Stripe is Hiring a Credit Risk Analyst


Stripe is hiring a credit risk analysis, which is semi-related to data science. As with other Stripe jobs, they give a location (San Francisco) but say on their hiring page that they are open to remote work. So what's a "credit risk analyst" do?

You'll work closely with our risk, finance and machine learning teams to build credit policies for our diverse user segments, design solutions that can scale with our user base, and think through how to best evaluate and manage credit risk for businesses small, large, conventional and unique.
You’ll:
  • Work with the risk and finance teams to improve Stripe's credit risk policies, define acceptable exposure at the segment and entity level, and manage portfolio risk.
  • Work closely with the machine learning team to create statistical models that estimate the probability of default and extent of exposure across a wide range of businesses. 
  • Design creative ways to manage risk for large or unusual accounts that don't fit into traditional statistical models.
  • Work with the risk team to create processes (both manual and automated) to handle deviations from acceptable risk levels and develop ways to proactively mitigate risk.
  • Build reporting systems to analyze and track the performance of our credit risk models and strategies.
