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.

In 2018, iZettle became part of the PayPal family. iZettle is on a mission to help small businesses succeed in a world of giants. Tens of millions of small businesses worldwide are still being underserved by the traditional players. By giving small businesses the tools to get paid, sell smarter and grow, we’re empowering them to reach their full potential. Together with PayPal, we can reach 24 million merchants across the world with more of the affordable tools they need to thrive. Join us in putting an end to the ordinary way the world defines financial freedom.

We’re looking for curious and engaged Machine Learning Engineers to join our team. Are you passionate about hands-on applications of machine learning, enjoy solving business problems and seeing the measurable impact of your work? Do you believe in empowering small businesses around the world to succeed? Join our Machine Learning team in Stockholm.

As a Machine Learning Engineer at iZettle

  • you develop and ship machine learning solutions for automatic predictions and decisions, and personalized user experiences

  • you partner with product/business owners and lead data projects end-to-end: recognizing opportunities, defining metrics and goals, implementing ML solutions, and evaluating the impact

  • you embed within multi-functional product teams to collaborate on implementing and integrating solutions

  • you also have a team of extraordinary colleagues to help figure out problems, and share best practices and learnings

  • you will continuously learn together, through our weekly research paper study group, attending conferences and events, and collaborating with academia

We hire people. Not CVs.

As a Machine Learning Engineer, you'll join a team that works across the organization using machine learning to build intelligence into our products, optimize sales and marketing processes, and improve risk management. We’re a prestigeless bunch of people from 4 countries who value learning and sharing and like to team up when tackling problems. If (when!) you get stuck, your team members will be just a coffee away. 

You'll be a great addition to the iZettle team if...

  • you have hands-on experience of implementing production machine learning systems, and also a solid understanding of ML theory

  • you are comfortable working in cross functional teams and on products with short development cycles and quickly evolving priorities

  • you are fluent in Python or R and open to learning new languages

  • you are pragmatic, product-focused and passionate about the end results, not just the techniques used to get there

  • you're a good communicator and you're comfortable explaining complex results, models and methods to both technical and non-technical audiences

Additionally, if you have used data pipelining tools such as Apache Spark or Apache Beam/Google DataFlow, in an AWS or GCP environment, let us know. If not, we'll be happy to help you get started.

We're all for equality for all.
Tattoo artists. Dog groomers. Cake bakers. Jewellery makers. You name them - at iZettle - we help them. And to do that well, we need our people to be as unique and diverse as they are. We’re proud to be an equal opportunity employer and together we uphold PayPal’s One Team Behaviour, striving to be a place where everyone can benefit from equal access to professional development, bring their whole self to work and most of all, feel like they belong.

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.
