Senior Risk Analyst / Fraud Protection Lead (Blockchain Marketplace)

Dapper Labs is at an inflection point in our journey and it might be the perfect time for you to join us. Less than 6 months ago we launched NBA Top Shot on the new Flow blockchain and it is already on track to be the fastest-growing marketplace in history. Over $50 million in sales in the past 30 days – we now need to scale our systems to handle the demand.

We are building out a world-class fraud protection team to safeguard our community as we continue growing this unprecedented peer to peer marketplace. Our priorities are to protect the experience of customers trading on the marketplace at all costs while allowing regulatory-compliant withdrawals as quickly and easily as possible.


The ideal candidate:

Previous experience working against payment fraud and or Anti-Money Laundering (AML) in high-pressure, time-sensitive environments is necessary, ideally serving passionate communities. You'll be ready for the pace of a high-growth startup and excited to put the systems and sweat equity in place to help take us to the next level.

That said titles or years of experience don't matter to us – impact, authenticity, and values alignment do. Your goal will be to help accelerate Dapper's growth as a trusted platform by providing insights and data in order to protect our community and user-base.

We're looking for analysts and hands-on leaders who can help us protect against fraud while ensuring an awesome customer experience – if you think you should lead or be a part of this team, please apply and tell us why.


A little about us:

Dapper Labs is the world’s first blockchain entertainment company. We are the creators of industry leading experiences including CryptoKitties and NBA Top Shot, as well as Dapper Wallet: the simplest way to manage your assets and use the blockchain. In addition, we are the developers behind Flow: a new decentralized blockchain and cryptocurrency developed from the ground up for scalability and ease of use.

We believe in an open digital future: one where people own the assets they pay for and have full transparency into the software they're using. We believe users should have the choice to leave apps without leaving the underlying network, and that the users and developers that constitute a network should benefit directly from the value they're helping create. Crypto, or blockchain, is the technology that enables this future. Blockchains are public computers that anyone can access, everyone can trust, and no-one can block or take down. Currencies and collectibles are only scratching the surface of what's possible.

Dapper Labs' mission is to make the world a more open, empowering, and enjoyable place through consumer adoption of decentralized technologies. Our investors are leading VCs including Fred Wilson (USV), Chris Dixon (Andreessen Horowitz) and David Pakman (Venrock) as well as Samsung and Google Ventures. We also have incredible angel investors including top athletes and artists as well as the founders of Dreamworks, Electronic Arts, Zynga, Reddit, AngelList, and Coinbase, among others.

  • Analyze chargeback data to identify fraud trends and prepares chargeback reports.
Growth opportunity:
  • Improve operational efficiency (reporting, tooling etc.)
  • Work with product to determine better user flows for various procedures (user experience with respect to aml, withdraws, and credit card processing)
  • Convert analytic insights into recommendations for specific fraud projects and initiatives
  • Work with the fraud team to determine user-facing policies and experience (iie. marketplace policy)
