Who we are

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.

About the team

As Stripe continues to develop innovative products that serve businesses of all sizes around the world, risk will increase in complexity and scale. The User Standards & Enablement team advances Stripe’s business, brand, and mission by deploying industry-leading policies and enablement solutions that instill user and partner trust in Stripe, while enabling progressive and sustainable business growth.

What you’ll do

As a Strategist on the User Standards & Enablement team focused on Developments, you will develop, implement, and manage the policies and standards that Stripe uses to determine with whom we can do business (and under what conditions). To do so, you will collaborate with a number of internal and external stakeholders, including Sales, Product, Legal, Ops, Communications, and other Risk teams, as well as executives and financial partners.

To support Stripe’s mission, you will leverage your understanding of risk to design policies and solutions that enable Stripe to support more users in more verticals and markets in a risk-conscious manner. You will also develop standards and processes that keep the Stripe ecosystem safe and healthy for our users, financial partners, and end-customers.

You will be a subject matter expert in Stripe’s policy and standards and will provide expert guidance to the business in navigating complex policy areas, the supportability of prospective clients, escalation and incident management, emerging trends, and risk-based decision-making for strategic users.

  • Work with cross-functional stakeholders to consult on time-sensitive, day-to-day standards questions from around the business
