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’s Global Credit Risk, Seller Risk and Collections (GCSC) team is looking to hire and develop leadership candidates for a two-year rotational program to build the hard skills needed to successfully contribute to the GCSC team. You will rotate through four of the different GCSC functional areas (Credit Risk, Seller Risk, Collections, Intelligence and Controls) for approximately six months at a time. During each of these rotations, you will work with teams to provide actionable solutions for PayPal’s Risk Organization. Throughout the two-year rotational program, you will be exposed to leadership both inside and outside of the organization, including but not limited to other Risk and Platforms teams that collectively form PayPal’s Risk Organizations, PayPal’s Credit Business, Global Sales, Global Data Services, M&A and others. Upon completion of the program, we will work to place you in an available position on the GCSC team.

This role will focus on developing new technical and analytical skills as well as improving previously learned skills, all while leveraging past experiences to become a successful leader within the GCSC team.  This development will be accomplished not only as you actively participate in different workstreams within GCSC functional areas, but also through a combination of mentoring and networking.  You will be provided a dedicated mentor that will meet with you regularly to determine an actionable plan for your long-term career progression.  You will also be provided many opportunities to grow your professional network throughout GCSC and the larger PayPal teams.

The specific positions you fill will vary depending on the functional area you are supporting during your different rotations providing experiences across the entire GCSC organization.  During each rotation you will be expected to support analytical efforts that help inform and drive decisions by engaging with GCSC leadership.  As a thought leader, you will recommend improvements to existing frameworks, processes and metrics that ultimately ensure the success and growth of PayPal’s business portfolios.
