Fraud Analyst (Student - Part time)

About us:

Digital commerce is built on trust. At every point along the eCommerce journey, businesses must make a critical decision: Can I trust this customer? Answering this simple question accurately and instantly is powerful—it can accelerate revenue growth and strengthen a company’s connection with its customers. How do we do it? Forter was founded on the insight that it's not about what is being purchased, nor where— but who is behind the interaction.

The Forter Decision Engine finds patterns across more than one billion identities in our dataset. We isolate fraudsters and protect customers—ensuring everyone gets the experience they deserve. Given that trust is central to how we operate, Forter is very much driven by a defined set of values. We attract remarkable talent and have retention and engagement levels that are well above benchmarks. We’re meticulous about strengthening our culture as we grow and ensuring this is an environment where people can have an outsized impact.

About the role:

Forter is looking for a part-time Fraud Analyst to join Forter’s Analytics group.

You are: goal oriented, fast and innovative thinker, aiming to solve complex challenges with lots of creativity.

You have strong attention to detail, knowing when to dive deeper and when the juice ain’t worth squeezing.

In Forter you’ll become an expert on online fraudsters’ behavior: review, debate and research case studies in order to get into the fraudster's mindset and anticipate their next move.

Cultivate new paths for fighting fraud, and take part in building our cutting edge technology - writing production code to implement our insights and logics into the decisioning system.

What you’ll be doing:

Invent, design and implement attributes/features in and above our automated human and machine learning model, using SQL and Python.

Play a central part in Forter’s business cycle. Meet customers and collaborate with marketing/business initiatives.

Find solutions to problems supposedly unsolvable – by thinking like a hacker.

Collaborate with a team of A-player analysts, data scientists and engineers to develop the next generation of Forter’s technology.

What you’ll need:

A (very) fast mind, with strong (borderline obsessive) attention to detail. We trust you to find the clues and reveal the fraudsters, even when they work hard to cover their tracks. Psychometric score above 700 (or equivalent on other speed based tests, e.g. GMAT).

Excellent written English, internet wizardry and enthusiasm for technology.

Openness to learning, lots of creativity, and a desire to solve tough problems.

Ability to work independently when given abstract tasks, but also the patience to listen to someone else’s opinion (then politely argue to prove that you’re right).

Availability to work 50% role

Would be very cool if you have:

SQL/Python experience (we’ll teach you if you don’t have the background).

Risk/intelligence experience.

A data analysis and machine learning background.

Life as a Forterian:

We are a team of over 500 Forterians spread across 3 different continents. Our success so far in the marketplace has allowed us to achieve a total series F valuation of over $3 Billion, making us the most valuable privately-held fraud prevention company globally. Our investors include: Tiger Global, Bessemer, Sequoia Capital, March Capital, and Salesforce Ventures.

At Forter, we believe unique people create unique ideas, and valuable experience comes in many forms. So, even if your background doesn't match everything we have listed in the job description, we still encourage you to apply and tell us why your skills and values could be an asset to us. By welcoming different perspectives, we grow together as humans and as a company.
