About Stripe

Stripe is a financial infrastructure platform for businesses. Millions of companies—from the world’s largest enterprises to the most ambitious startups—use Stripe to accept payments, grow their revenue, and accelerate new business opportunities. Our mission is to increase the GDP of the internet, and we have a staggering amount of work ahead. That means you have an unprecedented opportunity to put the global economy within everyone’s reach while doing the most important work of your career.

About the team

Stripe was founded to make it easier for developers to accept payments. We’ve solved a small part of that problem, but our ambition is to go much further. For businesses, it’s still too hard to collect payments in every language, currency, payment method, and tax system. Mobile is an area of important investment for Stripe, and our mobile SDKs are one of the primary touch points for app-centric businesses that use Stripe. Companies like Doordash, Instacart, GOAT, and Kickstarter all use Stripe to power an incredible diversity of experiences in their Android apps.

This role is critical, not only for the merchants that use Stripe for their mobile apps, but their users as well. We’re looking for engineers with a deep understanding of the Android platform to help define Stripe’s future role in mobile apps.

What you’ll do

Responsibilities

  • Design, build, and maintain Android SDKs in Kotlin

  • Work with engineers, product managers, designers, and stakeholders across the company to bring new features and products to Stripe’s mobile SDKs

  • Collaborate with Android developers who work on the Stripe mobile apps and Stripe Terminal to set best practices for Android development across the company

Who you are

We’re looking for someone who meets the minimum requirements to be considered for the role. If you meet these requirements, you are encouraged to apply. The preferred qualifications are a bonus, not a requirement.

Minimum requirements

  • Have a strong technical background, with 3+ years of experience in Android development. Ideally, you’ve had some experience building SDK products or contributing to open-source libraries, and you appreciate the art of API design

  • Listen well and internalize the best ideas from all over the organization while also setting a vision that others are excited to get behind

  • Prefer simple solutions and designs over complex ones, and have a good intuition for what is lasting and scalable

  • Thrive in a collaborative environment involving different stakeholders and subject matter experts

  • Can put yourself in the shoes of your users and be a steward of crafting great developer and consumer experiences
