Payments infrastructure for the internet.
The Accounts team is building products and APIs to help businesses gain valuable insights and build deeper relationships with their customers. A strong foundation of interoperable APIs is critical to Stripe’s long-term success. It’s important that we get the APIs that businesses use to model their customers right: that we understand how businesses think about their relationships and that we ensure that integrating against our APIs is nothing short of an amazing experience. We are applying Stripe’s developer-centric approach to building the flexible, programmable representation of humans and businesses that map across Stripe’s existing products. The team owns a mix of platform, infrastructure, and product problems. We are looking for leaders with a strong background or interest in working across many domains to build products, APIs, and systems that live in our users’ critical path. You’re comfortable in dealing with a lot of moving pieces, you have exquisite attention to detail, and you’re comfortable learning new technologies and systems.
We are looking for technical leaders who are excited to work across these domains, driving the technical vision for how Stripe will both build these foundations and build on top of them to deliver higher-level products for our users.
We’re looking for someone who has:
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.
Stripe builds financial tools and economic infrastructure for the internet. We’re helping small startups and the world’s biggest companies build products, create business models, and scale their efforts globally. And we’d like your help.
Our customers are the most ambitious organizations in the world. Previously, they had to create an ad hoc, informally specified, bug-ridden version of financial rails before they could do business online. We are doing the difficult-but-necessary work of building a global payments and treasury network—so entrepreneurs and enterprises can concentrate on creating value, not moving money.
We operate at significant scale, but we’re still tiny relative to the opportunity. 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.
