Visa (V) is inviting undergraduate students to apply for its crypto development program as the company continues to build out its internal crypto talent.

  • Visa’s Crypto Development Program is an 18-month rotational development experience “designed to build a fully fluent cryptocurrency team now and for the future,” according to a hiring post. “The program supports Visa’s mission to build a strong entry-level pipeline of talent with deep subject matter expertise in the crypto space.”
  • Those hired as part of the program will rotate on teams including Crypto Product, Crypto Solutions and Digital Partnerships and will build expertise in specific areas such as decentralized finance (DeFi), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), stablecoins and central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), the post said.
  • Last year, Visa launched a global crypto advisory practice to help financial institutions develop their cryptocurrency businesses as demand for crypto products continues to grow.
  • Visa CEO Al Kelly recently questioned the ultimate utility of the sector at an investment conference, though said the company intends to continue building out its crypto platform.
