Applied AI, Engineering Manager- Fraud

San Francisco, California, United States — Applied AI Engineering

About the team

The Applied team safely brings OpenAI's technology to the world. We released ChatGPT; Plugins; DALL·E; and the APIs for GPT-4, GPT-3, embeddings, and fine-tuning. We also operate inference infrastructure at scale. There's a lot more on the immediate horizon.

Our customers build fast-growing businesses around our APIs, which power product features that were never before possible. ChatGPT is a prime example of what is currently possible. We simultaneously ensure that our powerful tools are used responsibly. Safe deployment is more important to us than unfettered growth.

The Fraud Engineering team works within our Applied Engineering organization identifying and responding to fraudsters on our platform. We are looking for an experienced engineering manager to help set clear direction for the future, architect and build our next-generation anti-fraud, and build a diverse and inclusive culture.

In this role, you will:

  • Directly manage a multi-disciplinary team of engineers responsible for scaling fraud detection and remediation while balancing fraud loss, cost of implementation, and customer experience
  • Work closely with finance, security, product, research, and trust & safety operations to holistically combat fraudulent and abusive actors on our system
  • Utilize GPT-4 and future models to more effectively combat fraud and abuse
  • Establish and maintain a metrics program to ensure objectives are being met
  • Balance long-term R&D projects with near-term execution to protect the consistent delivery of engineering solutions
  • Ensure your team of engineers are performing at their peak, are growing, and advancing in their careers
  • Create a diverse and inclusive culture that makes all feel welcome while enabling radical candor and the challenging of group think

You might thrive in this role if you:

  • Have at least 5 years of experience managing the team in a closely related domain.
  • Have experience in fraud or spam analysis, investigation, and/or operations
  • Are deeply thoughtful about culture, DEI, and team structure with a track record of improving these areas
  • Can dive into our codebase, intuit how it works, and be able to have a strong intuition for suggestions that will lead us to a stronger engineering position.
  • Experience closing competitive candidates for their team and the ability to craft and convey compelling visions of the future
  • Very high emotional intelligence and deeply empathetic personality. A strong ability to read between the lines and genuinely connect with a diverse range of fellow colleagues
  • A voracious and intrinsic desire to learn and fill in missing skills. An equally strong talent for sharing that information clearly and concisely with others
  • Are comfortable with ambiguity and rapidly changing conditions. You view changes as an opportunity to add structure and order when necessary
  • Experience in Machine Learning techniques is a plus, but not required
