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 210 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.

As an Hebrew Merchant Reactive Risk Specialist (m/f), your primary responsibility will be to mitigate risk (specifically credit risk) for PayPal. The question an MRR Specialist asks is "could this merchant cause a financial loss to PayPal in the foreseeable future?" An MRR Specialist will typically be involved in monitoring merchant accounts for indications of increased risk, and performing in-depth analysis on accounts requiring further investigation. While investigating merchant accounts, you will look into the account’s historical record and their company's business model and financial performance to determine the risk and exposure to PayPal. Once the risk has been assessed, an MRR Specialist may decide that it needs to be mitigated and will place reserves and/or limitations on the account. In addition, the Specialist will continuously evaluate products, developing technologies, and customer trends to ensure optimal risk mitigation practices. Performance will be based on the ability to minimize risk to PayPal, the quality of your decision-making, and adherence to MRR operating procedures. An MRR Specialist possesses strong interpersonal skills, business acumen, analytical skills, creative thinking and exceptional written and oral communication skills. Additionally, MRR Specialists will actively participate in debates around ideas for process improvement as well as provide constructive criticism to peers
