The mission of the Facebook Risk and Payments team is to enable anyone, anywhere to be able to pay and be paid with confidence. This can mean different things across our many payments products - from providing support to advertisers who need help paying their bill, helping charities onboard to receive donations, to identifying and resolving fraudulent games purchases. We’re looking for a rising second-year MBA student to spend a summer on the team, responsible for working on any and all operations related to Payments and Risk Management on Facebook. Who are you? You are someone who loves "big data", are detail-oriented, and are incredibly patient sorting through analytics. You approach problems as if they were opportunities, not challenges. You have business strategy skills to build the solutions necessary to ask the right ‘what if’ and ‘why’ questions and find the right answers, especially if that requires the engagement of other cross-functional teams and experts. You’re a phenomenal leader of people. You’re awesome. So please introduce yourself and tell us why you’re the perfect fit for the fastest moving, most impact-driven risk team out there!
