Visa will expand its Georgia presence by opening a new hub in Midtown Atlanta, Gov. Brian Kemp announced Wednesday. The project is expected to create about 1,000 jobs in the metro region during the next several years.
“Georgia is a growing hub for the fintech industry thanks in part to our strategic investment in workforce development initiatives,” Kemp said. “I look forward to seeing the countless opportunities this significant expansion creates for hardworking Georgians.”
Visa’s new 123,000-square-foot hub at 1200 Peachtree St. is expected to open next year.
The office will represent a wide range of Visa teams and functions, with a particular concentration of technology and client services teams.
The company is actively hiring for careers in client services, product management, software development, risk and security, finance and more. Individuals interested in opportunities with Visa are encouraged to visit: https://vi.sa/AtlantaCareers.
