Overview

Are you passionate about investigating financial crime? Are you excited about using data to identify suspicious patterns or trends? Then the SMB Risk Analyst position with WePay may be the right role for you.

Each one of our Analysts directly impacts our bottom line and our customers. Risk Analysts are responsible for building a trusted environment for our customers by investigating suspicious payment activities that are identified by our proprietary risk technology. These investigations help to reduce fraud losses to the Company and identify and limit financial exposure via credit risk assessments. WePay’s technology leverages non-traditional data sources such as social media, platform data, as well as traditional personal and business data to detect suspicious activity and mitigate losses.

In this position, you will constantly be faced with challenging and interesting investigations. That means, no two days are the same. The individual who joins this team will have a chance to work in the areas of risk product, policy, detection, and analytics, as well as anti-money laundering and sanctions compliance.  You will have an opportunity to expand your skills and be able to determine your future career path.

What You Will Do

  • Investigate suspicious accounts, users, and payments
  • Assist in building and fine-tuning our automated risk rules engine
  • Merchant underwriting and merchant risk mitigation
  • Perform research and investigation with respect to issues related to money laundering and sanctions administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)
  • Assist in making updates to desktop procedures
  • Draft and file suspicious activity reports with the US government

What We Are Looking For

  • Previous experience in transactional compliance or fraud reviews is a plus (preferably in the payments industry)
  • Strong critical thinking and deduction skills
  • Experience gathering and sifting through information with a sharp eye for detail
  • Ability to solve puzzles and recommend solutions from limited information
  • Experience in spotting trends and building processes to counteract them
  • Knowledge of SQL queries or Microsoft pivot tables is a plus
  • Ability to multi-task in a fast-paced, changing environment

About WePay

WePay’s mission is to make commerce seamless. Our products help software companies integrate payments into their applications – thereby empowering small businesses and individuals to get paid easily and quickly using their go-to apps and software. Our customers include BigCommerce, GoFundme, Meetup and Freshbooks, just to name a few. By joining forces with JPMorgan Chase, a global financial services firm with over $2.5 trillion in assets that serves millions of customers worldwide, WePay is now able to connect our customers seamlessly into a range of banking services beyond payments.

WePay is a unique place to work and offers the best of both worlds. WePay has a FinTech startup culture that emphasizes transparency, collaboration and career growth, with the ability to work on small, nimble teams. However, now combined with the power of JPMorgan Chase, employees are also able to create change at scale and have an opportunity to truly disrupt and shape FinTech.
