About us:

Digital commerce is built on trust. At every point along the eCommerce journey, businesses must make a critical decision: Can I trust this customer? Answering this simple question accurately and instantly is powerful—it can accelerate revenue growth and strengthen a company’s connection with its customers. How do we do it? Forter was founded on the insight that it's not about what is being purchased, nor where— but who is behind the interaction.

We isolate fraudsters and protect customers—ensuring everyone gets the experience they deserve.  Given that trust is central to how we operate, Forter is very much driven by a defined set of values. We attract remarkable talent and have retention and engagement levels that are well above benchmarks. We’re meticulous about strengthening our culture as we grow and ensuring this is an environment where people can have outsized impact.

The Data Infra team’s mission is to boost engineering operations and velocity by providing the technical expertise in this domain, and by building systems and tools which enhance teams’ abilities to use, maintain, and optimize data stores, orchestrate data workloads, and other data infrastructure common to multiple teams.

This team is critical to Forter’s mission - It directly drives Forter’s ability to scale its business, and lays critical groundwork to promote engineering velocity and teams’ autonomy.

What you'll be doing:

  • Initiate and lead complex development projects, working with product managers and other Engineering stakeholders to define features and scope, and to guide decisions and tradeoffs

  • Collaborate with and build a great customer experience for engineers using your infrastructure

What it's like to work at Forter:

At Forter, developers who have founders’ mentality thrive. With many technical challenges alongside complex systems, developers get to lead and impact as much as they can and want. From leading cross-team, highly coordinated projects, to deeply technical and highly challenging, long-term projects.

We don’t have QA, we don’t have Architects (“CTO team”), we don’t have a NOC or SOC team. We look at our team as part of the system that we build, so we optimize the process and tools to fit our team. Most of our team has a generalist-mindset, but our system is vast and we have people developing expertise in areas they are passionate about. 

We are big believers in having Skin in the game as a way of setting the alignment of incentives to build things right, and picking boring technology as we respect the complexity of our system and business.

You should join to help us build a better version of Forter, rather than a smaller version of a large company.  If you’re up for the challenge, please submit your CV.

We are a team of over 500 Forterians spread across 3 different continents. Our success so far in the marketplace has allowed us to achieve a total series F valuation of over $3 Billion, making us the most valuable privately-held fraud prevention company globally. Our investors include Tiger Global, Bessemer, Sequoia Capital, March Capital, and Salesforce Ventures. 

At Forter, we believe unique people create unique ideas, and valuable experience comes in many forms.
