Hi, I’m Brent Fitzgerald. You’ve found my little corner of the web. You can learn about me here. Feel free to also drop me a note.
I recently decided to take a break to work on new ideas. I’ve been thinking about:
- Tools for new commerce patterns
- Ethical credit / fintech
- New ways of communicating and coordinating
- Happy and effective teams
- Becoming a better writer and thinker
- Helping my friends and teammates
Brief professional bio
For the past 9 years I’ve worked on payments, with a focus on mobile and developer products, new commerce behaviors, extensible platforms, and forward-looking use cases. Whenever you pay for something on the web or in a mobile app, there’s a good chance you’re using code I helped make happen.
Most recently, I have worked with Braintree as an engineer, manager, and leader. I was previously the first hire at card.io. We were acquired by PayPal. In the more distant past, I founded an experimental technology design company, worked at a few startups, and built art economies and programmatic contracts at the MIT Media Lab.
