Head of Financial Crimes, Stripe Delivery Center

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

Did you know that only around 4% of the world’s GDP comes from internet
commerce? At Stripe, we believe that this represents a future with
almost limitless potential for innovation, creativity and global
prosperity. While the promise of a global online economy is palpable, it
doesn’t come without significant risk. Each day, bad actors disrupt the
trust and safety of the internet and increase the barrier of entry for
online businesses. The Financial Crimes team ensures that our platform
remains safe, and that prohibited parties are not allowed to utilize our
services.

deep financial crimes subject matter expertise, and strong operational
