Engineering Leader, LATAM

Mexico City

Full time

Payments infrastructure

Stripe’s core mission is to reduce the barriers faced by large and emerging businesses around the world by abstracting away the complexities of payments. The Global team is responsible for building the payments products & infrastructure needed to launch new markets and process payments successfully around the world. This is one of the few places in the world where moving information literally means moving money. In Latin America, we’re looking to build a thriving engineering presence complementing and extending the reach of our current U.S. offices.

Stripe is looking for an experienced leader who has built and led engineering and product teams in the enterprise software space. This leader should have a strong track record of supporting, mentoring and hiring across various engineering groups and should be an expert in positioning business value, leveraging software solutions and building relationships with key stakeholders in Latin America.

You will:

  • Lead our Latin American engineering teams and directly manage other engineering managers in Mexico City, Seattle, and other Stripe offices
  • Work with other Stripe leaders to define, design, and execute the plan for Stripe’s technical vision and product strategy in both Latin America and globally
  • Represent Stripe in official functions, in collaboration with Stripe’s communications team
  • Recruit a team of great engineers and managers, in collaboration with Stripe’s recruiting team
  • Contribute to engineering-wide initiatives as a member of Stripe’s senior engineering management team

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • Experience as an engineering leader who has mentored other engineering leaders and enabled their teams to do the best work of their careers
  • An ability to thrive on a high level of autonomy and responsibility
  • A track record of hiring and leading productive global engineering teams
  • Experience with encouraging a healthy work environment that’s both supportive and challenging
  • Demonstrated a solid understanding of the technical landscape in Latin America
  • Fluency and strong communication skills in both Spanish and English (written and spoken); Portuguese is a plus.

What’s it like to work at Stripe? Stripe is helping the internet fulfill its potential as a platform for economic progress by building software tools that accelerate global economic access and technological development. Stripe makes it easy to start, run and scale an internet business from anywhere in the world.

Stripe is, at its heart, an engineering company. To provide a missing pillar of core internet infrastructure, we hire people with a broad set of technical skills (and from a wide variety of backgrounds) who are ready to take on some of the most challenging problems in the industry – from reliably handling 100M API requests per day, to building adaptive machine learning as a result of years of data science and infrastructure work, and enabling entrepreneurs worldwide to start a global internet business.

We look at Stripe as a constant work in progress and the same is true of our people; for all of us, we believe the best is yet to come. We’re here to support each other in our curiosity and creativity – which we pursue through thoughtful discussion and knowledge-sharing among a diverse set of peers and colleagues.

We encourage all engineers to transition teams once every year and a half and also take on short-term projects with other teams across Stripe. This enables engineers to learn how different parts of Stripe work while also establishing stronger ties and cross-pollination between groups.

We contribute to existing open-source projects and the people working on them, and we release several tools as open-source.

We want to work in a company of warm, inclusive people who treat their colleagues exceptionally well. The kind of people who are committed to going out of their way to help other Stripes in the short-term and pushing them to improve over the long-term (by helping them to get better at what they do).

We’re a highly cross-functional organization and view that as part of the fun: we design our space to encourage as much collaboration as possible. We have long tables in the kitchen for a reason (to enable everyone to meet new people and learn from them). We also have a culture of transparency that we carry through to email communication, ensuring that Stripes all around the world have the information they need to make good local decisions.

In both our products and our people, we aim to reflect, represent and advocate for all of our users, globally. Our users transcend geography, culture and language; what we share, collectively, is a drive to create a fairer, more economically interconnected world.

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.
