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

Stripe Terminal helps our users extend their online presence to the physical world. The Terminal team’s mission is to make it as easy for businesses to accept in-person payments as the Stripe API has done for online payments. With Terminal, businesses can unlock in-person payments use cases that are right for their business model—whether it’s creating a superb retail experience, extending their website to a pop-up store, or enabling a mobile point-of-sale at their next event. Terminal is one of the fastest growing products at Stripe and we are expanding both globally and into new segments and verticals.

What you’ll do

We are investing in innovation to make it easier and faster for our customers to create their own unique, in-person commerce experience. To support that innovation we’re looking for a product manager to help lead and shape the future of our Terminal Device Platform - across device management, overall scalability and reliability, and creating the infrastructure for deploying applications to our Stripe payment devices at scale. The Device Management PM is responsible for the lifecycle of our Terminal devices. You will touch everything from ordering and shipping readers to deploying readers to configuring readers to updating readers to monitoring and troubleshooting readers to getting readers back in the case of an issue. You’ll be responsible for every aspect of the lifecycle of the device from the backend systems all the way to the frontend that our users (both internally and externally) use on a daily basis.


  • Set a motivating multi-year vision and then break it down into measurable, meaningful milestones for the Device Management, Logistics Engineering, and Foundations engineering teams. This includes creating buy-in, crafting roadmaps and OKRs, and navigating trade-offs
  • Partner with software and hardware engineers and cross functional partners to research, discover, and deeply understand what our internal developers need to unlock value for our end users and build solutions that our end users directly interact with.
  • Work closely with design teams to create and build dashboard interfaces enabling our users to manage their Terminal experience
  • Build empathy with our end users and the differentiation they aim to deliver for their merchants
  • Use metrics to inform your point of view and leverage analytics to measure success
  • Define product requirements and participate in sprint planning rituals to deliver against those requirements and the overall roadmap

Office-assigned Stripes spend at least 50% of the time in a given month in their local office or with users. This hits a balance between bringing people together for in-person collaboration and learning from each other, while supporting flexibility about how to do this in a way that makes sense for individuals and their teams.

The annual US base salary range for this role is $178,600 - $268,000. For sales roles, the range provided is the role’s On Target Earnings ("OTE") range, meaning that the range includes both the sales commissions/sales bonuses target and annual base salary for the role. This salary range may be inclusive of several career levels at Stripe and will be narrowed during the interview process based on a number of factors, including the candidate’s experience, qualifications, and location. Applicants interested in this role and who are not located in the US may request the annual salary range for their location during the interview process.

Additional benefits for this role may include: equity, company bonus or sales commissions/bonuses; 401(k) plan; medical, dental, and vision benefits; and wellness stipends.
