About Us:


Braintree a PayPal service lets you move money from one place to another safely and securely. Every time you pay for an Uber ride, book a stay through Airbnb, or pay with PayPal when you check out online, you’re probably using our product. It sounds complex (and it is), but we make it so simple you can’t tell we’re there.
We solve world-scale problems and provide opportunities to match. We build diverse teams that recognize our strengths and allow us to work on our weaknesses. You bring skills and a relentless focus on the customer, and we'll provide the support you need to do the best work of your life.

The Engineering Team:


Our focus is teaming with smart engineers who are passionate about their craft and excited to build software for our unique solutions in the space.
At Braintree, developers have the chance to work on various teams and stacks. Although most of our software is written in Ruby, we believe in using the best tool for the job. For example, we’ve written data platforms in Clojure, payment gateways in Java, and contextual commerce in Python.

Here’s more:

  • Communication is key to our process, and we don't want to hinder it with walls. Many teams program in pairs, which means you always have another set of eyes to help you.



  • We practice test-driven development and believe that it helps us deliver simple solutions focused on real customer needs. We have no QA department – developers test, release and monitor their own code.



  • We keep the team in sync with daily stand-ups and have regular retrospectives to discuss things that are going well and opportunities for improvements.


  • We value unique perspectives brought by diverse backgrounds and experiences. A broad range of ideas and perspectives help us to create the best possible product.



Responsibilities:



  • Design, build, and maintain efficient, reusable, and reliable Ruby/Java applications

  • Evaluate and track application performance, metrics, and availability

  • Monitor data center hardware, networking, and software platforms

  • Build and maintain alerting tools and metrics

  • React to system inefficiencies and resolve issues quickly to ensure system availability and performance

  • Coordinate engineering, customer support, and external communications

  • Integration of data storage solutions

  • Mentor junior engineers in the team



Requirements:



  • 5+ years experience building software or web applications with object oriented or functional programming languages

  • Basic understanding of front-end technologies, such as JavaScript, HTML5, and CSS3

  • Understanding of fundamental design principles behind a scalable application

  • Ability and desire to work in our collaborative environment: open team room, pair programming and fluid interactions with all products and operations teams.

  • Interest in TDD and specific experiences using a test heavy approach to solve problems and create solutions.

  • Focus on building solutions utilizing an agile approach: close relationships with Product Managers, communicating and digesting real time feedback, and working smart to build story cards on daily basis.

  • A knack for writing clean, readable code

  • Knowledge of Linux internals and command-line tools

  • Troubleshooting experience tracking down performance, load, networking, I/O utilization, and memory problems

  • Experience with monitoring and metrics tools - Nagios, Graphite, New Relic, etc.


Perks:



  • We champion your financial, physical, and mental health by offering valuable benefits and resources to help you care for the whole you

  • We have great benefits including a flexible work environment, employee shares options, health and life insurance and more

  • Open dev days: every two weeks we spend a day working on projects that interest us and help us expand our skills and knowledge

  • Participation in the technology community: we help cover travel and attendance costs for conferences, and we offer opportunities and tools for speaking
