  • Visa has been named one of the best places to work for people with disabilities, achieving a 100 percent score on the 2020 Disability Equality Index® (DEI). This is was the first time we participated in the index, the United States' most comprehensive annual benchmarking tool allowing corporations to self-report disability policies and practices. The DEI is a joint initiative of the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) and Disability:IN. Our commitment to inclusion of people with disabilities extends beyond our culture into our business. Check out the article and video below to see how our Global Accessibility and User Experience (UX) Research & Design team is driving financial inclusion by enabling engineers to create accessible products for everyone, everywhere.

Visa Inc. – Why Work With Us?

We’re not what you think. We’re way more than you expect.

As the world’s leading payments network, Visa is driving economic growth and improving lives by transforming the way the world pays. We are the brand that made electronic payments easy to use, secure and literally everywhere you want to be.

Make an Impact

Are you ready to change the world? Good! Because the work we do at Visa impacts the lives of billions of people every day. With the help of our advanced payments network, a mother in Rwanda can pay bills online, a graphic designer in Vancouver can receive payment on her phone and the owner of a tiendita in Mexico can sell to customers from around the world. 

We are a company of 20,000 innovators and trailblazers who know that if you make a difference here, you’ll have an impact everywhere.

Join an Inclusive Culture

Visa was founded on the principle of inclusivity. It’s rooted in our vision of acceptance “for everyone, everywhere.” To achieve our mission of connecting the world it takes more than a powerful network, robust cybersecurity or fantastic products; it takes great people with diverse ways of thinking. We aim to foster a culture that makes this a workplace where you truly belong. The best part…we’re a work in progress. We want you to make us better, help us grow and improve where we all work.

You Invest + We Invest = We All Win

At the center of our strategic business pillars is an investment in talent. This begins with giving our people the runway to learn and grow. Visa University, a physical & virtual campus with 25,000+ resources, is where employees learn and share ideas to make payments more accessible and secure. Visa is the global leader because our employees always look beyond the horizon to seek better solutions. We're committed to providing the tools and support you need to thrive. When you succeed, we grow!

Together, let’s transform the way the world pays.

Whether you aspire to be an engineer, designer, marketer, or anything in between, you’ll make your mark at Visa dreaming up new ideas and gaining exposure to some of the most advanced technology in the industry. Our programs help both current students and new graduates develop a foundation for the rest of their careers. 

Explore our Intern Opportunities

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Visa Inc. (Foster City, CA) in August 2019.


    Easy but touch up on SQL. Excel and Tableau are very important. You need to know Hadoop also. Teams are nice but you need to know your stuff cause they don't have time to train you.
