Security

Stripe builds the economic infrastructure for the internet. Guided by our ‘Users First’ principle, we have a weighty obligation to the businesses built on Stripe and their end customers to manage our users’ data with integrity, trust, and transparency. It is the Security organization’s mission to safeguard our users’ data and maintain their trust.

As an engineer on the Privacy Products team, you’ll have the opportunity to build differentiated privacy products that provide transparency to our users about Stripe’s data practices, give users choices and controls about their data, and meet our users’ expectations for how Stripe handles and safeguards their data.

We’re looking for people with a strong background or interest in privacy and building user facing products. You should be comfortable in dealing with lots of moving pieces, have exquisite attention to detail, and adept at communicating and working cross-functionally.

You will:

  • Work with a wide range of systems, processes and technologies to solve problems at scale from end-to-end
  • Enjoy being a generalist working on both the frontend, backend, and anything it takes to solve problems and delight users both internally and externally
  • Uphold our high engineering standards and bring consistency to the many codebases and processes you will encounter
  • Collaborate with stakeholders across the organization such as product, design, infrastructure, and operations 
  • Have an opportunity to integrate and further develop your security expertise

You may be fit for this role if you:

  • Enjoy working across the stack, doing anything it takes to solve problems, and seeing projects through to completion
  • Put yourself in the shoes of users and take delight in crafting great privacy experiences, both internally and externally
  • Take pride in designing, building, and maintaining APIs, services, and systems at scale across Stripe’s engineering teams 
  • Reason clearly about security and product tradeoffs, while also balancing such priorities and decisions
  • Find improving engineering standards, tooling, and processes rewarding
  • Thrive in a collaborative environment involving different stakeholders and subject matter experts
  • Uphold best practices in engineering, security, privacy, and design

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.
