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’s payments products have helped to accelerate many of the world’s most innovative companies, and the Payments Methods team owns one of Stripe’s most critical workflows, a platform that processes billions of dollars in payments annually. 

We see more and more payment methods coming to the Buy Now Pay Later, Wallets, Bank Debits and Bank Transfers space. These provide more benefits to merchants and enable functionality that was not present before. These innovations are only increasing as new payment methods come to market each month. The team is focused on increasing the coverage and adoption of locally preferred payment methods for all our users. This includes building the payment method platform and the payment method integrations, and working on the adoption funnel to increase usage.

What you’ll do

We’re looking for a talented, experienced staff frontend engineer who can not only architect and code solutions, but also help define a vision, and lead the team to deliver on that vision. As the technical leader on the team, your decisions will have a significant impact on Stripe and the direct experience millions of people have with Stripe daily.


  • Architect, build, evolve, and maintain the foundational frontend
    platform used by all of Stripe’s product engineering teams

    many teams at Stripe

  • Work closely with cross functional partners (product, design, data

  • Advise Stripe’s leadership team on technical considerations related to
    the Dashboard experience

  • Be the technical leader for the team — managing priorities,
    identifying and mitigating risks, keeping overall project on track

  • Provide hands-on leadership on multiple fronts (architecture/design,
    code reviews, quality assurance and incident management) to other

  • Establish and drive adoption of design and coding best practices
    within the team

  • Mentor other engineers in their technical careers to help them grow

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.

  • A tendency to listen well and internalize the best ideas from all over the organization, while also setting a vision that others are excited to get behind
