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 267 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.

The Position is for a Business Systems Analyst to work on the Real time data integration hub with Transaction State Management. This involves working across PayPal and its subsidiaries to ingest payments, contextual and end to end transaction state data into an Operational Data Store for downstream analytics by multiple stakeholders. The Business Systems Analyst is responsible for understanding the end to end payments data flow, and working with downstream users to understand the use cases for this data. He/She should do a gap analysis and build a data mapping to support the use cases.

At PayPal, we put people at the center of everything we do. Founded in 1998, PayPal plays an active role in defining the future of how people buy, sell, lend and donate. PayPal gives people better ways to connect to their money and to each other, helping them send money without sharing financial information and with the flexibility to pay using their PayPal account balances, bank accounts, PayPal Credit and credit cards. We believe that now is the time to reimagine money, to democratize financial services, so that managing and moving money is a right for all citizens, not just the affluent.

We believe every person has the right to participate fully in the global economy. We have an obligation to empower people to exercise this right and improve financial health.

As a leader in Financial Technology, we believe in providing simple, affordable, secure and reliable financial services and digital payments that enable the hopes, dreams and ambitions of millions of people around the world.

It is our duty and privilege to be Customer Champions. We have a fundamental commitment to put our customers at the center of everything we do. We must be bold and innovative and execute flawlessly against our immediate goals, with our eyes always on the future.

With 250 million active customers and 14 million merchants, we have created an open and secure payments ecosystem that people and businesses use to securely transact with each other online, in stores and on mobile devices. Our global reach into 203 markets allows us to deliver seamless and secure payment experiences around the world, giving people the ability to pay with confidence with the technology they love.

We’re at a unique moment in time.  Over the next few years, the world’s buying experiences will be rewired as consumers shift to mobile, security becomes a greater concern and digital wallets shift from a nice-to-have to a must-have.  This poses a massive opportunity for us at PayPal.

PayPal is the most widely used, trusted digital wallet in the world, but in order to remain competitive in this changing landscape, we need to become relevant across all channels – in-store, online and on mobile.  Our solid foundation gives us a head start, but we now need to position ourselves to become THE platform for mobile and next-generation commerce.
