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.

Who we are

As the Developer Evangelist on the Developer Relations team, you'll develop and own the narrative to inspire Stripe’s developer users in how our products help to solve their problems, and build confidence across all key decision makers that the solutions chosen with Stripe will deliver for their needs now and in the future. You’ll build confidence in new and existing users around their understanding of their selected product integrations with Stripe and speed their understanding to make integration decisions. You will own the development of demos, examples and talks that you and senior executives use at our major events. 

 

You will:

  • Represent the overall Stripe brand to the Developer persona to all of our external users, partnering with teams across the company to demonstrate the capabilities and implementation of our suite of products
  • Develop and own the developer narrative internally and externally on how our products help to solve developer’s problems
  • Create momentum and drive adoption of the platform through your interactions with developers building applications and businesses on Stripe
  • Champion Stripe's developer products in person and online by presenting at conferences, events and meetups
  • Build inspiring demos, sample apps that demonstrate the functionality of Stripe’s products for both technical and non-technical audiences
  • Coach and support Stripe executives on the delivery of compelling technical demos and presentations at events or internally 

 

We're looking for someone who has:

  • 15+ years of experience in a Developer Relations, Software Engineering, or related
  • Creative, empathetic, communicative, and clever
  • Confident and comfortable presenting to different types of audiences, large and small
  • Adept skills communicating technically complicated topics simply and elegantly
  • Strong hands-on developer who is comfortable with full-stack development
  • Built full-scale demos of products that demonstrate their capabilities and inspire your users
  • Intellectually curious, with great problem-solving skills

 

You should include these in your application:

  • Projects & code you're proud of

  • Languages you are fluent in, both human and technical

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 $218,700 - $308,800. 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.
