Business Development Representative

About Us:

Braintree's class-leading technology does for payments what the smart phone did for cell phones. The world of payments is changing and the only way to stay ahead of the game is to embrace the best in new payments technologies, opening new revenue streams and enabling new partnerships. In the past, payments were simply a way to move money from A to B. Today, merchants can take advantage of Braintree's payments technology to not just collect payments, but to also increase their sales, streamline operations and shed technical debt.

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 spread around the world.

The best talent deserves the best perks. Join the Braintree Team and you’ll get catered lunches, tuition reimbursement, public transit commute reimbursement, and much more!
