Job Description

Are you a highly motivated, problem solver? Do you bring order to chaos and thrive in ambiguity? Do you build paths forward when others are stuck and adapt quickly to change? Then we want you on our SRE PMO team!

This project will be responsible for owning the operations, planning and execution of key projects in an organized, disciplined and predictable fashion. You will be a critical partner to ePMO Program Managers in managing dependencies and links between projects, resolving problems, planning issues and project changes/challenges, executing effective communication processes to inform the regional teams about program progress, roadmaps and key deliverables, and by anticipating project needs and solving them enthusiastically (e.g. “see around corners.").

Our work supports the whole of PayPal and thus, the millions of merchants and consumers—our customers—worldwide who rely on our platform every day.

You are detail oriented, meticulous, customer-focused, and have a reputation for getting things done. Moreover, you love operating in a dynamic and demanding environment, think critically, act quickly, and partner naturally. Good judgment, and team building skills are coveted.

  • Impeccable collaboration and analytical skills
  • A Bachelor’s degree or higher in a discipline emphasizing communication skills, business savvy and/or organizational know-how.
