    Every time you pay for an Uber ride or book on Airbnb, you’re using our product. Braintree lets you move money from one place to another safely and securely. It sounds complex (and it is), but we make it so simple, you wouldn't know we were there.

    At Braintree, opportunities to shine happen daily. Here are the builders that create the seamless experiences you see and use everyday. Our engineers, managers, developers, and designers invent and initiate. Seeing potential in every challenge is more than exciting, it's crucial. We help thousands of businesses with product solutions that keep their livelihood safe, scalable, and easy to use.

    Take a look at how we work:

    The Team:

    Our focus is teaming with smart engineers who are passionate about their craft and excited to build software for our unique solutions in the space.

    At Braintree, developers have the chance to work on various teams and stacks. Although most of our software is written in Ruby, we believe in using the best tool for the job. For example, we’ve written data platforms in Clojure, payment gateways in Java, and contextual commerce in Python. Here’s more:

    Communication is key to our process, and we don't want to hinder it with walls. Many teams program in pairs, which means you always have another set of eyes to help you.

    We practice test-driven development and believe that it helps us deliver simple solutions focused on real customer needs. We have no QA department – developers test, release and monitor their own code.

    We keep the team in sync with daily stand-ups and have regular retrospectives to discuss things that are going well and opportunities for improvements.

    We value unique perspectives brought by diverse backgrounds and experiences. A broad range of ideas and perspectives help us to create the best possible product.
