Editor’s Note: Bryan Johnson recently contributed this article to Tech Cocktail: Sometimes Boring Problems Present Great Opportunities.

Chicago based credit card processing company Braintree has an impressive roster of customers – 37signals, Airbnb, github, OpenTable, and more. And that’s with a team of under 20 people.

That’s not why I interviewed CEO Bryan Johnson though. I wanted to learn why their company culture is so unique, why he doesn’t hire traditional managers, and why he’s so adamant about hiring rock star employees. Watch the video below to learn why.
