Job Description

Fueled by a fundamental belief that having access to financial services creates opportunity, PayPal (NASDAQ: PYPL) is committed to democratizing financial services and empowering people and businesses to join and thrive in the global economy. Our open digital payments platform gives PayPal’s 392 million active account holders the confidence to connect and transact in new and powerful ways, whether they are online, on a mobile device, in an app, or in person. Through a combination of technological innovation and strategic partnerships, PayPal creates better ways to manage and move money, and offers choice and flexibility when sending payments, paying or getting paid. Available in more than 200 markets around the world, the PayPal platform, including Braintree, Venmo and Xoom enables consumers and merchants to receive money in more than 100 currencies, withdraw funds in 56 currencies and hold balances in their PayPal accounts in 25 currencies.

PayPal is a global leader in online payments and democratization of financial services, providing payment solutions for hundreds of millions of customers all over the world. The data scientists in PayPal’s Global Data Science organization (GDS) work to better understand our end-users, identify opportunities and improve our products by creating personal and smart experiences. Making use of PayPal’s endless amount of data, they leverage machine learning skills and domain knowledge to deliver end-to-end Data Science solutions to internal customers throughout this global company. We look to employ folks with sharp analytical skills, a passion for deriving new insights from unimaginable amounts of data, solving unique challenges, and leveraging machine learning algorithms in a highly collaborative, values-driven environment. We are looking for a results-driven people manager with machine-learning experience and excellent analytical and intrerpersonal skils to lead a team in Global Data Sciences focused on building predictive models for merchant risk management. The team’s flagship solutions require innovative approaches to challenges that haven’t yet been tackled with ML inside PayPal like global, NLP-driven merchant classification and leveraging new, external data sources for assessments of long-term merchant risk.

In your role as team manager, you will:

  • Lead a team of highly skilled data scientists
  • Craft a vision for the team and run the day-to-day execution of that plan
  • Build long-term relationships with internal partners/customers
  • Translate business problems into solveable data science challenges

Position Requirements  

We know the confidence gap and imposter syndrome can get in the way of meeting spectacular candidates. Please don't hesitate to apply.

  • Team management experience
  • High level communication skills
  • Team player, responsible, delivery-oriented
  • Minimum 4 years of relevant work experience
  • Masters, PhD, or equivalent experience in a quantitative field (Computer Science, Mathematics, Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, etc.)
  • Code writing capability in any programming language (preferably Python, R, Java, Scala, etc.) and familiarity with relevant ML packages
  • Hadoop and big data experience – an advantage
  • Excellent spoken and written English

We're a purpose-driven company whose beliefs are the foundation for how we conduct business every day. We hold ourselves to our One Team Behaviors which demand that we hold the highest ethical standards, to empower an open and diverse workplace, and strive to treat everyone who is touched by our business with dignity and respect. Our employees challenge the status quo, ask questions, and find solutions. We want to break down barriers to financial empowerment. Join us as we change the way the world defines financial freedom.
