About the Role

In this position you will work with closely with our Fraud and Compliance Operations teams to identify transactional signals and behaviors, create rules around the patterns of these signals and behaviors, which drive both queue creation for case review and the development of cohorts we can use to identify where the highest impact is to the business.
