We are looking for an exceptional customer-facing Threat Analyst to help our prospects and customers optimize their value within BioCatch solutions.

The BioCatch Threat Analyst is a consultancy role that involves a combination of skills. You will be comfortable completing advanced analytics, advising customers on fraud detection/prevention and strategy with your domain knowledge expertise and communicating with customers from C-level to operational fraud investigators. This role is unique in the industry and to be successful, you must be a motivated self-starter who can ramp-up quickly and work autonomously. With a support network of Threat Analysts distributed globally, you will become a key individual in the global fight against digital fraud.

It can be difficult to distill this role down to a regular day-to-day, because every day is different, however some key responsibilities include:

  • Use a data-driven approach to prove the value of BioCatch against success criteria for proof of value and pilot projects.
  • Educate potential and new customers on BioCatch and Behavioural Biometrics specifically for targeting their key problems and use cases.
  • Work tactically with customers to deploy rules for acute fraud attacks.
  • Continually focus on leading customers towards best practices.
  • Be a voice of the customer to internal BioCatch functions to drive our own product strategy and delivery.
  • Support BioCatch Data Science in researching new and emerging threats across our main use cases including Account Takeover, Account Opening, Remote Access Scams, Social Engineering Scams and Mule detection.
  • Deliver reporting and insights on fraud detection performance.
  • Share interesting stories and learnings from the field with our Sales Enablement function and strive to be a thought leader in the fraud space.
  • Provide SME support to the BioCatch Sales functions to enable them in new customer acquisitions.
