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

The Brand Risk team develops processes, solutions, product controls and detection systems to ensure merchants and platforms integrity, and protect Stripe and our users from compliance and reputational risks. We collaborate with partners across Risk, Engineering, Product and Compliance to design and implement best-in-class risk strategy, and play a critical role in Stripe’s risk management efforts. 

What you’ll do

We are looking for an experienced risk management professional to join the group and help drive brand risk mitigation efforts. You will leverage data and work with technical teams to build solutions, set short and long term approaches to areas such as terms of service enforcement, merchants’ classification and product misuse, and enable new products and experiences.


  • Work in collaboration to design and drive brand risk strategy 
  • Build relationships and partner with stakeholders across Risk, Engineering, Ops and Data Science globally
  • Build expertise and deep know-how around Stripe’s policies, standards and requirements, as well as risk capabilities and tools
  • Leverage data and quantitative analysis to build optimal solutions, balancing risk and user experience

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

  • 8+ years professional experience in a related field, such as Risk, Compliance, or Trust & Safety, within a fast paced, high growth company
  • 8+ experience in a role with an emphasis on data analysis and/or a strong technical background. You have worked closely with engineers and data analysts to build systems, collect business requirements, and / or deliver insights
  • An analytical approach to decision-making. You are analytical, objective and skilled at using metrics to drive decisions, set goals, and evaluate performance
  • Experience communicating to all levels of management, including strong writing skills with experience writing strategy documents, one-page project updates, and whitepapers
  • Strong collaboration and relationship building skills, with an ability to influence stakeholders across organizations and borders
  • Demonstrated program management skills and a track record for building and scaling programs from the ground up

Preferred qualifications

  • Experience working in payments and / or tech industries
  • Experience in coding, ML algorithms / predictive modeling
  • PMP certification and/or Six Sigma certification

Hybrid work at Stripe

This role is available either in an office or a remote location (typically, 35+ miles or 56+ km from a Stripe office).

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.

A remote location, in most cases, is defined as being 35 miles (56 kilometers) or more from one of our offices. While you would be welcome to come into the office for team/business meetings, on-sites, meet-ups, and events, our expectation is you would regularly work from home rather than a Stripe office. Stripe does not cover the cost of relocating to a remote location. We encourage you to apply for roles that match the location where you currently or plan to live.

Pay and benefits

The annual US base salary range for this role is $118,200 - $177,300. 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.
