PowerToFly Had Fun in the Windy City with Braintree's Women Tech Leaders
Two members of the PowerToFly team that are based in the greater Chicago area, Senior Account Executive Anastasia Rab and Talent Advocate Oriana Kachaochana, traveled to the Windy City to host an insightful evening with Braintree, a Chicago-based division of PayPal, that specializes in mobile and web payment systems for e-commerce companies including Uber and Airbnb.
The stacked (and impressive!) bill of Braintree speakers who were available to answer audience questions and make connections included:
Merchants in more than 40 countries worldwide can accept, split, and enable payments in more than 130 currencies using Braintree. Their amazing list of clients includes OpenTable, StubHub, Casper, and TaskRabbit.
Also, Braintree is hiring! Their competitive benefits include daily catered lunches, Open Dev Days, a brand new MacBook, tuition reimbursement, a subsidized child care program, transgender health benefits, an employee stock purchase program and unlimited PTO.
