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

Developer Products builds tools that empower our developer users to build and integrate with Stripe. We aim to create new tools and experiences that can solve hard problems for our developer users that still give them meaningful and high-leverage ways for them to integrate. Our surface area ranges from installable tools like the Stripe CLI and Stripe for VS Code, to hosted surfaces like the Developer Dashboard and Stripe Shell, to backend services like a websocket multiplexor for event streaming.

  • Build new products and tools (like the Stripe CLI, the Stripe Shell, and Stripe for VS Code) that improve Stripe's developer experience
  • Add new features to existing products, continuing to keep our developer experience first-in-class
  • Influence the direction of our developer products by gathering insights and feedback from our developer community
  • Work across different products, tech stacks, and programming languages
