"Terrific partner that has been instrumental in helping us scale from an MVP to series A"
Very well-vetted, high-quality candidates, ensure that I don't waste time interviewing unqualified people. They also make payroll a breeze and allow us to offer competitive benefits packages and provide hardware to our employees. They help find solutions that work for you rather than just making up the numbers and building a funnel.

Tips for Hiring PayPal developers

PayPal is an international financial institution that has been around since 1998 and has become a leader in online payment systems. PayPal is an electronic alternative to traditional payment methods, such as checks and money orders, allowing individuals to transfer and receive money online. Since its introduction, PayPal has introduced developers to REST API services that enable them to work within transaction workflows, including subscriptions, invoicing, orders, payments, and disputes. With the PayPal developer platform, developers can create standard checkouts, advanced checkouts, and subscription-based services for their clients. Companies, specifically e-commerce businesses, looking to develop checkouts and subscription services can benefit from hiring PayPal developers with the experience and knowledge necessary to create these offerings.

Finding and hiring PayPal developers can pose some unique challenges. Some may struggle to find talent for their project, especially if they limit themselves to looking for local PayPal experts. Another issue many face is understanding the cost of hiring a PayPal developer.

This article will explore what you can expect from a PayPal specialist, how to write an attractive job description, and what interview questions to ask to attract and hire top talent.

What Is PayPal Development?

PayPal development involves creating checkouts and subscription services for businesses. Developers can create one of three services:

  • Standard checkout: Standard checkout payments allow businesses to present payment buttons on their websites and mobile applications that prompt customers to pay through various payment methods, such as PayPal, debit and credit cards, Pay Later options, Venmo, and more.
  • Advanced checkout: Advanced checkout payments are similar to standard checkouts but provide developers and businesses more flexibility in customizing their fields to match their brands. Advanced checkouts provide a checkout flow page that includes the shopping cart items, total cost, shipping address, and payment method, usually in a PayPal button or credit or debit card form.
  • Subscription-based services: Developers can create various subscription-based services tailored to their client's needs. This can include creating different volumes and tiers, creating fixed plans that process payments at regular intervals, and automating payment recovery for failed payments.

PayPal development uses JavaScript SDK to display payment buttons. It also requires reading the GitHub repo and installing various dependencies and environment variables before it can work. PayPal development is best used in e-commerce and software-as-a-service businesses.

What Does a PayPal Developer Do?

PayPal developers work alongside businesses to create payment methods and plans for consumers. They work within the PayPal developer platform, using tools and services such as JavaScript SDK, REST API, GitHub depositories, PayPal business accounts, and more.  Other daily operations include:

  • Upgrading and integrating new payment methods with existing systems
  • Installing dependencies and environment variables
  • Modifying and customizing code to create a more personalized style
  • Creating and implementing payment buttons and checkout pages
  • Making subscription-based plans that cater to a broad audience by providing several options that fit different budgets
  • Testing purchase buttons and subscription plans to ensure they work
  • Troubleshooting and debugging issues with payment buttons and subscription services

PayPal developers are also expected to follow these best practices:

  • Adding the PayPal button on all checkout pages
  • Allowing PayPal equal space and functionality alongside other options, such as buying online, pickup in-store, etc.
  • Ensuring that the process is simple and includes two steps or less to complete a payment
  • Leaving room on checkout pages for buttons to expand and drop-down if needed

PayPal Developer Salary

According to Glassdoor, mid-level PayPal developers with four to six years of experience in the U.S. make an average annual salary of $135,101. Salaries depend on location, project size, and a developer’s education and experience.

While PayPal developers in Latin American countries are equally skilled, the lower cost of living means they usually earn 30% to 50% less than their U.S. counterparts, with salaries varying based on location and experience. Revelo provides a cost-effective solution while offering highly qualified, pre-vetted Latin American developers.

How to Write a Job Description for PayPal Developers

When writing a job description, tailor it to the specific level of developer you need. For example, senior-level developers have more skills and experience than junior-level developers. Crafting the perfect job description can help you attract the best talent. Start with the job title and working hours, then include the following information:

  • Required qualifications/experience/education: PayPal developers should have experience within the PayPal platform, in JavaScript, and with REST APIs. In addition, look for developers with a background and education in computer science or another related field or relevant industry experience.
  • Desired skills and traits: Since PayPal developers will work closely with other teams to implement checkout features, they must have excellent written and verbal communication skills. List any other important qualities you want your developer to have.
  • Job responsibilities: Outline all responsibilities to clarify what your PayPal developer will do in their daily operations. These could include writing code in JavaScript and troubleshooting issues.
  • Benefits: Highlight your company's benefits, such as pension plans, flexible working hours, and paid sick leave. The more attractive your benefits package, the more appealing your company will be to prospective hires.

Interview Questions for PayPal Developers

The interviewing process can seem overwhelming, but preparing the interview questions beforehand can help. Compile a list of questions to determine a candidate’s educational background, work history, and ethics. You’ll also want to test their technical aptitude, creativity, and ability to solve problems and think on their feet.

What is your background in JavaScript SDK?

Since PayPal development centers around JavaScript SDK, asking this question can help you weed out the inexperienced from the experienced. Candidates should have a strong background in the JavaScript environment, including JavaScript's software development kit (SDK).

What is cryptography, and what is its role in blockchain development?

Ask this question to gauge a candidate’s experience and familiarity with the blockchain industry. Since PayPal developers work in blockchain development, experienced candidates should have no problem answering this question.

Cryptography is the ability to safeguard user identities and transactions using a hash function and public and private keys which encrypt and decrypt important data. Candidates should be able to further explain how this works.

What are the best practices you should follow as a PayPal developer?

PayPal developers must know and adhere to the best practices to ensure their payment methods meet industry standards. Candidates should be able to list the best practices, explain what they are, and give examples of how they can help.
