Stripe’s mission is to increase the GDP of the internet. We build the most powerful and flexible tools for running an internet business. We handle billions of dollars each year and enable millions of users around the world to scale faster and more efficiently by building their businesses on Stripe. More than 80% of American adults bought something on Stripe in the last year. The Risk team plays a critical role in the company’s financial and partnership health.

As Stripe continues to develop innovative products that serve large populations of businesses around the world, risk will increase in complexity. To scale sustainably, Stripe must build risk considerations into its growing suite of products and expansion into new markets.
