What you’ll do

Responsibilities

  • Scope and lead large technical projects with enormous impact for our users.
  • Scrutinize and reason clearly about the technology and architecture choices we make in building these products. In many cases, you will be the decider of these decisions
  • Directly contribute to core interface design and write code. Serve as a role model for how great software should be written for Stripe as a whole
  • Arbitrate critical decisions correctly that fully consider software best practices, Stripe system realities, and numerous stakeholders’ preferences and concerns
  • Work effectively cross functionally and mentor the next generation of technical leaders at Stripe.

Who you are

We’re looking for people with a strong background or interest in building successful products or systems; you’re passionate about solving business problems and making direct impact on customers, you are comfortable in dealing with lots of moving pieces; and you’re comfortable learning new technologies and systems.

Minimum requirements

  • Have 8+ years of industry Software Engineering experience.
  • Enjoy and have experience building scalable backend infrastructure.
  • Write high quality code. We work mostly in Scala, Java, and Javascript. However, languages can be learned: we care much more about your general engineering skill than knowledge of a particular language or framework.

Preferred qualifications

  • Domain expertise in accounting or financial management is a plus but not at all a requirement
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.
