Mission: To enable beautiful commerce experiences so that people and ideas can flourish
Every time you pay for an Uber or book on Airbnb, you're using our product. Braintree creates products that make payments easier -- so easy that they fade into the background, making entirely new kinds of interactions possible.
At Braintree, opportunities to shine happen daily. We value what makes you you, and encourage you to act on your ideas -- no matter how pie-in-the-sky. You bring skills and a customer-first mentality, and we'll bring the tools and environment you need to do your best work.
Headquartered in Chicago, Braintree has offices in San Francisco, New York City, Austin, Sydney, and London, with employees stationed around the world.
As our industry finds itself at the center of the conversation about workplace diversity, we must shine a light down our own halls and ensure we’re being reflective of the people who use the products we build.
With this call to self-awareness comes a responsibility to continually make things better than they are. We’re on the hook now. We acknowledge that we have room to grow, and we push ourselves to reach out and actively elevate those who might otherwise be suppressed. We do this through the events we host, the education we support, and the jobs we offer—in the hope that the change we bring about today will ripple through the larger community.

I have been working at Braintree full-time (Less than a year)
This is the best job I've ever had. As a software developer who has been worked into the ground at other companies I feel like Braintree has all it's priorities in order.
As an engineer here is what I appreciate:
1. We're a product company who's mission is customer success. When you, as a engineer, are arguing with your peers about what the best outcome for your customers is - you know you're working at the right place.
2. The company has large technical scaling issues. It's hard to get these problems other places and they are tough and exciting to work on.
3. Mentorship is available at almost every level; there are some very very smart people here.
4. Opinions and criticism are welcome and encouraged.
5. Automated testing is baked into the culture
Like any company growing this fast there are problems with internal communication.
Advice to Management
You've got a very good thing going here and it will be tough to scale but please try! This is a special company with a special culture and I really want to see us succeed. I've already referred multiple friends because they are so impressed with BT after hearing about it.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Braintree (Chicago, IL).
It was a really positive experience for me overall. The process was extremely efficient from the recruiter initially reaching out to me all the way to the offer stage and I was always kept in the loop. Really appreciated how responsive the recruiter was. The interviews were pretty thorough and not terribly long.
In terms of the steps - Initial conversation with recruiter > Hour-long interview with hiring manager over video > Onsite interview which focused primarily on architecture & management/leadership skills.
