Visa seeks blockchain/crypto talent for Tech Product Manager role
Visa has a job opening in the crypto and blockchain space.
It is looking for a Technical Product Manager, to be based at Visa FinTech in its Palo Alto, California office. According to the job description, applicants must be “deeply familiar with permissionless blockchain technology and have a close network of experts in the fast moving cryptocurrency and FinTech ecosystem.”

“As a product manager on the Visa Crypto team, this person will have responsibility for executing Visa’s product strategy within the cryptocurrency ecosystem. This highly motivated individual will be responsible for managing a product roadmap and collaborating with key stakeholders across the strategy, risk, research, and engineering organisations,” it adds.
“This individual will work in close collaboration with the Visa Research team to develop new products to deliver value to FinTechs and Visa. This person should have great problem solving skills and creativity to find new opportunities and anticipate how cryptocurrencies could impact payments.”
The move is in stark contrast with Visa CEO Alfred F. Kelly Jr’s previous comments about the company’s lack of enthusiasm towards blockchain technology. He said that, whilst it was interesting, blockchain wouldn’t be a useful option for Visa, particularly in relation to its B2B products.
