Visa Announces Ambitious Crypto Product Roadmap, Advertises Engineering Job Position

Visa, one of the world’s largest digital payment companies, has announced its plans to push the digital asset industry forward.

Cuy Sheffield, the Head of Crypto at Visa, revealed the company’s “ambitious crypto product roadmap” with the goal of promoting the mainstream adoption of public blockchain networks.

Sheffield took to Twitter to invite interested software engineers to contribute their expertise to the company. This is another significant development in Visa’s foray into the digital asset industry.

As a prominent and well-known finance company, Visa has expressed its intention to be part of the cryptocurrency financial revolution. To this end, Sheffield emphasized the need for engineers to assist the company in driving the mainstream adoption of public blockchain networks and stablecoin payments.

In addition, Sheffield provided a link to the official Visa page advertising a potential engineering position. The company has listed a number of preferred qualifications in an ideal candidate for the engineering position, including a strong comprehension of layer 1 and layer 2 solutions, as well as experience with writing smart contracts utilizing Solidity, a programming language created for the Ethereum Network.

This language is used for generating transaction records and creating smart contracts on blockchain platforms. Additionally, the candidate should have a solid understanding of both public and permissioned distributed ledger networks, security protocols, and private key custody.

Experience with new Ethereum advancements such as ERC-4337 is also a necessary qualification for the job. In fact, the Crypto team at Visa is working on creating the next generation of products to facilitate commerce in digital and mobile lives.

The team aims to introduce intuitive features that offer new value for their customers. They are looking for engineers who possess vast experience and enthusiasm for the Web3 stack of technologies.

Earlier this year, it was reported that Visa, along with other companies, had halted its crypto development due to a lack of regulatory clarity in the US crypto industry.

Nevertheless, it seems that regulatory developments have not stopped Visa’s ongoing progress in developing blockchain technology.
