At Adyen, we’re never afraid to start over, no matter how complex the problem. It’s the meaning of our name and ingrained in everything we do. Payments providers used to offer services based on a patchwork of systems built on outdated infrastructure. In 2006, we set out to change this. Today, we provide leading businesses around the world with end-to-end payment capabilities, data enhancements, and financial products in a single solution.

This is Adyen

Adyen is the payments platform of choice for the world’s leading companies, delivering frictionless payments across online, mobile, and in-store channels. Our team members are motivated individuals that help each other do remarkable things every day. We face unique technical challenges at scale and we solve those as a team. And together, we deliver innovative and ethical solutions that transform the way the world pays.

We took an unobvious approach to starting a payments company, building a platform from scratch. Now, Adyen serves the world’s brightest companies like Facebook, Uber, L’Oreal, Casper, Bonobos, and Spotify.

At Adyen, we make payments simple with one platform to accept payments, protecting business revenue, and controlling business finances. Part of our job is to protect businesses from fraud with tailored products driven by machine learning. As an econometrician, you can use your skills to analyze payment data and discover anomalies and trends for fraud prevention. Therefore, the board of Ayden has asked you to help with the following issue: One of our key merchants lost revenue due to a large number of fraudulent payments. We want to help this merchant by detecting, preventing and responding to the fraudulent payments. Therefore, the board asks you to come up with a prediction to determine if a payment is fraudulent or not. In a short presentation you will describe the problem, how you tackled the fraud, and what your recommendations are for the Adyen board.
