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

Removing barriers to online commerce is at the heart of Stripe’s mission, and doing so requires effectively and efficiently protecting the businesses that trust Stripe at scale. Although risk management often implies a tradeoff between the user experience and user friction, Stripe refutes that paradigm. Instead, we focus on creating products, programs, and policies that simultaneously improve the user experience and drive growth, while systematically mitigating risks for Stripe’s business and partners.

As the Risk Product Lead, you will be responsible for growing and scaling teams, processes, and tools. You will collaborate with cross-functional partners to set a broad strategic vision to prevent fraud and abuse and enhance trust. You will execute the vision by designing and implementing technical solutions, increasing automation and working cross-functionally to address problems related to fraud risk, credit risk, policy enforcement. You will be focused on defining and delivering these capabilities for the next 10 years of Stripe. Your contributions will enable Stripe to move quickly in an ever changing risk landscape.
