Technical Recruiter

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. 

We’re looking for a recruiting leader with previous experience in and around the San Francisco - Bay Area. The ideal candidate is someone who understands the competitive nature of this market and knows how to build a pipeline from scratch. Venmo and Braintree are talent-driven companies seeking to revolutionize the world’s interaction with payments and we want a recruiter ready to jump in and tell that story to our awesome candidates. 


  • Execute recruiting strategies and hit weekly/monthly/quarterly recruiting metrics.

  • Manage candidate process and be a candidate ambassador. Determine skill level, manage offer process, including offer negotiation, offer letter generation and offer acceptance/declines.
