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.

The Checkout Web Experiences team works every day with a mission to build best-in-class experiences that are used by millions of merchants and shoppers worldwide. We're looking for talented, motivated, detail-oriented technologists with a passion for building beautiful products and experiences that surprise and delight our users. We value close collaboration, open communication, detail-oriented quality assurance, and a passion for achieving engineering and product excellence. We champion a culture of continuous improvement and data-driven decision-making through rapid experimentation and learning. We seek an environment of psychological safety where all voices are heard and great ideas can come from anywhere.

As a FullStack Engineer on the Checkout Engineering team, you’ll be embedded on a delivery team focused on delivering delightful and ever-improving user experiences to our users across the globe. Once you are well versed in our product domain and our software architecture, we expect that you are capable of working autonomously to deliver new features and functionality. You will work closely with members of Product, Design and Analytics in all phases of our software development lifecycle: from concepting and planning to development, testing, deployment, and monitoring. You will be responsible for developing industry-leading Checkout experiences that bring unquestionable value to both merchants and buyers. In this role, you will be a part of shaping the future of PayPal's customer-facing Checkout products on the web, from payment buttons to transaction receipts, and every step along the way.

What we are looking for:

  • BS or MS or PhD in Computer Science or related engineering discipline 
  • 2+ years of experience, as we are hiring for various levels of experience, in software design, data structures, algorithms and design patterns 
  • You are skilled in writing modern JavaScript or TypeScript across the stack
  • You're passionate about creating compelling customer-facing experiences at scale
  • High level of familiarity with topics and technologies like React, SASS, GraphQL, and Node.js for building client-side applications with flawless user experiences and interaction design
  • You care about writing high-quality code, and you've written your fair share of automated tests to back up your code
  • You’re highly aware of performance bottlenecks and can design solutions that minimize latency
  • You understand how different devices and form factors impact web applications and user experience
  • You take quality seriously and you test your work thoroughly
  • You have a high degree of empathy for the users of our software
  • You're ultimately a problem solver, and you enjoy working both independently and collaboratively to identify the root cause of any issue
  • Ability to hold yourself and your teammates accountable to the standards we set for ourselves

Things you'll do as a FullStack Engineer at PayPal Checkout:

  • Lead and contribute to engineering efforts within your team
  • Demonstrate ownership of features, projects, modules, and services your team is delivering by challenging product and engineering norms and historical rules
  • Be a champion of clean and scalable coding principles, holding others on your team to the same standard through rigorous code reviews
  • Identify critical non-functional requirements for the work your team is prioritizing (security, performance, scalability, etc.)
  • Collaborate effectively with our counterparts in Product, Design, and Analytics to better understand what our customers need (and why)
  • Work with your Agile team to achieve shared understanding around the new products and features under consideration
  • Continuously learn and share your knowledge and experience with your team
  • Coach and mentor newer or less experienced engineers on your team
  • Collaborate with other developers to design and implement the required solutions
  • Understand and apply our technical architecture to ensure consistent, reliable, and secure deployments
  • Assist with application deployments to our various staging and production environments
  • Bring fresh ideas for how to continuously improve our software and your team
  • Advocate for ways to remediate technical debt on an ongoing basis
  • Participate in our on-call rotation to support troubleshooting any major incidents that occur outside of office hours
  • Develop sound and scalable testing practices for yourself and your team to ensure a high level of quality assurance

Nice to have:

  • Extensive experience building AB and multivariate test plans

We know the confidence gap and imposter syndrome can get in the way of meeting spectacular candidates. If you care about delivering great technical products with a willingness to learn and help, please don't hesitate to apply.
