MasterCard Recruiting Blockchain Specialists


Payment giant MasterCard announced that it is recruiting Blockchain specialists. They will be part of a team of 175 new technology developers to be based in Leopardstown, Ireland.

Mastercard's research and development arm, Mastercard Labs, is headquartered in the Irish city. The new recruits are supposed to work on creating more efficient payment systems.

Sonya Geelon, Mastercard Ireland's country manager, said the company is working on expanding access to financial services.

"We're driving projects that promote financial inclusion at home and abroad, and are working to provide consumers, businesses, and governments with the most innovative, safe and secure ways to pay," she added.

Mastercard has been eying applications of blockchain to its services in the recent past, and in 2016, the company released a series of experimental Blockchain based APIs.
