Job Description
Director, Sales - Product and Technology Delivery

Visa Consulting and Analytics (VCA) is the externally-facing strategy consulting group of Visa.  We draw on our expertise in strategy consulting, data analytics, and pragmatic industry experience to develop fact-based recommendations to improve client performance.  Our clients span the continuum of companies that participate in the payment card industry, to include financial institutions, merchants, fintechs, acquirers, and payment processors.  VCA Managed Services is a suite of service offerings that together help drive the future growth of the organization, enabling our clients to implement the recommendations derived through strategic advisory engagements.

 

As the Director, Sales – Product and Technology Delivery, you will lead one of the core pillars of the VCA Managed Services offerings set.  With respect to Product, Visa today offers clients various standardized API- and SDK-based solutions.  You will enable clients to accelerate their deployment of these solutions by providing the technology, program management, and other resources needed to make the vision a reality.  With respect to Technology, Visa clients have need to build bespoke solutions to achieve their business objectives (e.g., building a new mobile app).  You will enable clients to build such custom solutions by analyzing their requirements, understanding their existing resource capacity, and providing the resources, in whole or in part, to deliver the capability.  In short, you will make possible the critical “last mile” of their change management journey.     

 

The successful candidate will be either a seasoned sales engineer with a fintech company/software firm or a technology consultant with a systems integrator.  The role will partner with internal and external stakeholders throughout the pre-sales process to clarify client requirements.  This person will analyze the resource requirements needed to turn vision into reality, will understand client resource capacity, and will recommend to the client the appropriate resourcing needed to deliver against the vision.  The role will build and leverage a network of internal and external partners to provide resourcing.  This person will articulate the value proposition to clients, customize the offerings as needed to address client feedback, and ultimately close the sale.  The team member will be able to flex across various client stakeholders, to include those in digital, data sciences, marketing, CRM, payments, and fraud/risk.     

 

You will have a strong understanding of the technology implementation/systems integration competitive environment, leveraging that knowledge to position Visa more effectively and to identify/build partnerships for Visa.  You are “a natural” in front of a range of client types and can use that skill set to tailor new and existing services to meet their needs.  You are excited by the prospect of measuring your success through attainment of sales targets.
