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 2018, Zettle joined forces with PayPal to go further in its mission to help small businesses succeed in a world of giants. By offering them the tools to get paid, sell smarter and grow, we empower Sellers to reach their full potential. Because we believe that together we’re made for more, we also think that the best is yet to come as our journey in putting an end to ordinary is just starting. Are you in?

  • Programming in a JVM language such as Java or Kotlin.

  • SQL and data modelling.

  • Familiar with Microservices frameworks.

  • Managing AWS Infra/DevOps at scale using Terraform.

  • WebSockets.

  • TypeScript / ReactJS.

  • Oauth.

Lastly, If you have some knowledge of the FinTech/Payments industry, we’d love to know. If not, we’ll be happy to help you get there!
