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

The APAC Platforms team focuses on building software services and platforms that will impact every Stripe user, whether they’re an end user, developer, or partner. Our teams help to drive customer success and growth in key APAC countries, build intuitive and delightful onboarding experiences that strengthen our reputation for exceptional user experience as well as build and implement product ideas that directly reduce Stripe’s risk exposure and losses.

What you'll do:

  • Work in a small, cross-functional, dynamic engineering team to unlock the potential of Stripe’s growth in APAC.
  • Partner with product teams, data scientists, marketing teams, and go-to market teams, use data-driven and customer centric approach to design and build features to drive user adoption and retention.
  • Build customized user experience for Stripe’s APAC users.
  • Build live Stripe systems that interface with ML models to make risk decisions, and enact interventions and mitigations to protect Stripe from losses.
  • Work with our partner teams to define and implement new policies that directly impact Stripe’s bottom line.

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.
