An Insider's view of Riskified

What's something quirky about your company?

At Riskified, I can be proactive in my own development and seek out precise resources. For example, I purchased a few books on subjects that I was researching and participated in paid webinars and different conferences to learn about my domain. My managers support me with those initiatives.

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

There’s a wealth of resources.

They work with our learning and development team to define program content based on priorities of the business.
