We believe that our differences enable us to be a better team – one that makes better decisions, drives innovation and delivers better business results.

Title and Summary

Director, Account Management, Digital Partnerships


Imagine rolling up your sleeves with some of the world’s leading technology companies to create innovative, differentiated products and solutions that shape the future of commerce. The Digital Partnerships team is responsible for cultivating and managing Mastercard’s strategic partnerships with key players across the digital payments ecosystem.

We enable the biggest names in tech, e-commerce, and financial services to build best-in-class solutions leveraging Mastercard technology and deliver them at scale – solving real world problems for our partners and their customers.
We’re looking for someone to join our fast-paced, strategic team to manage and grow relationships with select global strategic partners – enabling our customers’ success, increasing adoption of Mastercard products and services, and feeding our internal innovation feedback loop to ensure that Mastercard delivers relevant, impactful and industry-leading capabilities for our partners.


In this high-profile, customer-facing position you will:
• Develop a deep understanding of your partners’ strategic priorities and role in the digital economy, and leverage this understanding to nurture our relationship, as well as to keep the Mastercard organization in tune with their needs and ambitions.
• Build mutually aligned strategies and plans with your partners that maximize value to our customer, and to Mastercard; and execute on those plans by effectively leveraging the Mastercard organization.
• Drive Mastercard’s go-to-market strategy with your partners across all Mastercard products and services.
• Identify new opportunities to expand our partnerships and evaluate and assess the strategic and economic impact of these potential opportunities.
• Co-innovate with partners to build new product propositions through close collaboration with Mastercard product development and innovation teams.
• Lead all aspects of customer proposals (including crafting compelling RFP responses) and deal execution (including business case development, commercial terms structuring, negotiations, and legal contracting) in close collaboration with key business partners (e.g., finance, legal, product, engineering).

All About You

• You run long-game accounts. You’re equal parts patience and persistence and are driven by the principle that long-term investments yield significant wins. It’s not about the quick win in your world. Team-earned home runs drive you.
• Relationship building is your bread and butter and you consistently exhibit sound business judgement with established strategic/conceptual thinking and strategic planning skills.
• You have a passion for understanding how products, tools and solutions work. While you might not be an engineer, you’re endlessly curious as to how solutions function… and why, sometimes, they don’t.
• Given the scope of your work, exceptional project management and organizational skills are essential alongside strong problem solving and analytical skills.
• You have strong executive presence and communication skills
• You’re a data-driven, strategic thinker with financial acumen; and a deep curiosity that inspires you to deep dive on complex topics and unstructured problems to deliver creative solutions.
• Broad knowledge of the payments industry required, including understanding of latest trends in digital payments, crypto/blockchain, gaming/metaverse, and open banking
• Bachelor’s degree required, Advanced degree a plus.
