To sum it up...
Online fraud is organised crime, and on the rise. Every month we have to process over 10 million online transactions. Become the Sherlock Holmes of the web and help us to build software that solves real fraud cases! In this never-ending race, we are fighting the bad guys with technology!
We are currently developing the next generation of our fraud identification product family “FRIDA” - from scratch! FRIDA enables our customers’ fraud managers to make decisions in real-time or interactively, based on rules or our trained machine learning models. The challenge is to build a product that makes fraud managers quickly understand why we think a transaction is fraudulent or not, and how it is connected to other transactions so one can quickly react on it to prevent payment defaults.
The underlying microservice architecture of FRIDA divides the product into components that are each owned by one dedicated development team. We are looking for a Scala Developer that supports the Risk Assessment team in which the actual assessment of transactions takes place.
Help us to build the business logic that determines detailed assessments based on transaction data and graph statistics and to implement this into our software! In Risk Assessment, we currently use
Scala, Cats and Cats Effect libraries, MongoDB and GRPC, and adhere to the functional programming paradigm. We optimise our product for performance and scalability. The team follows agile methods and collaborates on eye-level, e.g. in pair programming sessions and code reviews.
That is why we are looking for someone who wants to become an active, communicative and fun team member of Risk Assessment. Someone who wants to get involved in actively shaping the future development of the product. The team works independently and owns their component. That means being responsible for the whole software lifecycle and deciding on your own how to implement requirements.
