for those special folks who won't let the bad guys win.

You'll join a team of dedicated fraud experts who play a pivotal role in the growth and expansion of our service. Team members will have a huge impact on shaping this evolving department, which offers tremendous opportunity for growth, learning and leadership. This team is quick moving and customer-focused whose mission is to maximize merchant revenue while minimizing fraud.  We are looking for enthusiastic and passionate individuals who work hard, play hard, and ensure our customers succeed. Note: this is a contract position.
