David Sacks PayPal Resume


This may be the most perfect resume line-item of all time: David Sacks’ description of his position and accomplishments while at PayPal:


(Public Company; 5001-10,000 employees; ebay; Internet industry)

1999 – 2002 (3 years)

As Chief Operating Officer, I was PayPal’s product leader, managed 700 employees, and built many of our key teams.

I was responsible for product management and design, sales and marketing, business development, international, customer service, fraud operations, and human resources functions at PayPal.

During my tenure, we grew payment volume from $0 to $500 million/month and revenue from $0 to $240 million/year. We beat eBay on its own platform, winning the auction payments space. We became the world’s #1 financial website, from nothing. We introduced business accounts and made our users pay. We expanded into multiple currencies and over 80 countries. Finally, we successfully IPO’d and became a public company, before ultimately selling to eBay for $1.5 billion.

Years later and Sacks’ resume has only gotten better. From the founding and selling Yammer for a billion, to turning around Zenefits and his work as a VC.
