Who we are

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

We are passionate about helping merchants build highly optimized, delightful checkout experiences. The team is directly responsible for Stripe’s Web Elements, a suite of rich, customizable UI components, that enable users to build complex checkout flows with a simple integration. We make it as easy as possible for merchants to start collecting payments on their own website, while ensuring world-class security, reliability, and compliance.  

Our team members are driven by delivering high-quality UIs that serve the needs of both merchants and consumers at scale. We care about the details – whether that’s building a solid foundation, delivering highly polished UI/UX, or writing thorough tests – and truly understanding our users. We are a distributed engineering team and get together in-person a few times per year.

As a frontend engineer working on Elements Web, you’ll join a payments team building high-quality UI components for merchants’ checkout pages. You’ll work with experienced frontend and full-stack engineers, as well as product and design to deliver world-class checkout experiences. Our team places a heavy emphasis on high-polish UI/UX, building scalable and long-lasting products, reliability and security, and solid frontend infrastructure.

Hybrid work at Stripe

Our Chicago, Dublin, and Singapore teams spend at least 50% of their time in their local offices. We believe that more in-person interactions will contribute to better results for our employees and Stripe. Increased office time allows for improved collaboration, efficiency, and informal learning opportunities, fostering a stronger community and building our culture. We will apply the insights gained from these initial three locations to continue refining our hybrid approach.
