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 nearly 200 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. 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 Inc. is the world’s leading digital and mobile payments platform with a total payment volume of $354B arising out of 6B+ payment transactions (out of which 2B+ were mobile payment transactions) in 2016. Come join us in the mobile payments revolution as we advance the bar for how people pay and get paid!

This team builds and manages the messaging platform that enables asynchronous communication across loosely integrated systems for all of PayPal. This platform serves a variety of SLA requirements that span the entire spectrum of messaging and streaming – from lossless transactional (aka ACID) messaging (zero data loss) to low-latency messaging (in milliseconds) and high throughput streaming (6M+ messages per sec and growing). If you are excited about working on a messaging system that streams around 500 billion events per day and make it go beyond 1 trillion events per day, then this team is a perfect match for you. If you believe in building services whose Quality-Of-Service (QoS) parameters should be as easy as adjusting the dials of a thermostat, then this team is your destination.

You will work on building products from the ground up as well as identifying exciting new open-source components/technologies and hardening them (99.999%) to scale at the levels expected of PayPal’s platform services.
