As an undergraduate, Nili pursued a degree in English and was intent to pursue a musical acting career. She became interested in business, however, and returned to school to receive her MBA. Nili eventually applied to Mastercard after falling in love with the company’s mission of using technology to improve the world.
Nili’s job is cross-functional and highly collaborative, so no two days are ever alike. The morning might find her discussing strategy or analytics with executives, the afternoon is likely busy brainstorming new program capabilities with architects and developers, and by the end of the day, Nili is deep in conversation with key customers to discuss how Mastercard's digital products can meet their needs.
"What resonates most with me and what gets me going every day is the ability to drive tangible value to solve someone's problem and make their life better."
"Our executives aren't sitting behind a glass door—they are sitting right next to us. To me, this has been one of the most powerful aspects of Mastercard and how the company is using architecture to create a very unique culture where the boundaries and hierarchies are broken down."
