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 237 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.

This position includes design and implementation of enterprise-level infrastructure and applications for payment processing activities. The candidate will work with peers in development and product management to solve complex software engineering problems and proactively propose solutions to address technical challenges and business requirements. The candidate will be expected to quickly become an effective member and eventually a leader within their individual scrum team after a reasonable amount of ramp-up time. After adequate ramp-up time the candidate is expected to come up to speed on the complexities of the PayPal environment – but there is a strong expectation that the candidate will be a self-starter and drive their own education.

Job Requirements:

The ideal candidate must have broad experience in enterprise application design and architecture, system performance and scalability, as well as some knowledge of related technical architectures (network, security, and infrastructure engineering) and data architecture.

•8+ year experience in web services, distributed systems, and highly available and scalable applications.

•Strong object-oriented programming skills in Java and /or C++

•Very good knowledge of Core Java , C++ and J2EE and should have worked on high availability, low latency platforms.

•Ability to question status quo and identify bad design/code patterns which can impact performance and maintainability of the code.

•Excellent understanding of system design and design patterns.

•Previous experience with the Agile methodology.

•Experience in developing robust RESTful services is desirable.

•Have very good communication skills with the ability to drive cross-functional projects by driving consensus

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.
