Payments infrastructure

As a platform company powering businesses all over the world, Stripe processes payments, runs marketplaces, detects fraud, helps entrepreneurs start internet businesses from anywhere in the world, builds world-class developer-friendly APIs, and more. Stripe’s backend engineers work on the business logic for all of that. As a backend engineer, you will build and expand APIs and services and work with our partners to launch new markets and capabilities.

The new Card Present team within Payment Acceptance works on our most critical payment flows to ensure it’s as easy for businesses to accept in-person payments as the Stripe API has done for online payments, supporting Stripe’s rapidly expanding Stripe Terminal business. With Terminal, businesses can unlock in-person payments use cases that are right for their business model – whether it’s creating a superb retail experience, extending their website to a pop-up store, or enabling a mobile point-of-sale at their next event. Terminal is used by some of Stripe’s largest, fastest growing, and most innovative users.

Stripe’s core payment flows process hundreds of billions of dollars in card payments annually. Card Present transactions generate the need for new payment acceptance capabilities – ranging from new kinds of transaction information to features like offline processing – which you will design and implement, Your work will help expand the reach of Stripe’s global payments network while delivering best-in-class reliability and performance.
