The Merchant Risk Council annual conference has always been one of our favorite events of the year. What better opportunity to meet up with customers, prospects, friends, and other vendors to chat about the issues we all care about?

This year’s event was extra special for us, as a panel of merchants and industry experts selected Sift Science from among 20+ fraud solutions as the winner of the 2017 MRC Technology Industry Award. We’re truly humbled to receive this honor. It’s rewarding to get expert and industry validation of our category-leading solution, known for its sophisticated real-time machine learning that benefits from a global network of fraud and abuse data, plus custom models tailored to industries and individual businesses.

We’re especially grateful to all of our incredible customers, whose ongoing support and feedback keep us moving forward, iterating, and improving.

The award also makes me reflect on how we’ve grown since the 2014 MRC conference, when we won the METAward in the “startup” category. From our Series C announcement last summer and launch of multiple new products across the trust and safety spectrum, to our expansion to a Seattle office and 100+ strong workforce – we’ve come a long way, but we still have a ways to go. And we couldn’t be more excited about what’s ahead!

Speaking of which… if you’re interested in helping us make the internet a better place – we’re hiring. If you need help with a fraud or abuse problem – let us know! And as always, continue to share your feedback and suggestions to help us keep Sift Science as your preferred vendor.
