Company creates IT jobs in Chicago

Posted on August 25, 2012

Braintree, a payments platform for online and mobile commerce, said this week it will be hiring for IT jobs in Chicago.

The company is rapidly expanding and opening a new Chicago office and a Silicon Valley office.

The offices will be host to the company’s expanding employee roster.

“Braintree’s full-stack payment platform was designed specifically to make payment integration easy for developers. Because of this we’re attracting the nation’s top developers to work with us, enabling Braintree to continue to deliver solutions that ease developer pain points.” Last month, Braintree relocated its headquarters to Chicago’s West Loop, part of the city’s central business district community. More than three times the size of Braintree’s former office space, the newly renovated Chicago headquarters will provide Braintree’s growing team an expanded and more central environment. The company currently has over 60 employees, with plans to expand to more than 100 employees by the end of 2012. Braintree is recruiting tech talent from both the Chicago and Silicon Valley area.

“We’re staffing up quickly to meet the exploding market demand for our online and mobile payments tools,” said Bill Ready, CEO of Braintree. “Braintree’s full-stack payment platform was designed specifically to make payment integration easy for developers. Because of this we’re attracting the nation’s top developers to work with us, enabling Braintree to continue to deliver solutions that ease developer pain points.”

“We wanted to have an on-the-ground engineering presence in Silicon Valley to be close by many of our fastest growing clients,” said Ready. “A number of our best product innovations have come in collaboration with our clients, many of which are in the Valley and among the hottest high-growth startups in the ecommerce and mobile space. Being in Silicon Valley will further strengthen the great feedback loop we have with our clients.”

The office will provide access to the entrepreneurial landscape of the Valley, allowing the company to better serve its clients and recruit talent while supporting innovation occurring across the region.
