Eventbrite is the trusted marketplace for live experiences and our users expect to be able to post an event in minutes, buy a ticket in seconds, and start reaching their audience right now. Integrity teams ensure that each and every step goes smoothly: creators know they will be paid on time and consumers trust the experience will be high quality. And we’re always getting better, launching innovative features that delight customers but also introduce new risks to our business.
The Risk Data Science team develops machine learning and rules-based detection of risks across the platform. We work closely with an engineering team to integrate that detection directly into product flows and with integrity operations specialists to quickly remove bad actors and moderate user generated content. As a cross functional group, we pride ourselves on protecting the business without unnecessary friction for our customers.
