Job Description
PayPal is seeking passionate engineers to create new native mobile experiences for millions of active merchant users.

We work together on close knit, small teams to develop our apps. We are passionate about respecting code quality and following our defined best practices while always searching for new, better ways to get things done. We value our ego-free code reviews and have continuous integration set up to test our pull requests, deliver nightly builds and run nightly regressions of our automated tests. We work closely and quickly with our design team to build, user-test and iterate new features with a customer driven focus. Finally, we value our casual work-hard/play-hard office culture and make ample use of our gaming areas, foosball, ping pong tables, board game collection and kitchens stocked with coffee and snacks.
