Program Manager, Compliance Management - Technology General Controls

Stripe makes it easy for any developer to access and manage the capabilities of the financial system while maintaining the least regulatory friction. We follow this principle internally as well where our team is focused on developing systems and processes that simplify compliance and audit work for our engineering/development teams.  

We’re looking for someone to lead our Technology General Controls program. In this role you will be helping our technology teams define and develop control processes that are repeatable and efficient. You will also be responsible to monitor/report the effectiveness of these control processes and assist them with the required remediation to maintain a compliant control environment. 

The right candidate will drive the implementation of a robust and complete information technology internal controls program and have extensive Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and technology experience. The ideal candidate will also have a proven track record of working within a high-growth organization and influencing and educating engineering teams on the concepts of information technology general controls.

This position within the Technology organization will work closely with the various control owning teams within the organization on control design, implementation, testing and remediation activities on one side. On the other side, the position will also partner with the controllership organization to adequately support Stripe’s information technology internal controls development, including risk assessment, performance of design and operating effectiveness assessment, working with cross-functional teams to address areas of risk and reporting on the progress and effectiveness of the controls program. Our technology infrastructure requires special attention and expertise to design the optimum set of controls.

You will:

  • Work closely with our technology teams to build and maintain IT general controls (Access Management, Change Management, System Operations etc.)
  • Develop formal internal control narratives and walkthrough documentation
  • Participate in conducting control design and effectiveness testing 
  • Inculcate a strong control ownership culture where teams understand/appreciate the benefits of controls and adhere to them.
  • Proactively work with control owners to assess new process or updates to existing process and their impact to internal controls
  • Be a strong advocate of continuous process improvement and control maturity

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • Experience working in Technology Internal Controls or SOX-ITGC
  • Demonstrated knowledge of internal control frameworks and concepts (specifically COSO and PCAOB standards)
  • Demonstrated knowledge of SOX requirements and ability to assist with documentation of Information Technology General Controls to support SOX compliance audits.
  • Ability to partner with our Technology organization to come up with optimal solutions to resolve control gaps
  • Solid understanding of security risks and threats, and in developing effective and measurable mitigation programs
  • Certifications such as, but not limited to CISA, CPA, or CIA are recommended.

At Stripe, we're looking for people with passion, grit, and integrity. You're encouraged to apply even if your experience doesn't precisely match the job description. Your skills and passion will stand out—and set you apart—especially if your career has taken some extraordinary twists and turns. At Stripe, we welcome diverse perspectives and people who think rigorously and aren't afraid to challenge assumptions. Join us.
