Job Description

At PayPal, we are rethinking how to provide diverse solutions to real-world challenges. Through the Recharge program, we encourage skilled women technologists who have taken a career break for personal or family reasons to feel equipped to return to the workforce.

Are you a technical woman who has taken a career break? Or perhaps you have taught yourself to code, but you don’t have any industry work experience.
