Your way to impact

The Payment Experiences team is the product owner of Pay with Venmo, Pay with PayPal, and Digital Wallets (Apple Pay, Google Pay) for Braintree merchants. We build backend APIs that many of the largest and most familiar companies are depending on to keep their payments running smoothly.

Your day to day

  • Flex your object-oriented & data modelling skills to design systems
  • Pair program to build new products, solve problems, and learn from others
  • Be in an agile environment that prioritizes interaction and collaboration with other teams to solve together
  • Write effective unit tests with rspec

What do you need to bring-

We're looking for engineers who care about building lean and maintainable code at scale, are effective at technical communication, work well with others (we pair program!), and enjoy the beauty of a well-written unit test suite.

  • You know how to write highly scalable and distributed Ruby on Rails services, or have a strong grasp of another object-oriented language and are willing to learn
  • You understand how to work with relational databases and are comfortable with SQL
  • You prefer to work in an agile environment, and are open to pair programming
