This role is based in Sacramento, California at our headquarters in Old Sacramento.
But we can assure you, Sacramento won't be the only place you'll work. We host frequent trips during the year to bring our whole team together for extended periods of face-to-face time to build deeper relationships.
Some examples of trips include our domestic excursions to San Diego, Newport Beach, and Lake Tahoe. Along with international trips to Costa Rica, Belize, and the Dominican Republic.
About This Role
You will be the first line of defense in catching and deterring bad actors from creating accounts and using the Webconnex platform for spam, link building, and fraud. Your role requires a level of attention to detail to identify patterns, signals, and markers for bad accounts.
You will need to be versed in our terms of service for prohibited (and allowed) uses and work alongside our solutions team to identify threats and banned uses. As you successfully thwart and frustrate the bad guys, you will relay to our technical team knowledge on how to build better technology to detect and monitor the system.
This role also helps manage Purchase Protection Support.
Purchase Protection is a service offered to attendees for events who can upgrade their ticket or registration with Purchase Protection and receive a full refund of their event fees should they be prohibited from attending the event.
In this role, you will review Purchase Protection claims submitted by attendees and work to obtain documentation in order to issue refund payouts.
Sometimes you might work with event organizers to remedy grey areas of edge cases. You will be the intermediary between attendees, event organizers, and our senior team here.
Greatest Benefit To The Team:
Webconnex is growing fast and with that, we become a bigger target for scammers and fraudsters. Using monitoring and alert tools we’ve built to quickly ban, delete, or suspend suspicious accounts, you will bring nearly real-time monitoring to new accounts on the platform.
Deterrence is a large part of fraud prevention and your quick action will help our team eliminate fraud on the platform while frustrating would-be scammers to try elsewhere. As an added benefit to the company, you will be able to identify VIP customers on the platform and connect them with our solutions team so we can provide exceptional service and support to larger customers.
In leading Purchase Protection support, you will provide exceptional service and responses to attendees seeking refunds for valid claims and ensure they are paid in a timely manner. You will help de escalate challenging circumstances between attendee and event organization and help arrive at a resolution.
