New year, new you. And what better way to start off a new year than with a new job? If you're looking for a little change then you're in luck, because Mastercard is hiring in Vancouver. The corporation just opened a massive new location in the city and if you're looking for a job with the financial services giant, Vancouver is the place to be. Here’s what we know so far.

According to Mastercard, it has officially opened up a new intelligence and cyber centre. 

The news release explains that this opening will increase its Canadian presence by creating 380 new jobs. 

Mastercard says that this new Vancouver space will be one of six global technology centres for the corporation and will “develop cyber solutions for the payments ecosystem globally.”

In order to get this Vancouver location off the ground and running, the centre launched in partnership with the Government of Canada through its $49 million Strategic Innovation Fund, explains Betakit.

There will also be an additional $510 million investment made by the financial services corporation. 

This means that altogether, the project cost $559 million. 

The Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry stated in a press release posted by Mastercard that the government is investing in a new cybersecurity centre in Vancouver in order to "develop the technology solutions Canadians and people all over the world need to protect their personal and financial information when they use their devices."

They also explained that this investment will help our nation become "a world leader in cybersecurity and help us tackle the cost of cybercrime in Canada—an estimated $3 billion a year.”

The new headquarters is located in The Exchange office tower in the Old Stock Exchange building, which was renovated a couple of years ago. 

The massive corporation will be looking to fill numerous roles that include software engineers, data scientists, project managers, analysts, project designers, and information security experts. 

According to the Mastercard website, there are currently 24 positions needing to be filled in Vancouver right now and you can expect more to emerge. 

These positions range in experience level and can be anything from a summer intern to an engineer or project manager.

You can apply directly for a position here. 

Vancouver is swiftly becoming the home to many popular companies. Vancouver is home to Lululemon's headquarters; the retailer even tried to build its new HQ in Vancouver, but it was too tall.

It seems as though our city is constantly hiring and whether you are looking for a sweet summer gig or a career that pays over $100,000 annually, chances are you can find it here.
