Who we are

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

Driven by our Users First operating principle, Stripe has a weighty obligation to the businesses built on Stripe as well as their customers to manage user data with integrity, trust, and transparency. Privacy Products is focused on building trust with our users and their customers with respect to their data.

What you’ll do

As a member of Privacy Products, you’ll build products and systems that provide transparency and control to our users around Stripe’s data privacy practices. Our offerings include self-service tools for users to access their data, systems to identify and delete expired account data at scale, and APIs for users to comply with global privacy requirements. 


  • Design, build, and operate products (e.g., web applications, APIs) as well as internal privacy frameworks used by all of Stripe’s engineering teams, for example to delete expired account data
  • Improve engineering standards and processes 
  • Make impactful decisions about systems, productivity, security and privacy — their edge cases, failure modes and tradeoffs
  • Collaborate closely with other engineering teams and cross-functionally with legal, product, compliance and operations teams to embed best practices for data protection into how products and infrastructure are built

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

  • 2+ years software engineering experience building business critical systems and products
  • Empathy, strong communication skills, and a deep respect for the power of collaboration
  • Working knowledge of a variety of data store technologies (e.g. relational databases, NoSQL, unstructured)
  • The ability to drive clear next steps when encountering ambiguity without clear lines of ownership 

Preferred qualifications

  • Full-stack experience
  • Experience integrating with SaaS products and data stores
  • Privacy and/or security experience

Hybrid work at Stripe

Office-assigned Stripes spend at least 50% of the time in a given month in their local office or with users. This hits a balance between bringing people together for in-person collaboration and learning from each other, while supporting flexibility about how to do this in a way that makes sense for individuals and their teams.

Pay and benefits

The annual US base salary range for this role is $150,500 - $225,700. For sales roles, the range provided is the role’s On Target Earnings ("OTE") range, meaning that the range includes both the sales commissions/sales bonuses target and annual base salary for the role. This salary range may be inclusive of several career levels at Stripe and will be narrowed during the interview process based on a number of factors, including the candidate’s experience, qualifications, and location. Applicants interested in this role and who are not located in the US may request the annual salary range for their location during the interview process.

Additional benefits for this role may include: equity, company bonus or sales commissions/bonuses; 401(k) plan; medical, dental, and vision benefits; and wellness stipends.
