Senior Manager, Fraud & Chargeback Operations

Remote, United States

Senior Manager, Fraud & Chargeback Operations

  • Remote, United States
  • Full-time


You’ll be the primary voice of the Fraud & Chargeback Operations function, regularly interacting with senior management and executive levels on matters concerning suspected fraud, spam, chargebacks, and other abuse. You’ll be supported by an Associate Manager in leading a group of specialists in investigating specific cases, while partnering with Risk Detection & Analytics to ensure our detection mechanisms are continuously up to date, best in class, and surfacing the right issues and data for the team’s review. You’ll influence fraud and chargeback policy balancing operator efficiency and loss prevention, form relationships with the fraud and chargeback peer community to ensure continued benchmarking, and always look to bring value to our creators.


There’s no denying it: all online marketplaces can provide opportunities for fraudsters and malicious actors. Our ability to track, record, and combat fraud at scale is required to serve our creators’ needs. Eventbrite is growing at a massive rate, and our team is keeping up with the volume. In 2021 we distributed 291 million tickets to 5.4 million events, in nearly 180 countries; processing hundreds of millions of tickets comes with a huge amount of exposure, and we’re charged with keeping it secure. We’ve built machine learning systems that can crunch through large amounts of data and make real time decisions, and great tools that help us parse through and visualize behavioral data, but at the heart of it all this is the ability to make the right call at the right time by expert analysts, data scientists and operational specialists. Our job is to protect our customers and Eventbrite from fraud and malicious acts, while ensuring our technology and process is seamless and delightful. 


The Fraud & Chargebacks team is a small group with diverse backgrounds. We are a crucial part of the larger PPO team (Policy & Platform Operations) who serves a critical role in allowing our community to experience Eventbrite in a way that fosters trust, safety, diversity, and inclusiveness, while also internally managing certain legal and compliance risks associated with the Eventbrite platform. We work cross-functionally with teams around the company to solve whatever challenges come our way, collaborating with analysts, data scientists and engineers to bring different quantitative and qualitative analytical skills. Our varied experiences help us look at the same problem sets in different ways to extract real insight.
