James Barrese

Former Chief Technology Officer and Senior Vice President, Payment Services, PayPal

With more than 25 years of technology experience that spans the military, academic world, business consulting, payments, and enterprise platforms and infrastructure, PayPal’s James Barrese lead the company’s efforts to transform the payments industry with secure, innovative solutions for consumers and businesses. 

In 2001, James joined eBay and led a number of strategic technology initiatives, including serving as the vice president in charge of delivering the open platforms, creating infrastructure services, systems software, analytics and site operations running the world’s largest marketplace at scale.

In 2011, James moved over to PayPal, first as vice president of global product development and, beginning in 2012, as chief technology officer. In 2015, he expanded his role to also lead the Payment Services business in PayPal, a global team that powers the efficient movement of money and rewards into, out of, and within the PayPal network. With a mobile-first approach and commitment to creating customer experiences that make things simpler and easier, James and his team drove PayPal’s overall technology strategy, building a next-generation global infrastructure, data platforms and secure, flexible and reliable systems that deliver innovation that meets – and exceeds – customers’ ever-evolving payment needs.

He is a board member of Marin Software and The Tech Museum of Innovation. James is also a member of the Technical Advisory Council for Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, and serves on a digital advisory board for VimpelCom, one of the world's largest integrated telecommunications services operators.
