Backend / API Engineer, Privacy Products Dublin

The Privacy Products team builds APIs, Customer Experiences, and Services to make it easy for Stripe Merchants to manage Stripe data in ways that align with their privacy guidelines and regulatory requirements.

As a platform company powering businesses all over the world, Stripe processes payments, runs marketplaces, detects fraud, helps entrepreneurs start an internet business from anywhere in the world, builds world-class developer-friendly APIs, and more. As a member of the data privacy team you will build and expand the tools we use to map data usage across Stripe’s infrastructure, and the tools that we use to implement access controls and data retention policies.

We have backend engineers in almost every team across Stripe, and in that role, you’ll be making some of the most significant decisions for the company. You’ll get to work with other engineers to build delightful features that span various parts of the system, as well as our business, sales and operations teams to understand and solve our users’ pain points.

We’re looking for people with a strong background or interest in building successful products or systems; you’re comfortable in dealing with lots of moving pieces; you have exquisite attention to detail; and you’re comfortable learning new technologies and systems.

You will:

  • Design, build, and maintain APIs, services, and systems across Stripe’s engineering teams
  • Debug production issues across services and multiple levels of the stack
  • Work with engineers across the company to build new features at large-scale
  • Improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes

You may be fit for this role if you:

  • Enjoy and have experience building APIs
  • Think about systems and services and write high quality code. We work mostly in Ruby, with some - Scala and Go. However, languages can be learned: we care much more about your general engineering skill than knowledge of a particular language or framework.
  • Hold yourself and others to a high bar when working with production systems
  • Take pride in working on projects to successful completion involving a wide variety of technologies and systems.
  • Thrive in a collaborative environment involving different stakeholders and subject matter experts

You might work on:

  • Enhance permissions and access controls for the Stripe dashboard
