About Ondot Systems

Ondot Systems is the global leader in powering mobile payment services, serving over 4,000 financial institutions across four continents. The company's real-time platform, built upon an API based services-oriented architecture, gives financial institutions a competitive edge by increasing mobile engagement and empowering their customers to personalize, manage and control how payments are made in today's world of always-on digital commerce, resulting in higher usage of payment instruments while lowering fraud incidents. Ondot offers a unique market opportunity in a hot industry. Join us on this exciting journey!

The Director of Product Management will assist with the further development of our Mobile Card Services products which provide a simple platform that provides consumers with account management capabilities, including an account "on/off switch," alerts, and the ability to preauthorize transactions based on merchant type or location. It can even limit transactions based on consumers' proximity to the mobile device registered with the payment account. Services for financial institutions and issuers use the same platform as the consumer service but offer fraud alerts, customer support, and reporting. The benefit to issuers and FIs is a reduction in fraud, increased payment card usage, and increased engagement through mobile banking channels.
