About Remitly

Remitly is an international payments company. It provides online services that enable customers to send and transfer money.

Job Description

At Remitly, we help people around the world send over $6 billion across borders. We want to transform the lives of immigrants and their families by providing the most trusted financial service products on the planet. At Remitly, your work has a direct and positive impact on people in almost every country, every day.

The Team:

The Passbook team is a startup within Remitly, and we think combines the best parts of working in a startup with the best parts of working in a later stage technology company.

Passbook is banking designed for immigrants. It's easy to open an account with documents immigrants already have, built for travel back home and abroad, has no monthly fees, and makes remittances faster and cheaper than ever. Our mission is to create the most loved and trusted banking partner to immigrants globally. And we're just getting started.

About the Role:

As a Senior Data Analyst at Passbook by Remitly, you turn opportunities into growth. Our team's goal is to guarantee a smooth experience for good customers and put friction in front of bad actors. You will help achieve this goal by analyzing customer behavior, identifying patterns of risk, building dashboards, and running experiments that help us balance superb customer experience with acceptable risk exposure. You will work with product managers, engineers, customer behavior investigators, and executive leadership. You will report directly to our Head of Risk and help grow the Risk team.

What You'll Do:

  • Apply statistical and programming skills to convert raw data into insights that help us understand customer behavior, protect our customers, and offer them a better experience
  • Identify unwanted behavior and measure its impact using data
  • Make data accessible and understandable by building dashboards and developing insights
  • Design and run experiments that measure customer impact vs risk exposure, segment customers, and empower data-driven business and product decisions
  • Build our fraud and risk financial models and planning

Who You Are:

  • Biased for action: willing to build the first prototype, and plan ahead based on your findings
  • Empathize with our good customers but also think like a fraudster
  • Have a bachelor's degree in a technical or quantitative field (Computer Science, Engineering, Finance, Statistics, or related field)
  • 5+ years of experience translating analysis into recommendations in a B2C environment
  • 3+ years of experience building reports and models (e.g., SQL, spreadsheet modeling, R, Python)
  • Experience with data visualization and related tools (e.g., Tableau, Periscope)


Our Benefits

  • Unlimited paid time off
  • Health, dental, and vision benefits and 401k plan with company matching
  • Company contributions to your HSA or FSA plan, if you choose one
  • Continuing education and corridor travel benefits
  • Scholars program
