Seattle. Remote in North America only

Full time

Merchant intelligence

Before Stripe, every growing internet platform had a payments team. Today, every growing internet platform has an Identity/Risk team. Identity verification is a core piece of economic infrastructure for online businesses. We’ve built an identity solution that among other things can help platforms and their users maintain trust & safety.

Our identity product needs to be tested and optimized in order to be in the critical path of millions of online businesses while allowing us to ship new features quickly. That’s where frontend platform engineering will come in.

You’ll be responsible for providing state of the art developer tooling, testing frameworks, deployment systems, and other platform components to ensure performance, security and reliability. 

Join us to build the service that empowers platforms to take the burden and cost out of identity verifications and scale globally with ease.

You might work on:

  • Integrating with Stripe-wide deployment and build systems to keep things running smoothly
  • Implementing state-of-the art cross browser testing to ensure our identity experiences work every time, for every user
  • Refactoring Javascript tech stack to dramatically reduce load times and bundle size
  • Automatically enforcing standards around accessibility and internationalization

You may be fit for this role if you:

  • Have experience developing and running build, test, and deployment tools in production environments
  • Have experience working with JavaScript developer tools and their quirks
  • Have empathy, a collaborative spirit, and the ability to work effectively with a team
  • Have a sense for how to hit the optimal balance between rigor and velocity
  • Have an appreciation for the importance of good documentation – internal and external

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.
