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

WPP is organized into two pillars, each of which is grouped into pods that focus on the central tenets of Stripe's public mission. The Presence pillar creates industry-leading designs for Stripe’s front door surfaces, educates customers about the power of our platform, and drives our business success. The Platform pillar builds the internal machinery that powers these surfaces, and is responsible for making our websites fast, stable, and easy to modify.

WPP offers exciting opportunities to have a major impact on Stripe’s success, as stripe.com is often a user’s first impression of the company, and the vast majority of signups come via the website. We’ll apply data-driven rigor to our curiosity, and we’ll come up with clever ways to get insight into important questions. We’ll have the leeway to test out-of-the-box ideas alongside incremental ones. We’ll apply Stripe’s users-first mentality both internally and externally, crafting tangible productivity and quality-of-life improvements for colleagues while maintaining and elevating the quality of stripe.com.

What you’ll do

As a full stack engineer on WPP’s Platform pillar, you’ll partner closely with our marketing and data science partners to scope and implement internal tooling that increases the speed, velocity, and delightfulness of modifying the website while maintaining our industry-leading commitment to quality.

Initiatives could include, but are not limited to: a sophisticated localization system to dramatically improve our velocity and effectiveness of launching new markets, unlocking core web functionality such as search and discoverability, authoring experiences to empower internal partners, and tooling to reduce toil for your fellow designers and engineers. In doing so, you’ll enable Stripes to do their best work, bring additional partners into the authoring process while upholding our high quality bar, and directly impact Stripe’s success by marrying data-driven rigor with our deep commitment to craft.

Responsibilities

  • Work with a small team of technically sophisticated engineers who put users first
  • Work closely with a wide variety of internal users
  • Independently and collaboratively identify solutions to internal user pain points and build and iterate solutions
  • Integrate our web platform with best-in-class self-serve authoring and experimentation

Who you are

We’re looking for someone who meets the minimum requirements to be considered for the role. If you meet these requirements, you are encouraged to apply. The preferred qualifications are a bonus, not a requirement.

Minimum requirements

  • 5+ years of full stack development experience
  • Proven ability to collaborate with other non-technical disciplines
  • Proven ability to stitch different services and processes together even if you have not worked with them before
  • Passion for engineering solutions focused around internal enablement

Preferred qualifications

  • Previous experience engineering solutions focused on internal enablement
  • Experience in implementing solutions for localization in a global software environment.
  • Proficiency in Ruby and React
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.
