Visa Is Hiring New Tech Product Manager As Company Is Looking For Crypto And Blockchain Talent

Visa Is Hiring New Tech Product Manager: Company Is Looking For Crypto And Blockchain Talent

One of the largest payment service companies in the world, Visa, has recently opened a new job position. This would be pretty usual and not even newsworthy in normal cases, however, the company is seeking someone with crypto and blockchain abilities.

Via a job posting in SmartRecruiters, a San Francisco-based software recruiting company, Visa is currently looking for someone who will work in their Palo Alto office as the new Technical Product Manager.

This person will be in charge of creating and executing the product strategy of a new crypto-based ecosystem and will have to develop a road map for the company.

The job description entails that the person needs to have a functional knowledge of how the blockchain industry works and who are the major players involved in it. Knowledge about how distributed ledger systems and retail payment solutions work is also a must for this job.

According to the job description, an important detail would be to understand advanced cryptography as well. However, this is not the focus of the job, so people who are not so knowledgeable about advanced cryptography can also try.

The person who is chosen for the job will be working together with the Visa Research team and it will be in charge of developing new products for the company’s fintech initiative.

Al Kelly, the CEO of Visa, has affirmed last year that cryptos do not pose a challenge to the payment process in the short to medium term. Kelly believes that cryptos would first need to stop being commodities and turn into real payment systems before they can be a threat.

However, it is obvious that Visa will not simply stand and wait. Because of this, the company is currently researching the crypto and blockchain technology in order to find new solutions which will help the company to grow and to remain at the top of the market.

For instance, last year Visa acquired Earthport, a company that is a partner of Ripple, which runs XRP, the third largest token via market cap.

This shows that even for companies like Visa, the blockchain continues to be the future and they will have to use the technology in order not to be left behind.
