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.

We solve world-scale problems and provide opportunities to match. We build diverse teams that recognize our strengths and allow us to work on our weaknesses. You bring skills and a relentless focus and we'll provide the support you need to do the best work of your life.

Our focus is teaming with smart engineers who are passionate about their craft and excited to build software for our unique solutions in the space.

Developers have the chance to work on various teams and stacks. We also believe in using the best tool for the job.  Here’s more:

  • Communication is key to our process, and we don't want to hinder it with walls. Many teams program in pairs, which means you always have another set of eyes to help you.
  • Most teams practice test-driven development and believe that it helps deliver simple solutions focused on real customer needs. Developers test, release and monitor their own code.
  • We keep the team in sync with daily stand-ups and have regular retrospectives to discuss things that are going well and opportunities for improvements.
  • We value unique perspectives brought by diverse backgrounds and experiences. A broad range of ideas and perspectives help us to create the best possible product.

What we look for in you:

  • 4+ years experience building software or web applications with object oriented or functional programming languages. We focus on writing clean, well-designed and scalable code
  • Ability and desire to work in our collaborative environment: open team room, pair programming and fluid interactions with all products and operations teams
  • Interest in TDD and specific experiences using a test heavy approach to solve problems and create solutions
  • Focus on building solutions utilizing an agile approach: close relationships with Product Managers, communicating and digesting real time feedback, and working smart to build story cards on daily basis

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