Job Description

Job description
The Emerging Fraud Strategies Group within the Client Protection Organization is looking for experienced analytical professionals to join our growing application fraud team.  
We are looking for smart, energetic candidates with strong technical backgrounds, a great sense of urgency and an excellent approach to teamwork.  We do not require you to have a background in fraud, and while this is advantageous, we can teach you what you need to know as long as you have the right technical skills.
Roles will include some of the following work, depending on the specific job/team, including electronic money movement, digital authentication, scam/mule, and application fraud strategies teams:
-  Proactively identify opportunity for new fraud strategy development using statistical and analytical techniques with the goal of being able to identify and mitigate new and emerging fraud threats with an eye toward maximum fraud prevention and reducing false positives and negative client experience.
-  Build and optimize data-driven, analytically based fraud rule strategies which could encompass application fraud, digital money movement products, device authentication strategy, etc. 
-  Successful candidate will work across diverse channels, products, and fraud types to build strategies for optimal authentication that balances effectiveness, coverage, customer experience, and resource constraints.  This will include executive level presentation and communication skills.
-  Partnering with technology and business partners to implement new technology and new products, ensuring fraud risks are controlled.   Examples of this will involve interfacing with product and channel leads to ensure that a P&L based analysis of fraud impacts are correctly evaluated to care for client experience, revenue and fraud risk.
-  Optimization of existing detection strategies to determine areas where rules can be adjusted to declined fewer false positives and improve the ROI and overall performance of our fraud strategies.
-  Identifying new sources of data (internal or vendor-provided) that can enrich our existing fraud detection processes, be added to our decision systems, and allow for new detection strategies to be developed.
-  Analysis of our fraud models to assess performance and effectiveness and making recommendations to continue using or redevelop these models.
-  Development of both ad-hoc and more standardized reporting (MIS).
If you think you have what takes, and want to join a fun, dynamic group that is solving critical problems, please apply!
