Fraud QuantWho you are:

You stand on the intersection of the Algorithms-Engineer, Data Scientist, and Fraud-Analysts. Not many are there now – are you good enough to take the challenge and become one?


Stuff you’ll be doing:

  • Become an expert on analyzing data of online fraudster behavior, and act on it; review, debate and research case studies in order to enable our machine to get into the fraudsters’ mindset and anticipate their next move.
  • Invent, design and implement features into our automated machine learning model, using SQL and Python.
  • Find solutions to problems supposedly unsolvable – think like a hacker.
  • Collaborate with a team of A-player analysts, data scientist, and engineers to develop the next generation of Forter’s technology.

Stuff you’ll need:

  • A (very) fast mind, with strong (borderline obsessive) attention to generalization of the details. Psychometric score above 700 (or equivalent on other speed based tests, e.g. GMAT).
  • Excellent written English, internet wizard and technology enthusiast.
  • Open to learning something new, lots of creativity, a desire to solve problems.
  • Ability to work independently given abstract tasks, but also the patience to listen to someone else’s opinion (then politely argue to prove that you’re right).
  • Can be left alone to insert stuff into production-  good enough Algorithms-Engineer
  • Data analysis and machine learning background.

Would be very cool if you have:

  • Risk/intelligence experience.

What it’s like to work at Forter:

  • We’re super-picky about who we hire, so once you’re on board, you’re working with an amazing team.
  • Being exposed to cutting-edge technology and real production environments with significant impact on production services – catching the bad guys!
  • We love what we do, and it shows.
  • Weird hobbies are our thing, if you don’t have one – now’s the time
