Fraud, optimisation, analytics


Would you like to fight fraud using your analytical and creative problem solving skills? We are now looking for a senior Fraud Expert to help accelerate the development of our internal and first party fraud capabilities.


At Nordea, we see that the world is changing fast – and we want to be one step ahead of the curve. That’s why we’re deeply committed to providing the financial solutions of tomorrow to our customers. We’re creating an agile environment where we experiment and grow together – and we need your ideas and unique background. With us, you’ll be in good company with a chance to make your mark on something bigger.


About this opportunity


Welcome to Fraud Management. We keep our customers safe by detecting and stopping fraudulent transactions, identifying fraudsters taking control over customers’ accounts and thus reduce both our customers and Nordea's financial losses. We contribute to a safer society by preventing fraudsters from getting money to fund criminal activities.


In our team we play a valuable role in directly stopping fraud and help genuine customers experience less friction in using Nordea's services and products.

  • Helping prioritise implementation roadmap based on fraud risk and complexity of implementation
  • Collaborating closely with our complex investigation team to optimise configuration of our fraud detection rules
  • Using our R-based analytical platform to analyse data and test hypotheses


You’ll join a multi-disciplinary team located in Stockholm and Helsinki in an organisation present in all Nordic capitals. The team is responsible for optimising Nordea's fraud detection and has a central role in Nordea's Fraud Management unit. We work closely with the fraud investigators investigating the alerts generated by our systems, with business units owning the products and services and  IT who help develop and maintain our platforms.

  • Are a curious and quick learner with a proactive mindset
  • Are interested in and have a passion for fighting fraud
  • Can transform business problems into rule optimisation actions

Your experience and background:  

  • > 2 years experience working with fraud detection solutions from vendors such as BAE, Fico, Featurespace, SAS, ACI, IBM or similar focused on detecting first party and internal fraud
  • > 5 years experience from large financial institutions
  • Quantitative academically background, such as M.Sc or similar
