Partner Program Marketing 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 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.

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 start, run, and scale their business with us. The Partner Program Marketing Lead will lead the marketing strategy, development, and execution of how Stripe markets our partner program to existing and prospective partners, how we engage and nurture existing partners, and how we communicate the value of the Stripe partner ecosystem to the industry. As an early member of the Partner Marketing team, this is a great opportunity to build and have an impact on the business.

- Define the key success metrics for our partner program marketing initiatives and drive data-driven prioritization decisions
- Be a strategic thinker, problem solver, and communicator who is focused on building meaningful and impactful long-term relationships with partners
