Job Snapshot

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 305 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 Checkout Web team builds the user experiences used by millions of buyers across the globe. We don’t think buying online has to be a one size fits all process, we’re on a mission to provide smarter, more tailored, experiences to all of our users. It’s a future where buyers can pay how they want, when they want, all without sellers needing to know anything about a complex global e-commerce ecosystem. We’re looking for an experienced engineering manager to lead the team focused on bringing our checkout experiences and capabilities “up the funnel” to seller’s websites, eliminating the need to redirect buyers to PayPal to complete their purchase. You’ll be responsible for developing and scaling a team of JavaScript engineers, partnering closely with product and design leadership to define the teams roadmap, and coordinating across dependent engineering teams to deliver on that plan.
