COVID-19 Considerations

We value the safety of each member of our community because we know we’re all in this together.
In many locations, which may change over time, we’ve implemented a virtual hiring process and continue to interview candidates by video or phone.
In addition, in some locations, only individuals who have been fully vaccinated will be permitted inside Mastercard offices until further notice.
In the US, Mastercard is a government contractor, which may legally require most Mastercard employees to be vaccinated unless a verified approved medical or religious exemption is granted. 
Further, we are currently making every effort towards having employees return to work in the office 2 days per week, if that makes sense for their team. 
Everyone must be vaccinated to enter Mastercard offices at this time.  Therefore, we expect all candidates to be vaccinated or to be approved for a medical or religious accommodation prior to commencing work at Mastercard.
