Qualifications

  • Energetic and flexible. We own the actions. We own the impact. We iterate fast because fraudsters do. And we take fraud seriously.
  • Tech lead and role model. You are the team’s role model for technical excellence and communication style. You will lead the technical decisions and bring up the team’s capabilities in Machine Learning and Fraud Analytics.
  • Leader of the people. 3+ years of experience leading elite data science and cross functional teams on end to end development and deployment of business AI/ML projects, achieving a balance between business needs and team members’ personal career goals.

You are a domain expert, you know the right timing for the right decisions, and you know where to look for signs of trouble before they become obvious.
  • Business acumen. 5+ years of experience solving business problems with quantitative methods. You understand business priorities, pain points and root causes as if they were your own, and always proactively identify and propose long term data driven solutions to help shaping strategic and tactical decision making. 
  • Product sense. You always start from business problems, not technical details. Even better, you start from the press release of the final product, and the FAQ you might anticipate from customers, management and stakeholders.
  • Everything data, automated. 5+ years of experience streamlining and automating quantitative model implementation and monitoring processes, including data visualization and anomaly alerting.
  • Stakeholder management. 5+ years of managing stakeholders, complex multi-team project management, taking end-to-end responsibilities, and ownership over a project.

An Insider's view of Wish

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We do a lot of cross-functional work with other teams to create promotions, campaigns, articles, social media content, videos, and more. We also provide regional insights to stakeholders and exchange ideas to help grow each market. I love looking back and seeing how much my role has evolved since I started working at Wish!

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My goal coming out of university was to learn how to scale the infrastructure of a growing company. Larger tech companies have mostly solved these scalability problems and Wish gave me the opportunity to solve tough problems hands on. Wish is now handling 100x the traffic since I joined and I'm still learning new things everyday.
