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

Connect builds infrastructure for the world’s leading platforms and marketplaces to incorporate payments into their products. Connect has been at the forefront of Stripe’s growth due to the power of its offering, which enables our users to distribute Stripe’s payment processing directly to their sellers and merchants. As Stripe grows its suite of product offerings beyond payments, Connect will unlock a new phase of growth for Stripe by enabling our platforms to distribute all of Stripe’s products to their end users.

Tax Reporting Product builds tax products and services for the world’s leading businesses to remain compliant with the tax authorities and to solve their tax complexities so that they can operate and grow globally using Stripe’s network. Our mission is to enable businesses and Stripe to fulfill their tax reporting needs, simply. We’re solving a very hard problem of stitching together the monetary flows and reporting obligations between an expansive collection of merchants, marketplaces, financial institutions and government regulators. Our new product distills the complex rules of tax into a platform with streamlined experiences that make tax filings easy and accurate. We are also one of the top emerging SaaS product offerings within Stripe and are enabling the company’s growth beyond core payments.

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.
