We are looking for someone to develop strategy and execute on high-impact initiatives to change the trajectory of Stripe and how Stripe users grow their businesses. Potential partners could include Amazon, Microsoft, Shopify, Apple, Google, Facebook and Salesforce.

  • Navigate, in partnership with strategic partner managers, named partners in order to obtain buy-in and execute deals in accordance with the strategy
  • Help ensure, throughout the deal process, that a proper execution plan is in place, coordinating between Stripe and partner teams
  • Gather inputs from and coordinate with internal stakeholders (including product, engineering, sales, and compliance) on creation and execution of partner programs
  • Help find the right stakeholders within each partner organization that can champion Stripe, educate them about Stripe’s value proposition, understand their needs, execute deals that address those needs, and support Stripe’s long term strategy

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • At least 10+ years of experience working in externally facing roles with 5+ years of business development (ideally in the technology space)
  • Broad and deep experience executing partnership strategies to build innovative product experiences and go to market models with technology companies
  • Strong negotiation skills
  • A strong knowledge of the intricacies of navigating technology organizations
  • Demonstrated ability to use data to make decisions and influence stakeholders
  • An ability to flourish with minimal guidance, be proactive, and handle ambiguity

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.
