Specifically, Visa are seeking a Technical Product Manager with the specific remit of executing Visa's product strategy within the cryptocurrency ecosystem. The strategy involves a roadmap, stakeholders, and the new TPM will work in close collaboration with the Visa Research team to develop new cryptocurrency products:
"As a product manager on the Visa Crypto team, this person will have responsibility for executing Visa’s product strategy within the cryptocurrency ecosystem. This highly motivated individual will be responsible for managing a product roadmap and collaborating with key stakeholders across the strategy, risk, research, and engineering organizations. This individual will work in close collaboration with the Visa Research team to develop new products to deliver value to fintechs and Visa. This person should have great problem solving skills and creativity to find new opportunities and anticipate how cryptocurrencies could impact payments."
The role will be based in Palo Alto and will report to Visa's Head of Crypto.
Although the price of crypto remains low, the ecosystem is growing and this is a further positive sign that the bull-run of 2017 has led to an exponential infrastructure boom in 2018-2019. Blockchain jobs have increased since then and products are now delivering returns on their roadmap: one example being the recent launch of Wanchain's staking pilot.
