Job TitleScrum - Lead Technical Program Manager – CL6-3Who is Mastercard
Mastercard is a global technology company in the payments industry. We work to connect and power an inclusive, digital economy that benefits everyone, everywhere by making transactions safe, simple, smart and accessible.
Our mission is to connect and power an inclusive, digital economy that benefits everyone, everywhere by making transactions safe, simple, smart, and accessible. Using secure data and networks, partnerships and passion, our innovations and solutions help individuals, financial institutions, governments, and businesses realize their greatest potential.
Our decency quotient, or DQ, drives our culture and everything we do inside and outside of our company. With connections across more than 210 countries and territories, we are building a sustainable world that unlocks priceless possibilities for all.
The Applications team was created to establish Mastercard as the frontrunner in the fast-evolving real-time payments space, and to position MasterCard to be able to incubate the development of new payment flows.
The team is responsible for designing, building, and operating the technology that powers Mastercard's next generation payment applications – Domestic, Cross Border and Bill Payments.
Mastercard seeks to define a world beyond cash. To accelerate this mission, we are committed to building & scaling products & applications that transform payments of any type. Real time payment technology is central to this strategy. The current consumer bill pay experience is cumbersome, costly, slow and fragmented. We are on a journey to build and scale a world-class bill pay network. By combining our RTP experience with our existing products (BPX, RPPS, Omni Billing, PBA and PBA RFP), as well as other assets, we can bring a solution to market that improves this outdated ecosystem for all parties involved. To win in the market, we will also leverage our strengths in brand, standards, consistency, trust and security. This position will be at the center of growing our applications technology platform and team for Bill Pay.
