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 254 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.

PayPal’s vision is to fulfil the need for a fair, secure, and inclusive financial network to enable full participation of all people in the global economy. We are a trusted part of people’s financial lives and a partner to merchants in 200+ markets around the world with more than 203 million active accounts and payment volumes in excess of $400 billion a year. Our ability to build unique experiences, enable seamless commerce across channels – be it web, in-app, or in-store – mitigate fraud, and be central to consumers’ financial needs makes us one of the largest and fastest growing Fintech companies in the world. One of the top strategic priorities for PayPal is to make PayPal available to our consumers wherever they shop – web, in-app, or in store – which is $28 trillion market opportunity. A robust issuing, tokenization, and transaction-processing platform is essential for the universal acceptance of PayPal globally. Being able to tokenize the PayPal wallet and make it accessible via open loop rails represents the most scalable way to achieve global reach. The Card Center of Excellence (CCOE) within PayPal is tasked with ensuring Operational excellence of PayPal’s card programs and absorb the complexities of managing the day-to-day operations of a card program with our card vendors. The CCOE is responsible for efficient running of existing card programs, and smooth onboarding of new card programs, and enable the business owners to focus on growth and expansion of our card programs.

  • Achieve cost reduction goals for the overall card program, as well as meet/exceed other operating metrics by working closely with our card vendors
  • Document and share learnings and best practices with the Business Units, and ensure best-in-class practices are absorbed within all card programs within PayPal
  • Continuously Monitor card vendor performance metrics and performance against SLA. Conduct Quarterly and Annual Business reviews with Card vendors to review performance and improvements with the vendors
  • Serve as the single point-of-contact with our card vendors and manage PayPal’s day-to-day operating relationship with Card vendors, and manage escalations as they rise
  • Assimilate new card-related technology into PayPal’s products, and work with card vendors to build capabilities that don’t presently exist in order to meet PayPal’s business needs
