Imagine working for one of the pioneers in the payment technology space. The kind of company that’s been setting the bar for the way people pay and get paid for more than 50 years, and continues to innovate on a global scale. Now imagine that company is less than 15,000 employees worldwide, small enough that you’ll actually have an impact and do some amazing things. Sounds pretty awesome. Well, that company exists and it’s Visa.

Yep, Visa.

Imagine, in a single day, the diversity of transactions that Visa manages – from gaming enthusiasts who buy virtual goods to advance a level, to a small business merchant launching their first ecommerce business to a large consumer brand hitting their largest single-day sale. Now multiply transactions and interactions like that by millions on a global scale – that's Visa. It is a multi-billion dollar market that has experienced year over year growth!
