Payments giant Mastercard looks set to move into the blockchain and cryptocurrency sphere in earnest after the company posted three job advertisements seeking senior-level specialists.
Per the company’s job postings board, Mastercard is currently seeking a vice president of product management in “blockchain/crypto,” as well as a director of product development and innovation/blockchain solutions architect and a director of product development for cryptocurrency/wallets.
The new hires will be working in Mastercard’s San Francisco offices.
Last month, the company also began searching for a senior blockchain engineer and a blockchain software engineering lead to work in its Irish offices in Dublin. In December last year, Mastercard announced it was hiring 175 new staff members for its Irish offices, including a number of “blockchain specialists.” The company has also confirmed that its Irish unit is “exploring a range of blockchain solutions.”
