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.
We are looking for an experienced Policy & Technical Accountant to help us analyze and account for our most complex projects and baseline our policies in accordance with US GAAP. This candidate will have meaningful experience evaluating accounting issues with a particular focus in areas such as revenue (a must), consolidations, financial instruments, foreign currency, leases, investments, stock-based compensation, debt/equity, business combinations. This person will build and maintain our accounting policy documentation working cross-functionally within the Accounting organization. The ideal candidate will have both public accounting experience (National Office rotation strongly preferred) in tech and/or financial service industries as well as hand-on industry experience working for companies with a high volume of complex transactions and issues.
This position within the Controllership organization will assess, research, analyze and document our accounting policy considerations for Stripe transactions, accounting policy elections, the adoption of new reporting and accounting standards, as well as other matters where technical expertise is required, particularly with respect to new product/service scoping and rollout. This position will work and advise cross-functional teams with a focus on collaborating with various business partners.
We’re looking for someone who meets the minimum requirements to be considered for the role. If you meet these requirements, you are encouraged to apply. The preferred qualifications are a bonus, not a requirement.
This role is available either in an office or a remote location (typically, 35+ miles or 56+ km from a Stripe office).
Office-assigned Stripes spend at least 50% of the time in a given month in their local office or with users. This hits a balance between bringing people together for in-person collaboration and learning from each other, while supporting flexibility about how to do this in a way that makes sense for individuals and their teams.
A remote location, in most cases, is defined as being 35 miles (56 kilometers) or more from one of our offices. While you would be welcome to come into the office for team/business meetings, on-sites, meet-ups, and events, our expectation is you would regularly work from home rather than a Stripe office. Stripe does not cover the cost of relocating to a remote location. We encourage you to apply for roles that match the location where you currently or plan to live.
The annual US base salary range for this role is $155,300 - $219,200. For sales roles, the range provided is the role’s On Target Earnings ("OTE") range, meaning that the range includes both the sales commissions/sales bonuses target and annual base salary for the role. This salary range may be inclusive of several career levels at Stripe and will be narrowed during the interview process based on a number of factors, including the candidate’s experience, qualifications, and location. Applicants interested in this role and who are not located in the US may request the annual salary range for their location during the interview process.
Additional benefits for this role may include: equity, company bonus or sales commissions/bonuses; 401(k) plan; medical, dental, and vision benefits; and wellness stipends.
