Job Snapshot

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 ZettlebyPayPal to go even further in its mission to help small businesses succeed in a world of giants. By offering the tools to get paid, sell smarter and grow, we are empowering them to reach their full potential. Together, we’re extraordinary. Together, we’re made for more and the best is yet to come. Our journey in putting an end to ordinary and redefine financial freedom is just starting. Are you with us?

As our quest to democratise financial services continues at blazing speed, our Money Alliance is on the lookout for an inspiring Backend Developer to join our Ledger Team in Stockholm.

In this role, you will join a group of passionate People busy with offering easy access to a robust ledger in ways that enable teams to build reliable, trustworthy and innovative financial products to strengthen our Sellers. 

A glimpse of what we do 


Part of MoneyTech Alliance, our Team's core mission consists in building the Financial Platform that closes the gap between our Product teams and the Finance team. This way we enable our product to grow freely and our Finance team to keep the pace. 

In our systems we have a zero fault tolerance while handling millions of events per day. Scalability and monitoring are crucial, testing is as important as production code itself and we write code for the developers that will come, not simply code that works. 

What you would get here


In our MoneyTech Area, we co-own everything we do. We own our success, but we also own our setbacks. As a Backend Developer in Ledger you will get the opportunity to contribute to all facets of the Backend, but also all aspects of the Software Engineering. This includes infra, data, application, deployment, monitoring, architecture, code reviews, pair and mob programming, etc.

The skills to succeed 


We believe in using the best technologies for the task. In this spirit, we continuously review our toolkit, architecture and ways of working, and we are open to new tools and frameworks. Today we work with Java 15, Dropwizard, Wildfly, Docker, Terraform, PostgreSQL, everything being hosted on AWS. 

As mentioned above, as a Team we help each other thrive: that's why we're not expecting you to be an expert in everything and will be here to support. With this in mind, while not being exhaustive we think that the following would help you:

  • Proven experience building distributed systems. 

  • Experience working with continuously delivered systems.

  • Fluent in Java 8+ 

  • SQL and data modelling. 

  • Pair/Mob programming experience. 

  • Results and delivery oriented. 

  • Learning and knowledge sharing spirit. 

The traits to thrive 

You’re reliable. You’re curious and bold. You think about the next developer. You share your knowledge, experience and opinions while respecting that the last word comes from the Team as one. You make it fun and, from time to time, wouldn't mind playing Dominion after lunch.

Earn bonus points with...

  • Knowledge or experience with Amazon Web Services. 

  • Knowledge or experience with Unix/Linux.  


Does this sound interesting?  

If yes, we’d love to take things further! Go on, hit apply & let's talk.


We are all for equality for all  

Tattoo artists. Dog groomers. Cake bakers. Jewelry makers. You name them - at Zettle - we help them. And to do that well, we need our people to be as unique and diverse as they are. We’re proud to be an equal opportunity employer and together we uphold PayPal’s One Team Behaviour, striving to be a place where everyone can benefit from equal access to professional development, bring their whole self to work and most of all, feel like they belong. Are you in?
