It’s a match!

We would like to invite you for an interview. Here is what you should expect:

Our recruiters will first contact you over the phone and discuss the position and your experience. If your skills and experience are the right fit for what we are looking for, and what you are looking for, we then schedule a series of interviews with different peers and stakeholders. This is also your opportunity to get to know PayPal culture and the team you are interviewing for. Don’t hesitate to ask questions to better understand the environment, the role, and challenges.

We are currently interviewing virtually. Here are a few tips that can help you with virtual interviews.

The virtual interview

Our goal is to provide the best candidate experience possible. We want you to feel comfortable and confident going into your interview. Preparation will ensure you gather all the information you need about the job, feel assured in answering questions, and be present in the moment. This is your chance to make a great first impression with your new manager and colleagues.
