Germany stands as one of our biggest markets outside of the US and our employees in Berlin and Dreilinden are busy shaping the future of commerce offline, online and on every device. We’re pushing the boundaries of products and services for PayPal customers.
Our site, in the central location of Berlin-Wilmersdorf, was set up in 2011. Here, our diverse teams, support our German merchant business.
In our purpose-built Dreilinden Technology Campus, which is just 30-minutes from Berlin, you’ll find exciting career opportunities in many important areas of the business: Technology, Business Development, Product Management, Marketing, Sales, Legal, Analytics, and Communications. Our office is a great place to grow a career and, for the 2nd year in a row, we were voted one of the Best Multinational Workplaces in Europe.
While we’re driven in our work, we’re just as passionate about having fun as a team. From German celebrations to Dutch traditional days to Hebrew festivities, we organize many activities that help our teams connect and celebrate important events. We also host a monthly “Stammtisch” (“after work catch-up”), an informal get together where employees can network, exchange ideas, build friendships and learn about business opportunities.
Diversity is the catalyst of innovation. We’re committed to enabling talented people from every background and perspective to thrive. We're continuously working to create an inclusive and participatory work environment through global programs like our Women’s Initiative Network, and our PayPal Alliance of Gay and Lesbian Employees. In 2015, we were happy to receive Great Place to Work recognition from PRIDE175.
To ensure professional growth, we have personal training, group workshops and coaching programs. We love to recognize employee growth and each quarter one of our hard working employees is recognized through our Reward and Recognition program where there is an opportunity to receive cash bonuses.
We also understand that time is a valuable commodity. Our employees are encouraged to find their ideal work-life balance and do their work where they’re most productive, be it at home, in the office, or outdoors.
Our headquarters is just 30 minutes outside Berlin in Dreilinden. Our campus is alive with energy and ideas. Employees take free fitness classes at our gym, eat healthy in our onsite cafe, enjoy free drinks and snacks and have the option to join many sports clubs. They can even use our electric car for free! Both of our offices are easily accessible by car, bike and public transport. We support the costs of the daily travel to the office and at Dreilinden we even have a free shuttle to the nearest train station, a bicycle rental service and free onsite parking.
A solid work-life balance includes health benefits and ensuring economic stability. We have many policies and plans that support each employee's financial security today and in retirement. We provide flexible working hours and part-time options to help families and those caring for loved ones. For working parents, we help with kindergarten placement around Dreilinden.
Every full-time employee can also take advantage of our tuition reimbursement, pension plan and discounts on PayPal stock. Following each 5 years of service, there is an opportunity to take an extra 4 week paid leave to fulfill your personal dreams like traveling completing home renovations or spending time with family and friends.
While we’re enthusiastic about changing the world of commerce, we’re also committed to giving back to our community. Our GIVE team supports charitable organizations through donations and volunteer work around the country. Some of our teams have joined together to support GuteTat.de, Summer Party Charity Market and Christmas Tombola. Our GREEN team helps organize and implement environmentally friendly programs on the PayPal campus.
