We are cultivating a vibrant and diverse workforce

At PayPal, our mission is one that is inclusive and empowering by nature – to allow every person the ability to fully and equitably participate in the global economy.  We believe this mission starts from the inside, by building a global team of employees that respect and support each other, reflect the communities where we work and live and the diversity of the customers we serve. As we’ve grown to over 26,500 employees, representing more than 150 nationalities located in more than 30 countries, we remain committed to promoting inclusion around the world. We embrace a diverse workforce that includes people of different ethnic and cultural backgrounds, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, veteran status, abilities and those who bring diversity of thought, opinion, experience and leadership styles — and all other characteristics — that make people unique.

Our Employee Resource Groups

We’re committed to creating a fully inclusive environment for all PayPal employees. Our Employee Resource Groups are one way we help build community.

We are committed to equity

We’ve achieved 100% global gender pay equity and U.S. ethnic pay equity for five years in a row, and we remain committed to advancing equity at every level.

In October of 2018, we launched our Diverse Hiring initiative with the aim of bringing in external diverse talent at the Director+ level through the introduction of diverse candidate slates in the recruiting process. In 2019, 34% of our open positions were filled by externally sourced diverse candidates. In 2020, we expanded the Diverse Hiring Initiative to all roles.

We are committed to progress and transparency

As part of a larger commitment to advance racial equity, we recently committed $15 million to strengthen our internal diversity and inclusion programs to foster greater awareness, build equity and support recruiting, hiring and career advancement of Black and diverse employees. This also includes increased funding for our Employee Resource Groups as well as supporting our community partners through pro bono work and secondments by our employees.

Our diversity data is a critical measure for how we assess our performance in building a truly inclusive workforce throughout all parts of the company. We report on our diversity numbers in our Global Impact Report and regularly review best practices to ensure we provide transparent reporting and disclosures on our workforce demographics. Since 2015, we have made various improvements in diversity at PayPal:


increase in diverse workforce representation at VP+*

*Diverse workforce representation is defined as Global women and U.S. ethnically diverse men.


Increase in female tech roles globally


increase in U.S. ethnic diversity at Director +

Data shows increases from 2015 to 2020.
