"From time to time, we conduct small-scale restructuring efforts to align teams to support key business priorities ... to continually enhance the way we operate," he said.

PayPal declines to specify current employment levels at its European services hub in Dublin or its Dundalk unit. PayPal's most recent filing with Irish authorities put total 2017 jobs at 2,443.

PayPal has stressed it plans to keep investing here.

It lists 54 open positions here - 40 in Dublin, 14 in Dundalk - ranging from director of EMEA employment legal affairs to seven posts requiring fluency in German, others in French, Russian and Dutch.
