SHARE Braintree’s office was neat even before eBay dropped $800M on it

Credit card software company Braintree was just a sapling when it began in Chicago in 2007. Two years ago, it was named Inc.’s 47th fastest-growing private company nationwide. Needless to say, the company needed a bigger place to spread its branches even before it was acquired by eBay for $800 million last month. Partners by Design designed the 26,350-square-foot headquarters at 111 N. Canal St., and Braintree moved in May of last year. Takumi Matsuzawa, Braintree VP of operations, showed us around.
