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 286 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.

The Checkout Web team builds the user experiences used by millions of buyers across the globe. We don’t think buying online has to be a “one size fits all” process, we’re on a mission to provide smarter, more tailored, experiences to all of our users. It’s a future where buyers can pay the way they want with all the accompanying benefits, all without sellers needing to know anything about a complex global e-commerce ecosystem. The team is at the forefront of GraphQL adoption at PayPal, and we’re using React to build dynamic UIs as we explore and test new concepts and smart experiences. We’re seeking an experienced Lead Engineer to join us on this journey — you’ll be working with a team of intelligent, passionate people and helping shape the future of PayPal.

What you'll be doing

  • Leading the build and development of new user facing payment experiences.
  • Partner closely with cross functional partners in design and product.
  • Drive discussion and provide feedback on code and architecture.

Job Requirements:

  • 6+ years of work experience in developing web applications, most recently in a team Lead capacity.
  • Experience in building single page applications using React or other similar modern JavaScript libraries utilized for rendering both client side and server side. 
  • Familiarity with ES6 and newer versions of JavaScript.
  • Experience in developing production Node.js applications (high volume preferred).
  • Experience with GraphQL and related libraries (for example Apollo) preferred.
  • Strong CSS3 and component skills building.
  • Understanding of JavaScript application design and testing using frameworks.
  • Knowledge with cross-browser, cross-platform, and design constraints on the Web.
  • Experience with automation frameworks and testing tools preferred.
  • A constant desire to grow, learn, and explore new things.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.

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.
