Program Manager, Card Issuing

This is Adyen

We took an unobvious approach to starting a payments company, building a platform from scratch. Today, we're the payments platform of choice for the world's brightest companies. Speed is the foundation of our company. We think fast. We work fast. We launch fast. We are honest, direct, and try to have some fun too. We’re creating our own path, with a global team driving sustainable growth. To maintain our momentum, we need people to join us in finding new ways of solving our unique challenges - people like you.

Program Manager, Card Issuing

We are looking for an experienced Program Manager to join our Issuing project team in San Francisco. In this role, you will help onboard new Issuing programs to the Adyen platform. As one of the first members of the Issuing team, you will also play a key role in shaping Adyen’s Issuing solution: you will be working with our partners and internal teams to define, implement, and operationalize Issuing programs and our program management approach in the US and beyond.

The ideal candidate is someone who can approach and understand complex problems in a structured manner, while converting the results into a compelling and actionable story for internal and external stakeholders. You are an independent and enthusiastic thinker who is curious about how the financial services  ecosystem works, evolves and how that fits with the ever changing global payments landscape.

What you’ll do

  • Work with our partners and internal teams to define the structure and parameters of our issuing programs; help onboard clients to these programs;
  • Help prioritize and oversee implementation of new features and programs with our partners to address new card issuing opportunities;
  • Collaborate closely with Adyen’s Product, Engineering, Legal, Compliance, and Commercial teams to launch and manage issuing programs.
  • This role is based out of our San Francisco office
  • This is a full-time position with the ability to work a minimum of 40 hours/week
  • You have full professional proficiency (written and verbal) in English

Who you are

  • You possess 3+ years in a program management, issuing, and project management capacity with either a card scheme, payment service provider, card processor, or another player in the issuing ecosystem;
  • You comprehend the business opportunities and operational complexities that exist in setting up a new issuing program;
  • You have experience working with a tech company’s payments team to launch card programs (consumer and commercial) that involved working directly with processing platforms, banking partners, card manufacturers and other related service providers;
  • You have strong working knowledge of the payments industry, issuing products, and associated regulations;
  • You have excellent analytical skills, love technology and have experience interfacing with technical teams;
  • You are a self-starter who likes taking ownership and can manage projects effectively;
  • You can communicate seamlessly with a global, multicultural team (strong team player, culturally aware, both internally and externally with customers.)
