As a Lead Software Engineer on the New Product Engineering team at Mastercard,

You will lead the development of new, early-stage products in collaboration with cross-functional teams to ensure solutions drive customer value, and scale to meet customer demand. You will lead the technical design from the outset and create high-performance analytic applications based on data sets measured in the billions of transactions and front-end visualizations to unleash the value of big data.
