Engineering Manager, Radar Seattle

Advance Radar, Stripe’s suite of tools for fraud prevention.

Stripe makes it easy for anyone to start accepting payments, but one of the unfortunate realities of doing business online is fraud. Stripe helps its users detect and combat fraud with Radar (https://stripe.com/radar), a suite of products that includes a rules engine, a manual review system, and a machine learning core for assessing fraud risk. The Radar team is responsible for many of these and related products that help our users manage fraud. Work on Radar spans a wide range of functions—frontend, backend, and data infrastructure and analysis among them—and the team consists of engineers with experience across these areas.

You will:

  • Work with Product, Machine Learning, and Risk leaders at Stripe to determine our approach to fraud prevention from a technical and product perspective
  • Support the engineering team in achieving a high level of technical productivity and quality
  • Manage processes to help the team do its best work and interface effectively with the rest of Stripe
  • Recruit great engineers, in collaboration with Stripe’s recruiting team
  • Develop engineers on the team, helping them advance in their careers
  • Contribute to engineering-wide initiatives as a member of Stripe’s engineering management team

You may be a fit if:

  • You’ve managed teams that shipped and operated critical infrastructure
  • You are experienced with product development, machine learning, and (bonus points) fraud detection
  • You’ve successfully recruited great teammates
  • You thrive on a high level of autonomy and responsibility
  • You are excited about collaborating with teammates across Stripe’s organization, including Product, Machine Learning, and Risk
  • You have a couple years of engineering management experience or significant experience as a tech lead of a large team

What’s it like to work at Stripe?

Stripe is helping the internet fulfill its potential as a platform for economic progress by building software tools that accelerate global economic access and technological development. Stripe makes it easy to start, run and scale an internet business from anywhere in the world.

Stripe is, at its heart, an engineering company. To provide a missing pillar of core internet infrastructure, we hire people with a broad set of technical skills (and from a wide variety of backgrounds) who are ready to take on some of the most challenging problems in the industry – from reliably handling 100M API requests per day, to building adaptive machine learning as a result of years of data science and infrastructure work, and enabling entrepreneurs worldwide to start a global internet business.

We look at Stripe as a constant work in progress and the same is true of our people; for all of us, we believe the best is yet to come. We’re here to support each other in our curiosity and creativity – which we pursue through thoughtful discussion and knowledge-sharing among a diverse set of peers and colleagues.

We encourage all engineers to transition teams once every year and a half and also take on short-term projects with other teams across Stripe. This enables engineers to learn how different parts of Stripe work while also establishing stronger ties and cross-pollination between groups.

We contribute to existing open-source projects and the people working on them, and we release several tools as open-source.

We want to work in a company of warm, inclusive people who treat their colleagues exceptionally well. The kind of people who are committed to going out of their way to help other Stripes in the short-term and pushing them to improve over the long-term (by helping them to get better at what they do).

We’re a highly cross-functional organization and view that as part of the fun: we design our space to encourage as much collaboration as possible. We have long tables in the kitchen for a reason (to enable everyone to meet new people and learn from them). We also have a culture of transparency that we carry through to email communication, ensuring that Stripes all around the world have the information they need to make good local decisions.

In both our products and our people, we aim to reflect, represent and advocate for all of our users, globally. Our users transcend geography, culture and language; what we share, collectively, is a drive to create a fairer, more economically interconnected world.
