Job Description

About Extend:

Extend is modernizing the $100 billion-per-year protection plan industry using cutting-edge technology and top-notch customer service.

Our technology-forward omnichannel and API-first solution allows any merchant to offer protection plans, both online and in store, while also providing a merchant's end customers with a vastly improved and modern support experience that eliminates many of the issues customers face today with legacy underwriters. More recently, Extend also launched a shipping protection solution, covering consumers in the case of lost, damaged or stolen packages. This is further expanding the company’s addressable market and value creation for merchants.

We are a venture-backed startup in downtown San Francisco led by founders who have previously had multiple successful exits. Extend simplifies the technology stack for the product and shipping protection industries.

  • Cross-functional Work: Collaborate with internal stakeholders such as Claims, Product, Engineering, and Legal to build, deploy, and scale new anti-fraud infrastructure and policies from end-to-end. Assist with developing and analyzing metrics and KPI’s evaluating the effectiveness of fraud prevention methods, investigations, and loss mitigation efforts.
  • Quality Control: Conduct quality control reviews to ensure escalations are handled in compliance with existing policies and/or laws.

  • 4+ years of direct Fraud/Abuse Operations experience, preferably in an eCommerce environment
  • Bachelors' degree or equivalent experience, preferably in a related field
  • Knowledge of SQL or equivalent database query language
  • Subject Matter Expertise in fraud concepts and prevention best practices
  • Advanced skills in Excel and Microsoft/Google Suite

  • Ability and interest in thinking beyond the fraud ops and risk organization, considering the challenges of other teams, and prioritizing what is best for the business holistically
