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

Atlas lets you start a company in a few clicks, from anywhere in the world. Our goal is to create more startups that get to product-market fit. Startups are one of the most effective ways to solve the world’s problems—and the world certainly has more problems than solutions. Atlas helps founders start a startup, use the internet’s best tools, and automate operations while feeling ambitious, smart, and assured while they do it. 

Our core belief is that the number of startups is not static. In fact, 25% of Atlas founders say they wouldn’t have started their company without Atlas. Founders tell us that they spend too much time and money on distracting, complex operations tasks, rather than building their product and finding customers. We’re here to change that.

What you'll do

As the engineering manager on Atlas, you’ll work with a team of talented engineers, product managers, and designers to build Atlas and help founders start a company from anywhere in the world with just a few clicks. You’ll be responsible for leading the Atlas engineering team in achieving a high level of technical excellence and stability, and partner closely with product, design, legal, risk and other cross-functional teams to maintain a high-quality and consistent product for founders. In short, your role is to ensure Atlas becomes more and more impactful for founders.
