Elliot Lee

Hey there! I’m Elliot, a hacker / developer / product manager in San Francisco.


Elliot is an engineer at Braintree. His foray into iOS app development started when he built the game Brain Tuner, which ranked #2 on the App Store and went on to be downloaded over 4 million times. Building on this success, he founded GreenGar to develop and release over 20 mobile apps for iOS and Android. Among these is Color Identifier, which appeared on Gizmodo, Wired, NPR, and The Atlantic. In total, his mobile apps have been downloaded over 14 million times. As a Computer Engineering & Computer Science student at the University of Southern California, Elliot completed internships with the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena and Google in Santa Monica. He graduated Magna Cum Laude before moving to Vietnam, where he established an office and development team in Ho Chi Minh City, and traveled as a digital nomad for a couple years. In 2013, Elliot settled in San Francisco, where he was a developer and product manager at Kraken until joining Braintree in January 2015. Follow him on Twitter: @intelliot.
