The Data Science team builds production machine learning models that are the core of Signifyd's product.

We help businesses of all sizes minimize their fraud exposure and grow their sales. We also improve the e-commerce shopping experience for individuals by reducing the number of folks' orders that are incorrectly declined and by making account hijacking less profitable for criminals.

The team has end-to-end ownership of our decisioning engine, from research and development to online performance and risk management.

We value collaboration and team ownership -- no one should feel they're solving a hard problem alone.

Together we help each other develop our skills through peer review of experiments and code, group paper study to deepen our ML and stats understanding, and frequent knowledge-sharing through live demos, write-ups, and special cross-team projects.

The Data Science and Engineering team at Signifyd have always had a strong contingent of remote folks, individual contributors and team leads. The challenges of working remotely aren't new to us and we have experienced iterative improvements to our remote culture.
