Payment giant Visa is offering an 18-month full-time crypto development program for undergraduates in the United States. This Program will fully focus on building a “fully fluent cryptocurrency team now and for the future”.
In its hiring post, Visa said that the Crypto Development Program would provide undergraduates with “three distinct business rotations”. This program will mainly focus on the “practical experience of different areas within the emerging cryptocurrency ecosystem at Visa“. Moreover, the company titled the rotations as ‘Crypto Product’, ‘Crypto Solutions’, and ‘Digital Partnerships’.
Moreover, Visa’s hiring post also noted that the company should provide those hired with “training & development, mentoring, networking and leadership exposure”. Also, they want them to build expertise in specific areas. They want to build expertise in areas like decentralized finance (DeFi), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), stable coins and central bank digital currencies (CBDCs).
As a world leader in digital payments, Visa’s payment transactions are over 215 billion across over 200 countries and territories each year.
Moreover, besides the fiat transactions, Visa has also been actively engaging in the crypto sphere. In December 2021, Visa announced plans to launch a new consulting service. They focused this service on the cryptocurrency field to help customers understand cryptocurrencies better.
The news reported that Visa had introduced a global crypto advisory practice as part of the consulting & analytics department. This is part of the company’s effort to expand the cryptocurrency knowledge base of its clients and partners.
Furthermore, the encryption consulting business will provide financial institutions, retailers, and other companies with advice from launching encryption functions to exploring irreplaceable tokens.
