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 325 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.

In 2018, iZettle became part of the PayPal family. iZettle is on a mission to help small businesses succeed in a world of giants.

By giving small businesses the tools to get paid, sell smarter and grow, we’re empowering them to reach their full potential. Together with PayPal, we can reach 24 million merchants across the world with more of the affordable tools they need to thrive. Join us in putting an end to the ordinary way the world defines financial freedom.

As we continue on our quest to democratise financial services, we are now looking for one more passionate Backend Developer to join our Inventory Team. In this role, you will be part of a diverse and cross-functional Team working on a functionality enabling Merchants from all around the World to efficiently manage their inventory and make wise decisions for their businesses. To carry out our mission, we rely on dedicated teams embracing the opportunity to openly discuss and challenge each other on the best way forward.

Go where people speak your language


At iZettle, everyone actively contributes in building the best one-stop-shop for small businesses. While we take pride in how far we've come, we have no intention of sticking to known patterns or old truths as we think that breaking the status quo is key when it comes to innovation. Part of our PoS Alliance, the core mission of the Inventory Team consists in helping sellers with their stock management by offering fast and reliable tools in our Point of Sale (PoS) App.

In this role, you will get the opportunity to closely collaborate with Client Developers in order to create a tailored API and User Experience to our Merchants, as well as with Backend Developers in charge of developing a robust end-to-end solution catered to our user's needs. Are you still with us? If yes, keep scrolling!

A glimpse of what you would get here


At iZettle, we all believe in using the best tools for the task and that's why we continuously review our toolkit, architecture and ways of working. Today we work with Java 15, Kotlin, GraphQL, Dropwizard, Wildfly, Docker, Terraform, PostgreSQL, Cassandra, and everything is hosted on Amazon Web Services.

On a day-to-day basis, you will have for mission to architect and develop your code while taking care of the infrastructure and monitoring our systems. Overall, your everyday life would include:

  • Design, implement and maintain features with a high level of autonomy;

  • Take part in system design and collaborate with Teams and other Developers across the whole Backend Chapter, including code reviews, bouncing ideas and Mob Programming (we're big fans);

  • Experiment and learn about design, technology and processes;

  • Ensure a high level of quality, usability and maintainability of the (reusable) components and code.

The traits you need to exceed

We believe that you are a great Teammate known for your inner ability to take and solve technical challenges for a common purpose. Grounded and humble, you naturally share your knowledge, experience and opinions without ever losing sight of the importance for everyone to have a chance to contribute to the team's success. Lastly, you make it fun.



The skills you need to succeed

  • A proven experience in Backend Development with Java 8+ and NoSQL Databases (ideally Cassandra);

  • An expertise in designing and maintaining Libraries/APIs used by others;

  • Great communication and collaboration skills combined with a desire to join a diverse Team working in an Agile environment.

Earn extra points if you are...

  • Consistently keeping up-to-date with the latest evolutions in Tech;

  • Familiar with Kotlin (would be really good...);

  • Experienced (+ happy) in Pair/Mob programming.


Sounds like you? Bring your talent to our attention!
