Job Title

Manager, Product Development & Innovation, Bill Pay


As Mastercard seeks to define a world beyond cash, we are pursuing payment opportunities leveraging non-card technologies. Mastercard's acquisition of Vocalink adds Real-Time Payments (RTP) to our solution set, allowing us to capture new segments of cash, check and ACH payments for the network. The current consumer bill pay experience is cumbersome, costly, slow and fragmented. By combining our RTP experience within Vocalink with our existing biller network, RPPS, we can bring a solution to market that improves this outdated ecosystem for all parties involved. To win in the market, we will also leverage our strengths in brand, standards, consistency, trust and security.

To accomplish this, we must build a world-class bill pay product. We will engage key external partners in our new biller network, including the largest US banks and bill service providers. This product leader will work closely with the Global Product platform owners, Operations & Technology and other key partners to ensure the product is built to our customer and business requirements. We will also align with our counterparts in the regions (Sales and Account teams) to ensure the voice of the customer is being heard.
