Here’s where you come in…
We are looking for an exceptional designer to take our software to the

with a successful track record and customers and peers that would rave
about their work product.
We’re looking for somebody who has some experience with…
* Building a consistent identity across the web
* Organizing content into logical groups
* Designing systems where user interaction matters
Had you been with us last month, you would have…
* Designed and implemented a redesign of our merchant software
* Thought of interesting ways to present Braintree on the web
* Worked with our developers to overcome interface challenges
* Produced sponsorship materials for web and print
* Began reorganizing our documentation to streamline the experience
* Made sure any design performs well across operating systems and devices
* Created designs which considered progressive enhancement
* Received feedback from the rest of the company on your design
* Explained to the team why you made certain design decisions
Is this you? Please fill out the questionaire.  We also require a portfolio to be submitted in order to consider your candidacy.
Please DO NOT apply if:
You’d feel like a fish out of water without a well defined traditional corporate structure
You’d consider taking out the trash as being below you
You’re accustomed to using the phrase “it’s not part of my job description”
Please DO apply if:
You have the desired experience (this is not a learn on the job position)
You’re a doer – not a manager, a coordinator, or an idea person – but someone who loves to get stuff done, and done well
You are a “go to” person because you’re reliable, creative,
resourceful, a good decision maker, and generally one of the most
capable people your peers know
You’re accustomed to a small company environment including wearing many hats and managing way too many things at any given time
You’re articulate, persuasive, and tech savvy (this does not mean familiarity with Microsoft Office)
Your friends and former employers would gush about you and your awesomeness
A few things about us…
Our team is now 35 strong. Braintree was founded in 2007, and we’ve
grown faster than we ever thought possible. Our team is now over 30
strong and we frequently receive enthusiastic praise from our customers.
We profitably bootstrapped the business for four years and then
accepted a $34 million dollar investment from Accel in 2011. We are also
a Level 1 PCI DSS provider. We are very fortunate to count among our
customers some of the largest, most reputable, and fastest growing
merchants in the U.S. 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
