What does your application process look like?
Each job has a slightly different application process, depending on the role or department. While some of our roles follow a very uniform interviewing process, it’s hard to say exactly what the process will look like for each role beyond saying that there will be an initial application screen, a chat with one of our recruiters, and an onsite interview. Be sure to ask your recruiter about the interview process.
How long does it take to get back to me about next steps after I submit my application through the careers page?
We’d love to give you a specific timeline on this, but the truth is, we can’t. Timing depends on the level of urgency for filling the position as well as the volume of applications we receive. What we can promise you is this: no matter what, you will hear back from us with a decision regarding your application.
Can I re-apply?
Absolutely! We recommend checking back six months after your initial application if you’re applying to the same role.
What if I want to be considered for more than one position at the same time?
You can apply to as many positions as you like at the same time. We’ll be able to track your progress in all applications, and having applied to more than one role won’t hurt your chances in any of the roles you’ve applied to.
How long does it take to receive a decision following an onsite interview?
We do our best to get back to you within a week of your onsite interview. Please connect with your recruiter if you’ve not received an update by that time.
Do you support remote workers?
It depends on the team and role. The job description will typically have the desired location listed.
How should I prepare for an interview at Venmo?
We encourage you to check out our website as a way to get to know how Venmo works. You’ll also want to check out our Team to learn more about the people who work here.
What should I wear to my interview?
We’re a casual office environment, so whatever’s comfortable for you. We certainly aren’t assessing you based on what you wear, and we know that comfort when it comes to professional presentation is subjective.
Are your offices wheelchair accessible?
All our offices are wheelchair accessible. In New York, West 4 St is the closest accessible stop. In San Francisco, we’re right around the corner from the 2nd and King MUNI stop. In Chicago, the Brown and Purple Lines will drop you off right in the building.
I am currently breastfeeding and may need a break in my interview to pump. Do you have facilities I can use?
Yes -- we can get you set up in our Mother’s Room. Please let us know how much time you’ll need and we’ll build a break into your interview schedule.
Do you have gender neutral restrooms on-site?
In New York, we have a gender neutral single restroom on the 1st floor. In San Francisco, we have a single-stall restroom. In Chicago, we have both a multi-stall all-gender restroom and a single-stall restroom.
How can I be sure that the interviewing team is aware of my pronouns?
Please let us know your pronouns as soon as you feel comfortable in the process and we’ll make sure the team’s aware. You can do this either as part of your initial application or when a recruiter reaches out to schedule time to chat with you -- whatever’s the most comfortable for you.
My gender identity changed prior to applying to Venmo. How might this affect reference checks?
Most of our jobs don’t involve a reference check, but we may reach out to former employers at a manager’s discretion. We’ll let you know if we’re reaching out and be sure to check with you about how you’d like to be referred to during these conversations. If we offer you a job, there will be a background check. If you were employed under a different legal name, we can help you navigate that situation.
I have feedback about the interview process, who can I talk to?
For all candidates who come onsite, our application system automatically sends out an anonymous survey about our process that you can fill out. Our team takes that feedback seriously and so we appreciate any thoughts you might want to share with us.
What is your relationship to PayPal, Braintree, etc.?
Venmo was acquired by Braintree in 2012 and then Braintree was acquired by PayPal in 2013, becoming two of many brands under the larger umbrella. By virtue of our individual roadmaps and initiatives, we often operate separately. But we do all play for the same team and, depending on department, frequently team up with coworkers across the organization -- PayPal, Braintree, Xoom, Synchrony, Paydiant, Swift, etc.
I have a question or an accommodation request not mentioned in the FAQ -- how should I go about addressing that?
Please let your recruiter know as soon as you feel comfortable and they will make accommodations to set you up for success when you come onsite to interview.
