Technical writers make Stripe’s products easy to use and integrate by creating useful content for developers and everyday users. Our documentation must exemplify quality and instill trust.

Stripe cares deeply about developer experience, both for our users and engineering employees.

  • Organize documentation and make it easily discoverable
  • Maintain content quality through curation and content performance analysis
  • Push Stripe and the industry forward by dreaming up and implementing new ways to deliver, author, analyze, and interact with technical content

We’re looking for someone who is:

  • Proficient in writing software documentation
  • Creative, empathetic, collaborative, optimistic, and curious
  • Adept at communicating technical concepts clearly and precisely
  • Able to quickly iterate and improve
  • Proficient in HTML and Markdown
  • Conversant with Unix
  • Conversant with Git
  • A perpetual learner and teacher

It’s nice if you have:

  • Experience writing about Ruby or another backend language like Go, Python, PHP, Node, or Java
  • Experience creating automated documentation tools
