Job Description
The Visa Corporate IT group has embarked
on a major transformation journey. We will not follow the 'traditional' IT
playbook of simply purchasing off the shelf solutions and stitching them
together. We are transforming ourselves into a true engineering organization
where we put customer experience first, create highly leveraged (and loved)
platforms with a heavy emphasis on operational excellence such as ensuring our
platforms and services are unbreakable. Where we choose to continue with
packaged software we will invent our way around their limitations such as poor
UI or scale.
The Customer Experience (CX) team within Corporate IT
believes that great design and efficient processes have the ability to engage
and inspire users and we strive to rethink and redefine how users interact with
our corporate applications and products.
We are a team of creative and collaborative strategic thinkers, and
conceptual problem solvers who make every decision an informed one. We value precision coupled with a "get it done" mindset, and look for proven skills over big egos. If you are obsessed with the customer experience, and attacking complex processes, this is the team for you!
