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.

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, but also with business units owning the products and services, as well as IT who help develop and maintain our platforms.
