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 267 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 MUSE team works on next-generation merchant solutions. We build things that don't exist yet in PayPal, and sometimes don't exist in the market. We move quickly and work with modern technology to create brand-new products seen and used by millions of people worldwide. We don't drop specs from an ivory tower. We're looking for someone who doesn't just want to code, but wants to shape the vision of the products we build. Developers on this team have a voice -- we work in a "3-in-a-box" model (Design/Product/Tech) and develop well-rounded product experiences together. In addition to interesting and challenging work, we offer world-class benefits like untracked vacation, a full gym with fitness classes, and top-notch medical insurance. Our campus is vibrant and comfortable, and includes beach volleyball and tennis courts and a brand-new outdoor café serving beer & wine around a cozy firepit.
