Reducing fraud and spam for 130M+ users

Discord needed a team of data scientists and risk engineers to help the Safety Data Science team reduce fraud and spam. The vision was simple: use data science to make Discord a safer place by improving the efficacy and usage of our anti-abuse platform and by working on a home-grown tool to reduce spam and fraud. So they brought in two top builders from A.Team’s network. The result? A massive reduction in fraud which saved Discord millions of dollars.
