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.

PayPal is a leading technology platform and digital payments company that enables digital and mobile payments on behalf of merchants and consumers worldwide. We operate a global, two-sided network at scale that connects merchants and consumers with 392 million active accounts (consisting of 361 million consumer active accounts and 31 million merchant active accounts) across more than 200 markets. PayPal is committed to democratizing financial services to improve the financial health of individuals and families and to increase economic opportunity for entrepreneurs and businesses of all sizes around the world. Our goal is to enable our merchants and consumers to manage and move their money anywhere in the world, anytime, on any platform, and using any device when sending payments, paying, or getting paid. PayPal Japan is focused on enabling commerce. We want to make it easier and safer to shop and pay for things you want, anywhere and at any time. We are focused on developing solutions that deliver value for our large merchant and consumer base. If you’re keen to join a team of highly motivated thinkers, we might be the workplace for you.  We don’t create products because technology allows it – we use technology to make things work better. We listen to our customers and we want to create wonderful experiences that are commercially relevant. We currently have an exciting opportunity for a Country Information Security Manager to join our growing team in APAC.
