THE CHALLENGE

Eventbrite is big, bustling marketplace where anyone can post an event in minutes or buy a ticket in seconds. The Fraud and Trust & Safety teams make sure that all of that goes smoothly - our organizers get paid and our attendees find great experiences - even as we launch innovative features and expand into new markets across the world. Our data scientists make sure we do that without breaking a sweat and without our organizers knowing we’re there by designing low profile, high precision solutions to the ever-changing landscape of threats.


THE TEAM

The Risk and Trust & Safety group is a small, high performing, multi-disciplinary team ranging from chargeback specialists and fraud analysts to data scientists and engineers, all working toward the common goal of keeping Eventbrite users safe. We expect high quality contributions from every member, and we expect even more in terms of supporting each other to make that happen.
