Because you belong at Twilio

The Who, What, Why and Where

It is critical for Twilio to protect the integrity of our communications platform against fraud, and the Fraud Operations team is on the front line of this ongoing effort. Fraud Operations works closely with our fraud engineering team to protect Twilio and Twilio’s customers by thwarting would-be fraudsters. To continue this effort, we are now in search of a strong people manager for our Fraud Operations team. 


The right candidate will be focused on serving customers, excel at managing a team, and have extensive experience fighting fraud in all its various forms. You should be passionate about making a career out of fraud prevention. More specifically, we seek someone who has:

  • A minimum of two years of experience leading a team as a manager or team lead
  • Advanced knowledge and ability with querying languages (eg. SQL) and business intelligence tools
  • Outstanding verbal and written communication skills
  • The ability to make quick decisions with limited data
  • A bachelor's degree

As a domain expert, you should know the top fraud vectors and how fraud behavior will change as we make changes in our fraud prevention tools and our products. We don’t expect you to be a data scientist; however, you should have sufficient “data chops” to analyze data using SQL and business intelligence tools. You will need to make data-driven decisions and closely collaborate with our data scientists to improve our fraud prevention tools.

Although not prerequisites for the role, the following are “nice-to-haves”:

  • Strong computer science and/or data management background
  • Telecom experience
  • A minimum of four years experience working in fraud prevention (also known as risk management or trust and safety) for a technology company
  • MBA, MS in a relevant field, or other similar advanced degree
  • Basic understanding of and comfort with software development, including programming experience
  • Fluent in additional languages


As a manager in our Fraud Operations team, you will lead a team responsible for preventing fraud, supporting customers with fraud-related issues, managing risk, and overseeing certain payment-related operations (e.g., chargebacks). More specifically, you will:

  • Use Twilio’s tools and your own investigative powers to detect and prevent fraudulent activity, all while ensuring that we do not have false positives that negatively affect our legitimate customers
  • Streamline our operations by applying lean principles
  • Collaborate with product managers and software engineers to design the tools necessary to further automate and streamline our processes 
  • Influence stakeholders across the company to develop scalable solutions to prevent issues moving forward. Fraudsters are ever changing their patterns so we need to evolve rapidly
  • Enable an already high-performing team by providing excellent coaching and actionable feedback
  • Execute on near-term goals while also moving towards a long-term vision. Your team should be constantly delivering projects that will make our fraud defenses stronger and our team more effective. 


Twilio’s mission is to fuel the future of communications, and the mission of the Fraud Operations team is to protect the integrity of Twilio’s communications platform against fraudulent activity. Your leadership will be critical to the success of this mission. Our customers and partners need to be able to trust that Twilio’s platform is protected against fraud 24 x 7 x 365.
