Online payment solutions leader PayPal officially inaugurated its operations site in Alabang, Muntinlupa City on Wednesday and is looking to hire 1,000 more workers for the company’s largest and first consolidated operations site in the country.
PayPal has now hired over 700 people for this new office and the additional 1,000 employees would be enlisted by the end of 2020 to fill key roles in customer support, voice and non-voice processes, and risk management to cater to English-speaking customers worldwide. Initially, the company aimed for 1,000 hires through 2021, but with growing needs for key business functions and a large pool of available local talent, this target has since been increased.
The company’s decision to setup its global operations center in Alabang reinforces the country’s reputation as a hotbed for talent.
“Filipinos are renowned not only for their outstanding command of the English language, but also for their customer service expertise, as well as their resourcefulness, hard work, and openness to new experiences. At PayPal, we embrace passion and diversity as part of our culture, and Filipino talents make for the perfect fit when it comes to the values we strive for as a global company,” said John Nicholls, the Country Lead and Senior Director of PayPal Global Customer Services.
