Brent Fitzgerald

I am a programmer and technology manager based in Oakland, CA.

For the past five years I’ve worked on payment technology, with a focus on mobile and developer products. If you’ve ever paid for something in an app, chances are pretty good that you used my work.

I have spent the last two years with Braintree. As the engineering lead of the developer experience team, I help plan, design, and build software that programmers use to accept payments in mobile or web apps.

Previously I was the first hire at, and we were acquired by PayPal. In the more distant past, I founded an experimental technology design company, worked at some startups, and studied at the MIT Media Lab.
