Job Description:

The Client Protection (Fraud) organization at Bank of America is growing and looking for talented analysts to join our team! We are hiring smart, hungry, intellectually curious and hard-working candidates that will work on the following types of problems:

  • Building mathematically-derived algorithms to differentiate fraudulent transactions, applications, payments, system access and other activity from normal customer behavior

  • Digging into cases where fraud losses were incurred to determine what happened and why

  • You'll need to be detail-oriented and able to dig through a lot of data to determine root causes and recommend appropriate countermeasures

  • Deploying new fraud technology on our portfolio produced by vendors/data science partners (such as new scores), and ensuring that our fraud rules correctly use these new tools

  • You should have at least 5 years of work experience preferably in financial services.

  • All experience must be in an analytical capacity, including strategy development, data science, or modeling/scoring.

  • You should have extremely strong communication and presentation skills and be able to explain your work to a variety of audiences, senior and junior, technical and non-technical. PowerPoint skills should be advanced.

  • You should thrive in a fast paced environment and have great organizational and project management skills.
