Job Description

At PayPal (NASDAQ: PYPL), we believe that every person has the right to participate fully in the global economy. Our mission is to democratize financial services to ensure that everyone, regardless of background or economic standing, has access to affordable, convenient, and secure products and services to take control of their financial lives. We’re a purpose-driven company, and our beliefs are the foundation of how we conduct business every day. We’re guided by our core values of Inclusion, Innovation, Collaboration, and Wellness. Collectively, these values inspire us to work together as One Team with our customers at the center of everything we do, and to take care of ourselves, each other, and the communities in which we live and work. We challenge the status quo, ask questions, and find solutions. Join us as we enable the hopes, dreams, and ambitions of millions of people around the world.

In 2021, Zettle became Zettle by PayPal to go further in its mission to redefine financial freedom and help small businesses succeed in a world of giants. By offering them the tools to get paid, sell smarter and grow, we are empowering sellers across the globe to reach their full potential. At Zettle, we think that together we’re made for more and that the best is yet to come. Our journey in putting an end to ordinary is just starting — Are you game?

As our quest to democratise financial services continues at blazing speed, our POS Alliance is on the lookout for an inspiring Android Lead Developer with a great deal of expertise and a truly Agile mindset to join a crowd of bright people driven by a shared ambition to create hassle-free solutions for small businesses.

In this role, you will have the opportunity to make a tremendous impact on Zettle Go, the App that empowers sellers to start, run and grow their business. From accepting any type of payment to tracking sales, Zettle Go turns their phone or tablet into a complete mobile POS system and register. Easy, Isn't it?

A glimpse of what you will do here

As one of the senior individual contributors to Zettle Go you will work as a technical leader addressing multiple cross functional teams that together build and improve on the Zettle Go experience.

You will provide support and guidance for current and future initiatives, including hand-on support for key projects, while also collaborating with mobile engineers across the organisation to promote sound engineering practices for sustainable product development.

Through this collaboration you will regularly assess the technical state in teams for the platform you’re responsible for and help engineers plan and execute on technical roadmaps. You will share collected input for technical strategy with the alliance tech leads and support them in driving work on that strategy across your domain in the alliance.

In this spirit, your day-to-day responsibilities as Android Lead Developer will essentially consist in:

  • Embedding in teams for a short period to accelerate delivery of key projects.

  • Pairing with Android engineers regularly to help them and get a better understanding of technical challenges.

  • Acting as a bridge in the Android domain between POS and the other alliances to establish good relationship and collaboration with internal stakeholders related to Mobile development.

  • Identifying opportunities and suggest solutions that can be consistently applied throughout the teams in the alliance to holistically improve the mobile user experience.

  • Suggesting and helping introduce new mobile engineering practices / tools to reduce bottlenecks, improve developer speed and long-term solutions sustainability. This work will be done in cooperation with our Apps Platform team that you will have a close working relationship with.

  • Communicating chapter decisions and guidelines in both directions.

  • Partaking in Tech Leads meetings to better understand and influence the technical focus and needs of the alliance.

  • Mentoring other engineers to support them in their career growth.

  • Sharing learnings with broader audience (cross-alliance) and encourage others to do so.

The skills you need to succeed

  • Significant software development, Android development experience.

  • Experience in leading technical initiatives spanning multiple teams.

Where does the magic happen?
