At PayPal, we are re-thinking how to provide diverse solutions to real-world challenges. Through the Recharge program, we encourage skilled women technologists who have taken a career break for personal or family reasons to feel equipped to return to the work force. During the program, they work on real technical projects and provide solutions, while learning from leaders throughout PayPal about everything from work/life balance to résumé and cover letter writing. When participants complete the Recharge program, they have learned skills that are competitive with the current market, and similar to an internship, will be considered for hire as employees at the conclusion of the program.

Increasing the number of women in PayPal’s development teams serves our mission of driving diversity and inclusion, and leads to vital insights and perspectives that better serve the needs of customers worldwide. We want Recharge to ignite a culture change in both PayPal and the tech industry at large, by erasing the stigma that comes from a career break, and by inspiring a thoughtful consideration of a healthy work/life balance.

PayPal has an ongoing commitment to build a strong and diverse organization as well as support and encourage women to pursue technical careers.

“At PayPal, I can manage a very good work/life balance… there’s a culture within the company that promotes it.” – Sashi Dokania
