Title and Summary

Senior Specialist, Product Management


Mastercard is a global technology company in the payments industry. Our mission is to connect and power an inclusive, digital economy that benefits everyone, everywhere, by making transactions safe, simple, smart, and accessible. Using secure data and networks, partnerships, and passion, our innovations and solutions help individuals, financial institutions, governments, and businesses realize their greatest potential. With connections across more than 210 countries and territories, we are building a sustainable world that unlocks priceless possibilities for all.

Mastercard’s Cyber and Intelligence solutions help to create a more secure and inclusive digital future with a range of identity, cybersecurity, and AI technologies. Identity solutions help consumers prove who they say they are, easily verifying their identity digitally across multiple touch points and improving the customer experience while also helping to detect fraudulent behavior. Cyber and Security Innovation mitigates risk within and across their business relationships, allowing organizations greater visibility into cyber threats and operational risks to reduce financial losses while saving time and resources. The AI, network, and other services make safety and security smarter and easier, helping financial institutions, merchants, governments, and other partners enhance security and convenience for everyone.


This role will support the continuous development of a digital environment in which merchants and issuers exchange enhanced data through Mastercard’s Identity Check ecosystem, identify the level of risk, and ensure the people behind the transaction are who they say they are. Identity Check is a Mastercard Authentication program leveraging EMV 3DS protocol, enabling greater security and a consistent, user-friendly digital payment experience. It reduces fraud, false declines, and unnecessary friction, meeting the need for simple and secure payments.

Proactively search for knowledge, data, and information by interacting with clients and other Mastercard areas (primary and secondary research).
