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 210 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.

Being able to tokenize the PayPal wallet and make it accessible via open loop rails represents the most scalable way to achieve global reach.
