  • Anti-Fraud Solutions
  • Full-time
adjoe is a leading mobile ad platform developing cutting-edge advertising and monetization solutions that take its app partners’ business to the next level. Part of the applike group ecosystem, adjoe is home to an advanced tech stack, powerful financial backing from Bertelsmann, and a highly motivated workforce to be reckoned with. 

Meet Your Team: Anti-Fraud Solutions

Industry experts report that 20 percent of global mobile ad spend can be identified as fraud. adjoe’s Anti-Fraud team has both validated this number and prevented fraudulent users from entering partners’ ad spend.

The team’s software includes two major components.
1) A distributed backend system with modern cloud infrastructure that provides different interfaces to partners.
2) A unique mobile SDK that analyzes device features to detect modifications via xposed or magisk.

With no one-size-fits-all solution, the Anti-Fraud team works with a large set of features. From detecting attempts based on data with static patterns, using proprietary solutions to detect software manipulation, marking network traffic abnormalities, and identifying when to warn or even block requests.

Join a team that is excited about the latest technologies and is highly interested in data, security, cloud computing, and mobile operating systems. Not to mention a team that celebrates many awards for leading the way in fraud prevention.

  • Be responsible for collecting the billions of daily API events and aggregating them in our Kafka and Kinesis streams with the goal of querying them from the data lake in a matter of seconds.
  • Be part of an international English-speaking team dedicated to scaling our adtech platform beyond our hundreds of millions of monthly active users.
