of engineers, build relationships with customers internally and
externally, and champion our vision of building the best platform for
internet commerce. API Platform is a unique environment where you’ll be
working across all of Stripe’s products, and truly steering the future
of Stripe’s APIs, Developer, and User Experiences, whilst working with
world class engineers.

  • Recruit, hire, scale, and develop an amazing team of engineers
  • Be actively involved in strategic direction and product decisions that

  • Design, build, and maintain APIs, user-facing experiences, services,
    and systems
  • Design, build, and maintain internal facing tooling our product teams
    use to build amazing APIs and experiences
  • Drive Operational Excellence and Security across your team’s services

Projects your team may work on:

  • Building the future of the Stripe API
  • Building and scaling Stripe’s API Infrastructure
  • Working with product teams to extend the capabilities of our APIs

Who you are

You may be a fit for this role if:

  • You’ve built diverse teams to tackle challenging technical problems
  • Have at least 3 years of engineering management experience and 8 years
    of overall software development experience
  • Think of yourself as entrepreneurial and enjoy moving quickly on new,
    green-field initiatives
  • Hold yourself and others to a high bar when working with production
  • Thrive in a collaborative environment involving different stakeholders
    and subject matter experts

What’s it like to work at Stripe?

Stripe is helping the internet fulfil 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.

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 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.
