As a User Experience Designer, you will play a significant role in leading the design of the command center and self-service portal. You will also have the opportunity to work with customers to embed Arkose Labs anti-fraud solutions into their site or app with a GUI that is visually seamless when compared to the customer’s own GUI. Working closely with stakeholders, you'll set the design direction, define priorities, identify areas of opportunity, and lead design efforts from concept through launch and beyond.
The Arkose Labs Platform detects suspicious characteristics of users of a website or app, and responds by issuing the user an interactive challenge-- a small puzzle to solve before continuing. The product challenge organization is responsible for the development of these visual challenges, which drain fraudsters of their resources..
