  • Based on data-driven analysis, formulating risk solutions to ensure optimal balance between user experience, business enablement, operational expense and loss exposure related to proposed solutions

  • Work closely with product teams on development of new products to identify potential gaps that might create loss, and define requirements to mitigate those risks.

  • Have a good understanding of general business trends and directions to be able to put own work in the broad business context.

  • Work with various partners within PayPal to coordinate the execution of fraud mitigation solutions.

  • Demonstrate flexibility that is needed to succeed within a matrix organization while being proactive and comfortable with working alongside stakeholders from different domains.
