You would like to do something meaningful with your development and software architecture skills? Drive change and inspire fellow developers? Help us to build software that solves real fraud cases! Our goal is to build the most customer centric fraud prevention products to one day eliminate online fraud.

Online fraud is organised crime, and on the rise. Every month we have to process over 10 million online transactions. So think about the scale of our software. We have to make decision in real-time, based on our trained machine learning models. We believe in software with high code quality. That’s why we chose Scala as our main language. As we take functional programming seriously, we try to constantly improve ourselves, but we also understand the cost of being pure functional. In order to provide a streaming platform, we use technologies like Kafka, Akka, ElasticSearch, MongoDB, and many more.
