Sales and Accounts Intern

About Braintree:

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 ride share—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.

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!

About Us:

Our North American Sales Team creates meaningful interactions with our merchants and finds ways to be perpetually one step ahead of their needs. We deliver the optimal merchant experience by providing guidance and insight into payments, processing, and products.

The Sales and Account Management teams serve as the face of Braintree to our merchants, and as such requires dynamic individuals with impeccable written and verbal communication skills, a track record of successful project execution, and an unnatural love for analyzing data and solving problems - all while being consultative and entrepreneurial in approach.

About this internship:

This 10 week internship will take place in either our Chicago or San Francisco office where you will be a part of our Sales Organization. Throughout the 10 weeks, you will be immersed in the world of payments and have visibility into the many facets of our team, as well as other teams that we work with cross-functionally across the organization. You will contribute to important team initiatives across Account Management, Sales Enablement, and Sales Strategy while also having the opportunity to job shadow in different areas across the company. As an intern, you will be an important part of Braintree and will be integral in delivering on key project deadlines.  

We are looking for...

  • A self-starter with an interest in sales strategy, communications, analytics, and relationship-building
  • A team player: our work is highly collaborative so you should be too
  • Someone with a proven track record of self-directed learning (you know some stuff because you taught yourself...not just because it was assigned as homework)
  • Fierce work ethic and curiosity. Someone who is not afraid to ask questions.
  • A track record of strong academic performance (3.20+ GPA) in relevant course work (make sure to include your current GPA in your application)
  • Undergraduate juniors or seniors

If interested…

Please submit a cover letter along with your resume/CV. Your cover letter should express your interest both in Braintree as well as in Account Management, specifically.
