Fullstack Javascript Engineer

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.

PayPal Merchant Marketing Engineering is in charge of creating solutions that help 17 million merchants worldwide understand their customers and convert more sales. We are an elite engineering group known as the MUSE team and are working on the next generation merchant solutions, some things that do not currently exist on the market and a lot of new development across the JavaScript full stack.

We are organized as a cross-functional team composed of Front End Engineers, Product Designers, & Back End Engineers and the ideal candidate has experience working closely with all three practices. We work in a "3-in-a-box" model where we work closely with the Design Lead, Tech Lead and Product Manager to build a well-rounded experience.

We function much like a start-up inside PayPal, we do adopt a rapid iteration Lean Startup and rapid experimentation approach. It's a very fast paced highly innovative environment and we love our work and take pride in it.

Our tech stack currently uses ReactJS + NodeJS. Communication is key to our process, and we don't want to hinder it with walls. Many teams program in pairs, which means you always have another set of eyes to help you. We practice test-driven development and believe that it helps us deliver simple solutions focused on real customer needs. We have no QA department -- developers test, release and monitor their own code. We keep the team in sync with daily stand-ups and have regular retrospectives to discuss things that are going well and opportunities for improvements. We value unique perspectives brought by diverse backgrounds and experiences. A broad range of ideas and perspectives help us to create the best possible product.

We work hard and play hard. Our San Jose campus facilities include beach volleyball courts, tennis courts, basketball courts, ping-pong tables and 2 cafeterias.
