What we do…
We help businesses process credit card payments by providing a merchant
account, payment gateway, recurring billing and credit card storage.
The company is disrupting the payments industry by providing elegant
tools for developers coupled with white-glove support. We’re unlike
others in the industry; we think and do things differently and are
frequently told by our customers that we’re a breath of fresh air.
A few things about us…
We were founded in 2007, and are very fortunate to count among our
customers some of the largest, most reputable, and fastest growing
merchants in the U.S such as: LivingSocial, 37signals, OpenTable and
GitHub. Our team is now over 40 strong and the company is on track to
process more than $3 billion in credit card volume in 2011 from more
than 2,000 merchants. Braintree was profitably bootstrapped for four
years before accepting a $34 million investment from Accel Partners in
2011, and Braintree was ranked 47th in the 2011 Inc. 500. We’ve worked
unbelievably hard to deliver value and it’s paid off.
Our appealing work environment includes highly competent co-workers,
competitive pay, engaging work, casual dress, flexible schedule, full
health, vision and dental benefits, and 401k with employer match. We
have a dart board, foosball table, and bags (corn hole) in the office.
We work very hard and have a lot of fun. We thrive on doing things
better, more efficiently, and smarter. We are a flat organization. We
don’t have an employee hierarchy or official job titles (you choose your
own). We don’t have a vacation policy; we trust people to get their
work done and maintain a proper work life balance. We’re not looking for
people who want to move into management because we don’t have it.
We have unusually high expectations of our people. Here are a some characteristics that we value in each other:
1. Self management: both hands are firmly gripped on the steering wheel
2. Ownership: I’ve got it, you don’t need to think about it
3. Initiative: getting things done without the slightest nudge
4. Virtue: honesty, good deeds, kindness, and appreciation
5. Problem Solving: nothing that can’t be solved and improved
6. Team work: we before I
