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

Our Revenue and Finance Automation (RFA) suite gives businesses power over the entire life cycle of their cash flow. By coordinating billing, tax, reporting, and data services in one modern stack, Stripe’s revenue and finance automation suite eliminates the inefficiencies of legacy finance tools and supports revenue growth.

The Reporting Foundations Team within RFA works on the consolidation and enhancement of the data infrastructure supporting Stripe's reporting products, encompassing Revenue Recognition, Revenue Reporting and the Reconciliation Products. We own the data infrastructure that powers the financial event pipeline, responsible for managing the data movement for our reporting use cases, by integration of data collection and hydration layer, unified accounting platform and publishing layer.

Our strategic initiatives comprise a wide spectrum of problems that include the augmentation of our data infrastructure's stability, conception of a robust data layer for aggregation and enrichment, architectural advancements to reduce latency, enabling real-time streaming for our previously batch based systems, reducing infra and computing expenditure, building long term abstractions and modular primitives to help improve integrations with the downstream products at Stripe.

You will:

  • Design, build, and maintain APIs, services, and systems across Stripe’s engineering teams.
  • Partner with the Revenue Recognition, Revenue Reporting and Reconciliation Product teams to understand their unique requirements related to data and reporting, and provide tailored technical support accordingly.
  • Debug production issues across services and multiple levels of the stack
  • Work with engineers across the company to build new features at large-scale
  • Contribute to improving engineering standards, processes, and tools with a keen eye on data engineering best practices.
  • Maintain a collaborative environment, engaging in discussions and decision-making processes with stakeholders within various domains at Stripe.

Who you are

It’s not expected that any single candidate would have expertise across all of these areas. For instance, we have wonderful team members who are really focused on their customers’ needs and building amazing user experiences, but didn’t work on APIs before joining Stripe.

Minimum requirements

  • You have a strong technical background with 5 -10 years of experience in the engineering field.
  • Proven experience in system design and high-quality code development.
  • Ability to uphold and champion high standards in working with large scale 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.
  • Enjoy working with a diverse group of people with different expertise (for example, ¼ of Stripes work in a country that’s different from the one they grew up in). Almost every role at Stripe collaborates with some engineers, from Sales and Support in sharing feedback from our customers; to Legal and Accounting in supporting our systems for tracking money movement and reporting around the world.

Preferred qualifications

  • Familiarity or experience in data infrastructure, streaming systems, or a related area.
  • Domain expertise in accounting, finance, or revenue recognition is beneficial, but not required.
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.
