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 375 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. Tens of millions of small businesses worldwide are still being underserved by the traditional players. 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.

Who we are 

The Data Analytics team is a part of iZettle’s data science area and our mission is to help iZettle make better decisions using data. We are divided into three sub-teams: Product Analytics, Business Analytics and Central Analytics. We own end-to-end analytics, from tracking and defining KPIs to setting targets and running A/B tests to evaluate performance of new initiatives. We work closely with the business and partner up with department leads to drive data-driven decision-making. We also empower other iZettlers to use data in their work by training them, making data accessible through our BI tools and articulating and communicating actionable insights based on data. 

We are currently 25 data analysts/scientists, with 9 different nationalities, and we are growing. This role is to build and manage the Business Analytics team, which currently consists of 3 data analysts/scientists. 

What You'll Do 

The Business Analytics team is responsible for supporting the commercial teams, such as Marketing, Sales and Support, in making informed decisions based on data. As a Business Analytics Manager, you will be responsible for providing strategic direction and goals for the Business Analytics team and be the bridge between the different Analytics and Data areas (Product, Business and Central, Machine Learning, Data Platform). 

You will be responsible for attracting, recruiting and retaining high performing data analysts/scientists. You will coach them to have the highest possible impact and collaborate with the team stakeholders – mainly department leads – to align on the ways of working and focus together with the analysts. As a manager, you will furthermore make sure the team and the individuals reach their goals by coaching them in their daily work, inspire them to reach higher and support them in their challenges. 

We hire people. Not CVs. 

You have a background as a data analyst/scientist and have a business mind-set. You are passionate about growing others and have a keen interest in people and leadership. You are able to meet each individual where they are on their growth curve and adjust your expectations and goal setting depending on if they are just out of school or a senior analyst… but if you haven’t had formal people responsibilities before, that’s fine. We can help you grow into the role. 

In addition: 

  • An understanding of how data can be used to form decision making 

  • Experience from working with customer acquisition and growth 

  • Quantitative skills 

  • SQL and programming skills 

  • Data warehousing (preferably GCP) 

We're all for equality for all.

Tattoo artists. Dog groomers. Cake bakers. Jewellery makers. You name them - at iZettle - we help them. And to do that well, we need our people to be as unique and diverse as they are. We’re proud to be an equal opportunity employer and together we uphold PayPal’s One Team Behaviour, striving to be a place where everyone can benefit from equal access to professional development, bring their whole self to work and most of all, feel like they belong.

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.
