MasterCard is advertising for software engineers graduating in 2014 to work in a new mobile e-commerce technology lab in New York City.
MasterCard has announced plans for a multi-million dollar renovation of its headquarters building in Purchase, Westchester County alongside the creation of the new technology-focused office in New York City. The moves will lead to the creation of approximately 400 new jobs over the next five years, of which 122 will be placed in the NY lab.
MasterCard is making a $39 million capital investment in the expansion of its headquarter building, with construction set to begin in 2014. The card scheme says it will also spend 'several million dollars' on the New York lab facility.
MasterCard has already placed ads for the New York lab intake, where it is looking for "creative and adaptable, self-motivated software engineer(s) that will research market trends through available big data and develop technology products aligned with MasterCard's digital strategy".
Posted on LinkedIn, the ad says the two-year recruitment programme is focused on "developing a high-potential and high-performing talent pool of future global leaders in the digital space for MasterCard".
