Backend / API Engineer, Merchant Reporting Platform

Seattle. Remote in North America only

Full time

Merchant intelligence

Stripe’s onboarding flows collect and store millions of sensitive Know-Your-Customer (KYC) data points from founders and business owners around the globe. The Merchant Reporting Platform team’s goal is to develop and operate a platform and product that lets partners and customers easily, yet securely, access this information – helping fulfill reporting requirements and improve their bottom line.

We’re hiring a backend engineer to support the Merchant Reporting Platform on its transformation from a back-office support system to a world-class KYC reporting product. The team responsibilities include: 

  • Evolving and maintaining the platform that powers KYC reporting to Stripe’s financial partners
  • Working closely with the Onboarding, Policy, Risk, Financial Crimes, and Partnership teams to ensure reporting requirements don’t get in the way of a delightful onboarding experience
  • Designing, prototyping, and building a novel KYC reporting product 

You will:

  • Design, build, and maintain reliable and secure systems that process our users’ most sensitive data
  • Help define, scope, and launch a greenfield product
  • Work closely with engineers and other stakeholders on the Onboarding, Policy, Risk, Financial Crimes, and Partnership teams
  • Improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • Have at least five years of software engineering experience
  • Enjoy and have experience building scalable backend and data infrastructure
  • Think about systems and services and write high-quality code. We work mostly in Java, with some Ruby and Scala. However, languages can be learned: we care much more about your general engineering skill than knowledge of a particular language or framework
  • A true passion for user experience, as evidenced by an obsessive user focus, as well as an ability to render complexity down to its truest essence
  • A desire to design and build a greenfield product in collaboration with some of our most demanding and discerning customers

At Stripe, we're looking for people with passion, grit, and integrity. You're encouraged to apply even if your experience doesn't precisely match the job description. Your skills and passion will stand out—and set you apart—especially if your career has taken some extraordinary twists and turns. At Stripe, we welcome diverse perspectives and people who think rigorously and aren't afraid to challenge assumptions. Join us.
