Here at Venmo, we’re building a platform that simplifies how people and businesses exchange money. We recognize that payments enable social interactions and life experiences, and we’ve created a highly active network that captures the story behind each payment.
Our product teams are working in tandem with Braintree, our parent company, to bring an amazing consumer experience to the thousands of merchants already utilizing their robust processing infrastructure. Notable Braintree clients like Uber, Airbnb, and Github are currently contributing to over $8B in payment processing per year.
