About The Team

The Financial Platform Partnerships team is part of Mastercard's Open Banking division, Finicity. Our team is a highly strategic business development group focused on establishing channel partnerships with companies who can scale the distribution of our open banking API's in a one-to-many model.

About You

We need a highly energetic business development executive who is willing to jump into an ever-evolving team and hit the ground running.

About the Role

Your primary responsibility will be to drive partnerships deals from qualification to closure and for certain highly strategic partners, provide on-going relationship management. Most of our leads come from warm introductions from across Mastercard's broad set of industry relationships, which means you will partner closely with teammates (Account Managers, Product Architects, Marketing, etc.) across Mastercard to correctly position Finicity. You will own all aspects of the deal process with a strong support network around you to ensure the highest likelihood for success (i.e. Sales Engineers for integration scoping, Finance and Legal for pricing and contracting, etc.).
