The Machine Learning group within the CCB Risk Fraud Modeling team is responsible for developing and implementing best-in-class fraud prevention and detection models and analytical tools. The team provides diverse models and analytical tools used to identify potentially fraudulent transactions across different lines of business (card, retail, auto, merchant services).

Working for one of the largest banks, card issuers, and payments processors in the US, you will be fighting crime and protecting consumers and small businesses from financial fraud, including account takeovers and identity theft, with mathematical modeling.

In this role, you will be the analytical expert for identifying and retooling suitable machine learning algorithms that can enhance the fraud risk ranking of particular transactions and/or applications for new products.

This includes a balance of feature engineering, feature selection, and developing and training machine learning algorithms using cutting edge technology to extract predictive models/patterns from data gathered for billions of transactions. Your expertise and insights will help us effectively utilize big data platforms, data assets, and analytical capabilities to control fraud loss and improve customer experience.

You will work in an industrial R&D/skunkworks environment, developing innovative predictive models on a dataset in the hundreds of TBs and higher. As there are no known model architectures that are effective on fraud datasets in general, you will need to develop them.
