Engineering Manager, Radar Services

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

Stripe’s Payment Intelligence group is responsible for optimizing each of the billions of dollars of transactions processed by Stripe each year on behalf of our users, in order to maximize successful transactions while minimizing payment costs and fraud. Radar Services owns the technical stack that enables us to make critical real-time decisions to step-up or intervene on every transaction that Stripe processes. The team is home to domain experts on fraud and payments systems that work across the larger Payments organization to stay ahead of adversarial attacks, and to develop novel ways to improve Stripe’s payments performance. 

What you’ll do

As an Engineering Manager you define a vision and strategy for your area, enable engineers to do the best work of their careers, and ensure your team delivers outstanding results. You’ll obsess over talent and be an active partner to recruiters to ensure your team is staffed with the people it needs to accomplish its goals.


  • Work with a team of talented engineers and product managers to solve payment fraud and risk challenges for merchant fraud teams and other Radar users
  • Drive the roadmap and priorities for your team, and work with dependencies across the company
  • Lead an engineering team in achieving a high level of technical excellence and stability
  • Be deeply involved in new product and market launches

  • Recruit, coach and develop engineers

Who you are

You enjoy diving into and deeply understanding the businesses that use Radar — in this role, you’ll learn a ton about what works and what doesn’t, and have significant influence in increasing the success of this ecosystem as a whole. You 

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

  • At least 4 years of engineering management experience and 10 years of overall experience in the industry
  • Successfully led high-complexity teams, working in parallel on multiple high-impact areas
  • Work very well cross-functionally, and are able to think rigorously and make hard decisions and tradeoffs
  • Thrive on a high level of autonomy and responsibility
  • Encourage a healthy work environment that’s both supportive and challenging
  • Strong technical background and hands-on experience in solving large scale and difficult technical problems

Preferred qualifications

  • Payments domain experience
  • Fraud domain experience

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 $224,300 - $336,500. 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.
