Job Description
PayPal In-Store is committed to revolutionizing customers' retail experiences with safe and faster mobile payment solutions by working closely with retailers of varied verticals around the globe. Working in partnership with Product and UX teams, we build the next generation of commerce products, including mobile payments, cardless ATM cash access, cloud based offers and loyalty, to name a few. We are looking for a passionate senior software engineer to join our team based in Newton, MA to lead a team of software engineers in developing In-Store platform features.

PayPal's In-Store team takes the customer experience for our products seriously, with particular focus on quality, security, performance and availability.

Do you have a passion for good architecture and design? Is it intuitive to you why we built our platform on microservice architecture and follow domain-driven design principles? If you enjoy working across domains, and are comfortable switching gears - from developing payment transaction processing solutions and designing a PCI-compliant digital card wallet to calculating cryptograms and integrating loyalty programs; if you have an eye for customer pain points, are driven to learn new business domains just as much as new technologies, and care about quality; if you interact effectively in a team environment and take ownership for and pride in your work - then we would love to hear from you!

Requirements :
