Celebrating diversity and inclusion in development

At Cybersource, we know people are at the heart of every transaction. So we put people at the heart of everything we do. We believe in fostering inclusive, equitable teams and embracing diversity as a way to build better solutions and businesses together.

Build better, together

We’re working hard to foster an environment where everyone is able to build better together. And right now we’re focusing on our developer community to address under-representation at Cybersource and within the industry.

Earlier this year we began highlighting stories of black developers, engineers, and architects in the industry, and we’ll be building on this through mentorships, webinars, hackathons, and more.

Meet some of the developers, architects, and engineers from our network as they share why and how they got into technology, and what they see for the future of our industry—and discover the continual evolution of our collective story of inclusion and diversity and a solution built by everyone, for everyone.
