Brent Fitzgerald

I am a programmer and technical product generalist based in Oakland, CA.

For the past 5+ years I’ve worked on payments, 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 three years with Braintree as an engineer, team manager, and most recently an organization manager. I am currently manager and lead of our Ecosystem org. I help teams that are building new classes of technical payments products. I also focus on hiring and assessment, peer coaching, and fostering a positive and collaborative product and engineering culture.

I was the first hire at 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.
