About Us:

Braintree lets you move money from one place to another safely and securely. Every time you pay for an Uber ride, book a stay through Airbnb, or pay with PayPal when you check out online, you’re probably using our product. It sounds complex (and it is), but we make it so simple you can’t tell we’re there.

We solve world-scale problems and provide opportunities to match. We build diverse teams that recognize our strengths and allow us to work on our weaknesses. You bring skills and a relentless focus on the customer, and we'll provide the support you need to do the best work of your life.

Payments Engineering:

Braintree's Payments product organization provides best-in-class processing and funding experiences for our merchants. These teams design, build, and perfect integrations to process transactions, move money, protect their transactions from fraudulent activity, and also collaborate closely with our operational teams on tooling and automation to scale our white glove service.

The Role:

As a senior Engineering Lead in the Payments organization, you will drive execution and delivery across the product teams that process, protect and fund our merchants’ transactions. You will help us hire diverse and talented people, support the self-development and career growth of team members, and foster an inclusive and collaborative environment in which people do their best work.

You will need proficiency and deftness in tackling technical, organizational, and human challenges to grow strong teams that deliver complex payment products.

  • Led hiring for one or more of your teams, ensuring quality and diversity in the process.

What we look for in you:

  • Exceptional written and verbal communication.
  • Deep curiosity about people and systems.
  • Empathy and emotional intelligence.
  • Significant experience writing and deploying high quality production software.
  • Experience leading a team of managers and technical leads.
  • Ability to deliver constructive feedback that leads to meaningful changes and growth.
  • Analytical skills for creating and interpreting metrics.
