Staff Visual Designer, Design Systems

Design at Stripe

We believe there are too many barriers to doing business on the
internet, and that opportunities are not equally distributed throughout
the world. We also think building and growing a business online is a
problem rooted in code, language, and design—not finance. Stripe’s
mission is to increase the GDP of the internet and expand economic
access globally. We’re designing tools and infrastructure to help our
users start, run, and scale an online business from anywhere in the
world. That’s where you come in: we’re looking for a diverse set of
designers of many disciplines, skills, backgrounds, and specialties to
join our growing Design team.

The design team works across most projects at Stripe—from our brand
voice and websites to events, web and mobile products, and even printed
publications. And since Stripe’s main audience is other people who build
products, we agonize over and take pride in crafting user-friendly and
user-focused experiences.

We are looking for a highly visual product designer to join our Design
Systems team and work closely with our newly-formed Consumer team. This
is a new role for Stripe and an opportunity to not only up-level our
already exceedingly high standards for visual design, but also define
what a visual designer does at Stripe and pave the way for this new

You will:

  • Up-level the overall fit and polish of Stripe’s products, especially
    consumer products and experiences 
  • Partner with product designers to define and evolve our visual design
  • Collaborate across design and engineering to align teams and educate
    on our design system’s best practices 
  • Mentor junior designers
  • Work side-by-side with product designers, engineers, writers, and
    other stakeholders from around the company to develop the tools and
    processes they need to build world-class user experiences.
  • Write documentation and usage guidelines that teach designers and
    engineers how to use components and patterns across design and code.
  • Evangelize creating delight through beautiful user interfaces across
    the team and the company

You will have:

  • 7+ years of design experience, with an emphasis on visual design
  • Plenty of experience contributing to a design system or even leading
    the creation of one
  • An incredible portfolio 

You should include these in your application:

  • A link to your online portfolio
  • Your CV or LinkedIn profile
  • A few words about why Stripe is interesting to you
