Job Description

As a company that offers clear and transparent financing to consumers, we are extremely diligent about ensuring that our merchant partnerships are successful for Affirm, our merchants, and most importantly, our customers! Our merchant partners encompass various industries and business models, ranging from venture-backed e-commerce startups to publicly-traded enterprises.

As a Merchant Risk Analyst, you will assess financial risk related to credit, fraud and identity associated with the merchants. You will also coordinate with cross-functional partners to assess non-financial risk – brand, reputational, legal and compliance risk.

The ideal candidate will have knowledge or experience in e-commerce underwriting and/or commercial lending. They will also have a solid understanding of evaluating merchant financial risk based on 3rd party data, credit reports, and other merchant attributes. Prior work experience in payments, lending, banking or financial institutions is a plus!

What You’ll Do

  • Assess brand, compliance, fraud and financial risk and determine credit exposure risk on new and existing merchants
  • Use business credit reports, financial statements, investigative research tools, and financial market data to conduct risk assessment of Affirm’s merchants
  • Investigate and use new sources of third party data to assess merchant financial risk
  • Conduct ongoing monitoring of credit, fraud, and dispute/chargeback trends by merchants
  • Business Process Improvement: Leverage your knowledge to provide guidance towards the automation/improvements of merchant risk evaluation

What We Look For

  • 3-5  years of experience in assessing merchant risk in a function such as Merchant/Seller Risk Management, Fraud, Collections, or Merchant Underwriting
  • Experience working with cross functional partners across the organization, especially Sales and Business Development teams
  • Experience reviewing financial statements, business credit reports and payment processor statements
  • Ownership mentality: Demonstrate an appropriate sense of accountability, ownership, urgency and execution
