Signifyd helps businesses of all sizes minimize their fraud exposure and grow their sales. Signifyd improves the e-commerce shopping experience for everyone by reducing the number of false positive declines of good buyers and by making fraud less profitable for criminals.

The Data Science organization at Signifyd is responsible for building, maintaining, and monitoring production ML models and risk management tools that are the core of Signifyd's product. The Senior Analyst will be part of the Merchant Solutions team within the Data Science organization. The Merchant Solutions team maintains a balance between custom and scalable solutions for Signifyd’s customers, and the Senior Analyst will be a direct influencer on how to balance the team’s approach of custom vs scalable solution development. In addition to influencing the team’s approach, the Senior Analyst will also help ensure solutions are achieving their desired results and make recommendations to adjust approaches as needed.

In terms of culture, we value collaboration and team ownership -- no one should feel they're solving a hard problem alone. Working across job functions, team boundaries, and hierarchies is not only encouraged but is required to be successful at Signifyd. We’re all in the same boat, and value team members that both seek to influence the direction of travel, and actively contribute to helping Signifyd improve the e-commerce shopping experience.
