  • Summary

    DISH is a Fortune 200 company with more than $15 billion in annual revenue that continues to redefine the communications industry. Our legacy is innovation and a willingness to challenge the status quo, including reinventing ourselves. We disrupted the pay-TV industry in the mid-90s with the launch of the DISH satellite TV service, taking on some of the largest U.S. corporations in the process, and grew to be the fourth-largest pay-TV provider. We are doing it again with the first live, internet-delivered TV service – Sling TV – that bucks traditional pay-TV norms and gives consumers a truly new way to access and watch television.


    Now we have our sights set on upending the wireless industry and unseating the entrenched incumbent carriers.


    We are driven by curiosity, pride, adventure, and a desire to win – it’s in our DNA. We’re looking for people with boundless energy, intelligence, and an overwhelming need to achieve to join our team as we embark on the next chapter of our story.


    Opportunity is here. We are DISH.

    Work hands-on with DISH systems and enterprise data to identify and prevent fraud. As a member of DISH’s Information Security group (InfoSec), work closely with DISH’s Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) and other business units within DISH to gather fraud-relevant data and maintain the data for analysis. Prepare data quality analysis (DQA) artifacts, including data profiles and recommendations used in the analysis and interpretation of data as appropriate.

    • Work closely with EDW personnel to gain working knowledge of enterprise systems and leverage enterprise data to help identify fraud patterns and contribute towards ideas for prevention.
    • Consume data from multiple sources and create an analysis process to identify when fraud patterns are observed.  Data sources include Teradata, RedShift, SQL and Hadoop. Most data collection will be driven by ETL and SSIS development.
    • Maintain fraud-relevant database(s) in SQL and/or RedShift and create new data structures as necessary. As data points are identified that are be determined to be indicative of fraud, create new tables and data collection processes.
    • Custom development of scripts, ETL jobs, and SSIS packages.
