What we’re building and why we’re building it. 

Fetch is a build-first technology company creating a rewards program to power the world. Over the last 5 years we’ve grown from 0 to 7M active users and taken over the rewards game in the US with our free app. The foundation has been laid. In the next 5 years we will become a global platform that completely transforms how people connect with brands. 

It all comes down to two core beliefs. First, that people deserve to be rewarded when they create value. If a third party directly benefits from an action you take or data you provide, you should be rewarded for it. And not just the “you get to use our product!” cop-out. We’re talkin’ real, explicit value. Fetch points, perhaps. 

Second, we also believe brands need a better and more direct connection with what matters most to them: their customers. -- Brands need to understand what people are doing, and have a direct line to be able to do something about it. Not just advertise, but ACT. Sounds nice right? 

That’s why we’re building the world’s rewards platform. A closed-loop, standardized rewards layer across all consumer behavior that will lead to happier shoppers and stronger brands.

Fetch Rewards is an equal employment opportunity employer.

Why a Director of Fraud Prevention is important:
It is our priority to provide the best experience to our millions of shoppers each month, and a major part of that is providing them with the easiest way to get rewarded for their shopping. Helping shoppers keep their accounts secure and protecting the platform from bad actors is a carefully calculated challenge, and we’re looking for a proven veteran in the fraud prevention space to build targeted policies and systems and grow our team of talented fraud analysts. The fraud team and each analyst play an important role in ensuring good users have a positive experience unencumbered by unnecessary hurdles, that we correct any minor infractions, and maintain the highest volume of shoppers using Fetch while protecting against egregious theft.
