Braintree employs a flat management structure that includes just a few explicit managers—but focuses on employees and teams that are largely amorphous. This allows the Braintree team to be made up of individuals who have learned a bit about everything—so when it comes to crisis time, problems can be pinpointed quickly and fixed with innovative and robust solutions.
Founded in 2007 in a small office in Chicago, Braintree has grown to three offices and five different cities around the world. Braintree works to help its clients accept a number of different methods of online payment—making it easier for merchants to expand their businesses. Braintree’s list of clients includes major companies such as Airbnb, LivingSocial, and GitHub.
