Partner Content Lead
Stripe’s infrastructure and suite of APIs powers hundreds of thousands of businesses—from startups to Fortune 500s—in almost every country around the world. From developers and product managers to founders and CFOs, a broad audience interacts with Stripe’s products and uses them to start, run, and scale their companies. Removing the barriers to online commerce helps more new businesses get started, expedites growth for existing companies, and increases economic output and trade globally.
We’re looking for an experienced, creative, results-oriented Partner Content Lead to join our Partner Marketing team. The Partner Marketing team’s mission is to create an outstanding Stripe experience for partners, supporting them with the right engagement, resources, and incentives as they build, launch, market, and scale their business with us. The Partner Content Lead will develop and deliver marketing and sales enablement content, packaged co-marketing content kits, and customized co-marketing content to support our global partners as they go to market with Stripe. This role owns defining the partner content strategy, writing and producing content, and building infrastructure for scalable content creation and production. As an early member of the Partner Marketing team, this is a great opportunity to build and have an impact on the business.
We operate at a significant scale, but we’re still tiny relative to the opportunity ahead, so there is still much to do. Join us and help put the global economy within everyone’s reach.
