Operations Data Internship
Braintree builds products that make payments easier—so easy that they fade into the background, making entirely new kinds of interactions possible. Interactions like seamlessly paying for your rideshare -- or the condo you rented this weekend -- without presenting a card or pressing a button, or buying a lamp on Pinterest...right from Pinterest. The Braintree full-stack payment platform lets companies build their own experiences and then scale their businesses around the globe. We're known for our technology but we're also known for our support, with internal risk and underwriting, account management and technical support teams who ensure a frictionless payments experience.
Acquired by PayPal in 2013, Braintree is now in an even greater position to change the way people pay. Headquartered in Chicago, Braintree has offices in San Francisco, New York, Sydney, London with employees stationed around the world.
About this internship:
This 10 week summer internship will take place in our Chicago office. You will be a part of our Support team which acts as the front-line helping merchants navigate our products, integrate with our technology, and problem-solve a wide range of technical issues. Our Support team isn’t your average call center team: they are highly motivated, technically proficient, and stakeholders in company initiatives -- we’d expect you to be as well. Day-to-day, you’ll be helping the team by diving into untapped data, telling its story, and helping leaders utilize findings by making them digestible.
