The payment company Mastercard published on its website three vacancies for managers to develop projects in the field of blockchain and cryptocurrencies, including payments and wallets.
In one of the vacancies, the company indicated that it was looking for a “blockchain solutions engineer”, in another it required a “vice president of blockchain product management”, the third said about “product management: cryptocurrencies / wallets”. The new employees will work in an already formed multifunctional team focused on experimental research, regulation and legal compliance of digital assets, franchises, regions and technologies, with the aim of continuing to develop new products and services.
In addition, candidates for two positions must have experience in the management of cryptocurrency storage products. However, the company does not specify what exactly they will do. They may have to develop a custody solution as part of the collaboration between Mastercard and Facebook.
Also, it needs to be taken in to account that Mastercard is one of the participants of the Libra cryptocurrency project announced by Facebook, which was invited to start developing its own applications for the Libra blockchain, including alternative cryptocurrency wallets.
