Have you ever wondered how a suspect item or service listed online has nothing but 5-star reviews? Are you curious how those fake reviews feed into broader abusive activity? Are you interested in applying your analytical and investigative skills to identify bad actors posting fake reviews for profit and bring them to justice? If so, this is the job for you!
We are looking for a talented investigator or analyst to help develop and execute Amazon's efforts to combat bad actors posting fake reviews on our store. You will work with a team of attorneys, investigators, and risk managers to identify these actors around the world, develop and pursue cases against them, and work with regulatory agencies, law enforcement, and outside counsel to disrupt their activities.
Our team is based primarily in Arlington, VA but other locations, including domestic and international, may be considered for this role.
This role will partner closely with Amazon's Customer Trust and Partner Support team and other stakeholders to develop investigative leads based on Amazon internal data and external databases and resources, prepare case files and referrals to regulatory and law enforcement entities, and support outside counsel in civil litigation against bad actors.
This individual should be highly collaborative and organized, love analyzing complex data sets and can effectively communicate your investigative findings to multiple stakeholders both in writing and verbally.
Candidates must be mission-oriented and able to pursue projects to completion with a minimum of input or direction, take initiative in creating and improving work processes, and work effectively on a variety of simultaneously active matters in a fast-paced environment. We are looking for someone with strong judgment who can think big about these efforts while delivering results to deter and prevent this malicious activity.
