About the Position Raise has a number of exciting new initiatives in the pipeline this year, and we need a talented and experienced Sr. Software Engineer, focused in Machine Learning, to join the team driving one of those initiatives – rZero. rZero was born out of the realization that, in order to combat some of the most sophisticated and complex attacks in e-commerce, a platform was needed; one designed to evaluate the intentions of users based on digital behavior.
The rZero team draws on decades of experience from its team of market-leading data scientists, engineers, and executives with extensive backgrounds from industry pioneers such as eBay, LexisNexis Risk Solutions, American Express, and PayPal. The r0 fraud detection platform strikes the fine balance between security and customer friction and provides digital behavioral risk evaluation with pinpoint accuracy while giving partners peace of mind to make decisions instantly and confidently.
Our Sr. Software Engineer - Machine Learning is expected to design and code solutions which translate the needs of machine learning/data science teams into production. These solutions should be performant, scalable, well-tested, and written cleanly. The Sr. Software Engineer is responsible for understanding how to translate the needs of an offline learning system into production without affecting performance in a major way, both from the production system perspective as well as the algorithm perspective. The ideal candidate will possess a broad technical background including both production software engineering experience as well as machine learning experience.
