Teamwork: We trust, respect, encourage, and show up for each other — through good times and hard. We’re on this mission not just for ourselves, but also for the people we work with — and ultimately, for our customers.

Ownership: We all have a stake in Neo’s success — so we go out of our way to do what needs to get done. We hold ourselves accountable to deliver on our commitments — to our customers, to our partners, and to our team. When we fall short, we find a way to do better in the future.

Professional Integrity: We’re asking millions of Canadians to trust us with their hard-earned money — so we hold ourselves (and each other) to the highest standards of integrity.

The role

Our Financial Crimes team navigates through a fast-paced environment and knows how to switch gears to adapt to any scenario.

  • You build thoughtful and professionally written incident reports and deliver them to senior leadership audiences
  • You collaborate with technical teams to forecast solutions for fraud activity, contributing to proactive and scalable crime prevention
  • You keep your pulse on the market, staying up to date on all the latest trends in Fraud, and leverage this knowledge towards everyday decision making within your team and across the company
  • You coordinate with other professionals across the industry to grow Neo’s presence

Who we’re looking for:

  • You have more than 5 years of experience combatting fraud across a variety of banking products
  • You’re a data master, you leverage your SQL skills to identify patterns
  • You like to role play, putting yourself in the shoes of criminals and thinking as they do so you can better defend against them
  • Your verbal and written communication skills are defined as strengths by your current and former employers
  • You have strong knowledge of general fraud typologies, and mitigating tactics for those typologies
  • You’re curious - you enjoy asking questions to identify the root cause of problems

We’re evolving quickly as an organization, we work together in person, and the pace of progress isn’t for everyone. That’s why we’re looking for change-makers who love a challenge — who would rather blaze a trail through uncertainty than travel a well-paved road.
