Job Description:

At PayPal (NASDAQ: PYPL), we believe that every person has the right to participate fully in the global economy. Our mission is to democratize financial services to ensure that everyone, regardless of background or economic standing, has access to affordable, convenient, and secure products and services to take control of their financial lives.

Just Venmo me. You may have heard—or used—this phrase before. Venmo has reached verb-status, becoming synonymous with “sending & receiving money.” But Venmo isn’t just about transactions. It’s about interactions. It’s where your money finds meaning as you share, connect, and split purchases with friends. People love sending money and paying with Venmo, and we've come a long way from our humble beginnings as a P2P app. Millions of users have now also made our products such as the Venmo Debit Card, Venmo Checkout, Venmo Credit Card, Crypto on Venmo (and more) a part of their financial lives, and there’s so much more we can do as their go-to for fast, safe, and secure payments.

Venmo was founded on the principles of breaking down the intimidating barriers around financial transactions to make them intuitive, friendly, and even fun. And it worked: people love sending money with Venmo, and we are growing rapidly! But we are only just getting started. We want to take that magic of sending money with Venmo and cascade it into every place where people use money. That means connecting people to their money in the most intuitive and fun way possible, then connecting people with each other. Users already love Venmo, but we know there are lots of things we have not thought of to make the experience of using Venmo even more delightful and valuable. All that is going to take a lot of figuring out. Let us figure it out together!
