2014 is a great time to join PayPal.
With our move to NodeJS and the release of our open source KrakenJS code base, we are rewriting and redesigning all of our experiences -- all on NodeJS.
Productivity is the Reason
Elsewhere we have written about that move, but the real impetus behind the move is simple -- Developer productivity. Having a single technology stack for the frontend experience is key to accelerating development.
Do you enjoy building products? Making experiences that people love?
Do you want to build experiences at scale that impact 120 million + users?
Note: while we are looking for the "unicorns", show us you have strong skills in either the frontend or the node layer and we believe we can grow you across the stack.
In the works is a frontend engineering skills bootcamp (most likely 3 days). We also will be bringing some external training in-house.
So how about it? Join me in this adventure. We are on a journey to completely transform PayPal and have made huge strides. Help us bring it home. Be a part of one of our application engineering teams.
Positions are mostly in San Jose, CA. But also looking in Austin, Boston, Singapore and Bangalore, India.
