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. That means you have an unprecedented opportunity to put the global economy within everyone’s reach while doing the most important work of your career.

About the team

The Service Platform organization within Stripe focuses on enabling Stripe engineers to write and ship useful services that efficiently leverage infrastructure capabilities. We do so by building effective frameworks and abstractions on top of the core infrastructure platforms that abstract away challenging infrastructure complexities and promote best practices. We are forming a new Service Ecosystem Sustainability team within this organization. This team will be accountable for the health, consistency, and modernity of the service infrastructure ecosystem.

This is a critical cross-functional team that will collaborate closely across infrastructure and product teams. This is a challenging and impactful work that is crucial for reducing fragmentation and improving safe and consistent usage of the infrastructure.

As an engineer in the Service Ecosystem Sustainability team, you will help guide our service infrastructure sustainability roadmap. You will invest in the most impactful sustainability initiatives and work towards the goal of reducing fragmentation and promoting the use of the newer, better and safer abstractions. You will build strong partnerships, work on complex projects and provide technical guidance to the junior engineers on the team.

Office-assigned Stripes in most of our locations are currently expected to spend at least 50% of the time in a given month in their local office or with users. This expectation may vary depending on role, team and location. For example, Stripes in our Bucharest, Romania site have an 80% in-office expectation, and those in Stripe Delivery Center roles in Mexico City, Mexico and Bengalaru, India work 100% from the office. Also, some teams have greater in-office attendance requirements, to appropriately support our users and workflows, which the hiring manager will discuss. This approach helps strike a balance between bringing people together for in-person collaboration and learning from each other, while supporting flexibility when possible.

Stripe does not yet include pay ranges in job postings in every country. Stripe strongly values pay transparency and is working toward pay transparency globally.
