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 254 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.

We work closely with our app engineering, design, content, and product teams to test and iterate on new solutions to customers’ problems. We also collaborate with a tools and infrastructure team who are dedicated to support our Continuous Integration, Quality and Release processes. Your contributions will enhance our ability to assess the quality of our app more efficiently, allowing our app to be updated in the App Store or Play Store every 3 weeks.

  • Work with product, project, and engineering teams to deliver products on schedule that solve our customers’ problems
  • Collaborate with Engineering, Tools & Infrastructure, and Release teams to resolve bugs and meet SLAs
  • Develop and communicate technical processes, standards, and best practices

Required Technical Skills

  • 5+ years of software development experience
  • Strong understanding of object-oriented programming in Java, Groovy, and Ruby
  • Solid understanding of Appium Framework
  • Good experience with XCode or Android Studio IDE
  • Experience with continuous integration pipelines (Jenkins 2.0)
  • Good background writing functional automation tests
  • Knowledge of version control systems such as GitHub
  • Proficiency administering Unix-based platforms
  • B.S. or equivalent degree in Computer Science

  • Interested in keeping up-to-date with the latest technological developments
  • Comfortable working in an Agile environment
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills
  • Interest in the payments industry

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.
