Job Description

Company Description
Now, more than ever, it's not only convenience but safety we think about when we choose to shop online rather than going into an actual store. Cardinal, a Visa solution, is a global leader in authenticating digital transactions. We work every day to make the digital shopping experience safe, rewarding, and engaging. For over two decades, we've been bringing merchants, issuers, and shoppers together in an experience where everybody wins. With a singular focus, proven technology, and dedicated service, we continuously raise the bar for payment authentication around the world. We are one of the leading FinTech companies in Northeast OH. We are proud of what we do and how we do it.

When you work with us, you get the best of two worlds. Cardinal is a small company, with a welcoming, family-like atmosphere. But as a Visa solution, we offer the world-class resources and benefits of a global company. As companies with a worldwide customer base, both Cardinal and Visa realize the benefits of having a diverse employee base, both for our products and customer service. We are dedicated to continuous improvement in all that we do. We use Lean and Agile principles and rituals as the framework for achieving that improvement. To achieve these goals we need accomplished and ambitious people - people that recognize the value that comes with the varying perspectives, and the cultural awareness that comes with our diversity.

Cybersecurity is at the beating heart of our culture. Our diligence and expertise is what makes us the undisputed leader in electronic payments. We've made it our priority to create a top-tier Security Architecture team, poised to defend us against any potential cyber threats.
