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.

The Data Platform Engineering Team is looking for a highly talented, self-driven, proven software engineer to help design and build core data services that deal with big data (>90PB) at low latency (i.e. sub-second) for a variety of use-cases spanning near-real time analytics and machine intelligence.

Do you consider yourself a software engineer, coder, hacker, inventor, hackerpreneur, etc...? Are you excited about not just learning new things (languages, frameworks, & technology) but mastering them? Do you care about building clean APIs, solving tough problems, inventing solutions when needed, and building resilient systems? Do you believe that your work should not only impact PayPal but the world beyond our 4 walls? If yes, we would like to talk with you!

  • Share your work with the world-at-large via authoring blogs & articles, contributing to open source projects, and by speaking internally (and external to PayPal)
  • Balance all of this against the need to execute
  • Mentor colleagues in order to help develop strong coding practices and standards across the org

Requirements:

  • Strong real-world experience with one or more of the following technologies at scale is required:
    • Stream Processing ecosystem (e.g. Kafka, Storm, Samza)

    • NoSQL (e.g. Cassandra, Aerospike, CockroachDB)
  • Outstanding architectural and implementation skills is required
  • Proficient in one or more of Java, Scala, Python, and Go is required
  • Strong real-world experience with one or more of the following technologies at scale is nice-to-have:
    • Web Services-based Architectures (e.g. AWS Lambda, Microservices)
    • Container-ecosystem (Docker, Mesos, Kubernetes)
  • Experience with UI development is a plus
  • Open-source contribution is a plus

Basic Qualifications:


8+ years of experience in building and managing highly scalable, highly available systems
