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

As a platform company powering businesses all over the world, Stripe processes payments, runs marketplaces, and detects fraud, helping entrepreneurs start an internet business from anywhere in the world. User Billing provides a central entry point to Stripe teams to monetize products in global markets, consisting of our Revenue Platform, Pricing Onboarding and Enterprise Billing teams. This will be accomplished through a sophisticated pricing onboarding tooling and workflow management, unified revenue engine, and custom solutions to the complex problems facing our largest enterprise users.

The senior IC role here is responsible for driving the architecture and development of the next generation payment stack.  This system can integrate with hundreds of payment rails at one side, enable many innovative products at the other side, while at the same time increasing the scale and rigor of the money movement operations in between.
