  • Stay up-to-date, with the support of Stripe’s legal subject matter experts, on U.S. and international laws and regulations dealing with privacy, data security, consumer protection, financial services, and marketing
  • Participate as a proactive business partner to senior managers and build a trusted advisor relationship

  • A passion for technology and ability to understand complex business models and product use cases quickly
  • Strong communication (both written and verbal) and project management skills with a strict attention to detail
  • Excellent project management skills and ability work under tight deadlines
  • Excellent judgment, and be capable of making smart decisions in the face of ambiguity and imperfect information

It’s a bonus (but not required) that you also have:
