  • The candidate will be required to have a deep understanding of Visa capabilities across the four defined platforms – VisaNet, Visa Developer, Visa Token Service and Visa Identity and Authentication

  • Whilst this is a product proposition role, there is a requirement to sell and influence internal and external stakeholders around the requirement needs; a true consultative selling approach is vital here

  • Off this deep knowledge and understanding of the customer needs and priorities; build out customer journeys and map to Visa capabilities which would enable these journeys

  • Work closely with the Visa Content Specialist resource to help facilitate these journeys and equally the Visa Solution Architect to gain far deeper understanding of each individual bank infrastructure, this is critical to facilitate a more meaningful discussion around deployment of the Visa capabilities

  • Once these propositions and journeys are defined and developed; build out work streams with the support of the project managers to facilitate internal and external focus on the deliverables and outcomes needed. These GTM plans would track and manage deliverables and ensure challenges are quickly escalated on both sides – Visa and the bank

  • Partner with the dedicated client engagement team to help support the commercial wrapper and the way in which Visa can support product Value In Kind or new ways of packaging product pricing to enable deployment of new capabilities for the bank


What we’re after…

  • The individuals should be self-starters, with the ability to think and act fairly independently at times, whilst always aligning and balancing the customer priorities to the Visa product strategy. This is at times a difficult balance to maintain
