Do you believe that people 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 neighborhood or across the globe—they can turn their compassion into action through GoFundMe. Our customers have raised over $15 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. To become the trusted brand in social fundraising, we created an easy-to-use product, built a Customer Care team that delivers rapid support to our customers, and established the first and only donor protection guarantee in the industry: the GoFundMe Guarantee.
An industry leader, GoFundMe’s Trust & Safety department leverages a variety of technical tools to assist our talented and motivated team in protecting our customers from fraud. By protecting the opportunity to give safely online, we drive growth, strengthen our brand, and do the right thing by our customers.
As a member of the Safety team, you work closely with the other functions of Customer Operations and Communications teams to protect customers and the brand. Within Trust & Safety, one part of the team focuses on account investigations and proactive misuse, while this role is more designed for handling content moderation review and policy escalations, helping ensure funds are safely delivered, and more. This is an incredibly fast-paced job where you are required to consider all options, operate at an impeccable level of consistency, and collaborate to find the right solution in your quest to keep GoFundMe safe.
We have built an extraordinary group of driven and intelligent professionals who focus on developing their skills and moving the department forward in the exciting space of social fundraising. We are looking to add talented people who will protect and strengthen our global trusted community and master new techniques and technologies to ensure GoFundMe remains the most trusted place to give online.
