Job Description

Do you love visualizing data and rapidly prototyping creative applications?

Do you like working with front end technologies like React, Angular and Web Components?

Do you want to design and engineer accessible data experiences and data visualization components?

Put those skills to work answering strategic questions for one of the world's most respected and innovative payments companies. 

Join our fast-paced Data Experience team, within our Design Engineering & Analytics organization, working on our data visualization component library Visa Chart Components (VCC). VCC is an accessibility focused, framework agnostic set of data experience design systems components for the web. VCC attempts to provide a toolset to enable developers to build equal data experiences for everyone, everywhere. You will contribute to all aspects of VCC, from setting strategy and evangelizing, to designing and developing robust, accessible visualization components.

In this role, you will get to work with designers, business analysts, and engineers from Global Design and our partner Product teams who leverage VCC within their products. Incredible volumes of data will be at your fingertips to mold and refine into elegant visualizations utilizing traditional proven graphics (e.g., bar charts) as well as inventing novel graphics concepts, yet to be seen. You will be part of a fun, humble team, always learning, thirsty for feedback, and collaborating with others to deliver cohesive data visualization experiences.
