Build fraud prevention products to secure payments across Southeast Asia.

Mission

The fraud team is building innovative fraud prevention products with the aim of securing online payments for businesses across Southeast Asia. By leveraging AI and machine learning on the vast amounts of transactional and identity data collected across the years, we are well positioned to help reduce the ~USD 300 million(1.6% of revenue) in losses due to fraud experienced by Southeast Asia’s businesses. This will help businesses focus on growth without fearing about losses due to fraud.

Data analysts in the fraud team are responsible for deriving insights from the multiple data sources that we have to inform product decisions with regards to feature engineering, model building etc. They are also responsible for building monitoring dashboards to detect potential fraud and therefore helping our merchants and Xendit to prevent losses due to fraud.

We are looking to expand the suite of features for our fraud detection product and are looking for passionate data analysts who have a deep interest in data, applied sciences or machine learning  to join our team in building a scalable fraud prevention product for Southeast Asia. Join us if you would like to contribute to our cause in making the payment space safer and free of fraud and abuse.
