Software Engineer, Extensibility Platform

About Stripe

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.

About the team

From single-developer startups to enterprise companies with thousands of employees, our users rely on Stripe as the commerce platform to power their business. Whether they’re modeling business workflows like shipping a product after it’s successfully been paid, or storing data about a customer to run reports against at the end of the quarter, it’s our mission to extend the capabilities of Stripe so that users of all backgrounds can model their business on top of our platform.

The Extensibility Platform organization builds the products and underlying platform that extends the capabilities of what Stripe can do for our users. This includes programmatic notification of events that occur on Stripe with Event Destinations like Webhooks, storing custom data with Metadata, and customizing business workflows with Automations. Our work spans the entirety of the Stripe product surface area, which means that we sit at the intersection of end users, product teams, and infrastructure at Stripe. We’re looking for engineers to join these teams to help support our broader mission.

  • Build new products and tools (like Metadata and Automations) that make it easier for users to automate extend the capabilities of Stripe
  • Build the platform for other teams at Stripe to expose their products in our Developer Platform
  • Influence the direction of our developer products by gathering insights and feedback from our community
  • Work across different products, tech stacks, and programming languages
  • Turn ambiguous problems that our users are facing into concrete products, from proposal to launch

Who you are

  • 3+ years of industry experience
  • A strong product mindset
  • Prior experience building tools and products for developers
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills

Hybrid work at Stripe

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.

Pay and benefits

The annual US base salary range for this role is $136,800 - $205,200. 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.
