As a Business Analyst on the Fraud Prevention team, you will:
Work directly with engineers and product managers. Youll be part of a small team of software engineers and analysts that can roll out new functionality in a matter of weeks, not months. If you can identify high impact product changes, well get them launched. On this team, you wont be a data jockey running simple queries and wondering if anyone looked at your recommendations.
Be a subject matter expert in a business-critical topic for the company. You will ask questions, dive deep, and understand fraud and product concepts better than anyone else at the company. We will trust you and rely on your judgment to inform decisions that impact our product and customers both immediately and for years to come.
Grow with the company. The scope and scale of analyses you do today will change as the company grows. You will be challenged to understand a business that is always changing and you will have opportunities to learn new quantitative approaches or toolsets to keep up with that change.
Energetic. You continually exhibit high energy and an ability to stay positive under pressure. Must be a self-starter but able to work independently, as well as work in a team-oriented and fast paced environment.
A truth seeker. You ask why, and you question every assumption. If youve ever said oh, I just did it that way because Important Person said so, you wont do well here. We need you to probe assumptions, question the status quo, and follow up on unexpected data results.
Confident in your data. You can explain the method to your analysis and independently validate your results. Once the data supports your ideas, youre willing to advocate your recommendations to any stakeholder that needs to buy-in (fortunately for you, were quick to support great ideas).
Minimum three years of relevant experience in a business analyst/data analyst/BI analyst role
A working understanding of SQL and at least one modern analytical language (R, SAS, Python, etc.)
Project planning skills, an eye for details, and time management skills. You will be balancing multiple concurrent projects and responding to ad hoc requests.
Experience at startups and/or large consumer internet / technology companies
Strong communication skills both in writing and in meetings, including with senior leaders. You dont struggle to get your point across.
Master’s degree (Business, Engineering, Statistics, Computer Science, Mathematics or related field)
Background in finance and/or experience in financial planning and analysis a definite plus
Data Visualization through Tableau or similar reporting software
Experience in online credit, lending, risk management, and payments is helpful.
