Job Description

Reverb is looking for a tenacious and detail-oriented Fraud/Payouts Specialist to support our Risk team’s mission of keeping Reverb’s marketplace the safest and most secure destination to buy, sell, and discover gear from across the globe! 
As a member of the team, you’ll need to be a proactive investigator who has the health and safety of our users as your top priority. You never take things at face value, but rather you relish in the opportunity to dig deeper and analyze the information that’s put in front of you. As a person fueled by curiosity, you take the time to consider multiple perspectives and outcomes in order to mitigate fraud on the platform. You’ll play an integral role in strengthening and protecting our community of musicians and music-lovers by upholding the Reverb values and keeping the bad players at bay!

  • Actively manage the purchase approval queue while mitigating loss exposure.

  • Comfort using spreadsheet software (e.g. Google Sheets, Excel, Microsoft Office), including the use of formulas.
  • Customer-centric approach with a high level of integrity, discretion, precision and enthusiasm.
  • Highly detail-oriented and organized with strong analytical skills.

  • Knowledge of third-party fraud prevention tools (e.g. Sift) is a plus.

  • Availability to work one weekend day (can be remote).
