We are PayPal
Today, PayPal is accepted by millions of online merchants around the world and used by over 100 million consumers across 190 markets and 24 currencies. We've spent the last 12 years putting choice, flexibility and control in customers' hands to help them pay anytime, anywhere and on any device.
PayPal was acquired by eBay (which had adopted it as its preferred trusted payment method) in 2002. Since then we have gone from strength to strength.
Why? Because PayPal is a pioneer. Our aim is to fundamentally change the way that people think about money forever – and to be at the centre of our customers' financial and business lives. We will see more change in retail finance in the next 10 years than we have seen in the past 100 years. And PayPal is leading that revolution. You can call it a digital wallet, a mobile wallet, a wallet in the cloud, a movement towards enabling secure commerce and payments – anytime, anywhere, any how. We call it PayPal.
We find people appreciate being able to ask lots of questions, meet a wide range of people and get to the heart of what it's like to work at PayPal. At the end of the process, we know lots about you and you are in a comfortable position to make an informed choice about us.
Your career with us
We've learned what makes smart, imaginative people tick. We know they value space to learn and grow; they want new opportunities to apply their skills and experience – and that's what we want in our fast-growth business. PayPal is full of opportunity for career progression and development. And we offer excellent career options to those who show the ability to scale with our business, in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and in many other locations globally. If you are seeking an environment where no day is the same, and opportunities are limitless you will thrive at PayPal.
Development at PayPal is a serious topic firmly on the commercial agenda. From our CEO downwards you can rest assured that everyone knows that we will only achieve our goals if we grow our people. And we do it with rigour, with a keen focus on regular development conversations with individuals as well as solid investment in excellent leadership programmes, mentoring, coaching and work shadowing, and state-of-the-art learning tools, using the best resources available. And development is not limited to a few – we regularly run company-wide 'development days' for everyone where we set time aside to explore topics important for professional development. And we pay particular attention to ensuring our opportunities are open to all, including sponsoring initiatives to support women's progression.
What we Offer
Individuality is welcomed and respected at PayPal. You have the option to work flexibly. As long as you achieve your performance objectives and embrace your responsibilities, you can organise your working day as you see fit, from coming later to the office to avoid the traffic to working from home on occasion. Routine email from the weekends is banned as part of our work / life balance philosophy.
Our kitchens are stocked with healthy food, fruit and snacks, all free – it's not an unfamiliar sight to see PayPal people preparing breakfast together. There are sports clubs and exercise classes. Completely open-plan, our offices have none of the traditional status symbols. The physical environment is designed with employees in mind, whether you need to grab some quiet thinking time, brainstorm with colleagues or hold a formal meeting – it's all set up to be just right.
Regular 'all hands' communication sessions keep people in the picture on what's happening in the business – there's no hierarchy, just everyone together as one team. And last – but not least - we give a fully paid 4-week sabbatical to all employees every 5 years – our people take the chance to explore new horizons and come back refreshed and rejuvenated.
What we believe inPayPal people are smart, friendly and hard-working, excited to be shaping the future of commerce and passionate about innovation in payments. We are a proud member of the eBay family, part of a great international network, working daily with colleagues across the globe, and collaborating on initiatives that create an edge in satisfying our PayPal customers. No matter where you work, we subscribe to the same values – honesty, integrity and keeping it human – as we focus on our ambitious plans to deliver the future of money. We live for our customers and take pride in our relations with them.
