Do you believe that people will and should compassionately support one another to create a better world?  Well, we do!

Serving as the world’s most trusted fundraising platform, GoFundMe is committed to creating a better world by making it safe and easy for people to support causes they’re passionate about. When someone sees a need—whether it’s in their neighbourhood or across the globe—they can turn their compassion into action through GoFundMe. Our customers have raised over €8  billion for their personal causes, making GoFundMe a top 200 website in the US based on traffic, with a monthly audience of over 100 million people.

GoFundMe is a brand that people trust, known for its ease-of-use, real results, rapid customer service response times, and the first and only fraud protection guarantee for social giving: the GoFundMe Guarantee.

Trust is an integral part of GoFundMe's business. It drives growth, builds and nurtures our brand, and ensures that we always do the right thing by our customers. The Risk & Compliance team is at the front line of GoFundMe’s efforts to protect donors, campaign organizers, beneficiaries, and our company from financial crimes and abuse. As a member of the Risk & Compliance team, you will be responsible for reviewing donor transactions, handling payment disputes, analyzing campaigns for fraud and money laundering schemes, and enforcing compliance with relevant laws and regulations. This is an incredibly rewarding job where you are required to operate at an impeccable level of consistency while mastering new techniques and technologies to ensure GoFundMe remains the most trusted place to give online.

  • Empathizer - Do you genuinely care about people and want to help them? Do you believe that most people are fundamentally good and deserve to be protected from bad actors?
  • Team player - Can your colleagues rely on you to provide your best work and can you make sure they're doing the same?
  • Attention to detil - Did you notice I spelled "detail" wrong?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
