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 Banking as a Service (BaaS) team is an end-to-end platform that lets marketplaces and platforms embed financial services in their products. Our team’s products include Stripe Treasury and Stripe Issuing. Our platform is an infrastructure that enables our users to do things like run an entire card stack for a new digital bank, create employee expense cards with dynamic spending limits, or generate virtual cards so that on-demand couriers can pay with their phones at specific merchants.

What you'll do

We have ambitious goals to enable global businesses to run their entire financial life cycle on Stripe, and we want you to be part of our story. 

Responsibilities

  • Align our technical decisions with Stripe’s broad strategic initiatives, while also advocating for needs specific to emerging new businesses
  • Work with engineers across the company to understand when existing infrastructure can be leveraged vs. when building a bespoke solution is prudent
  • Develop and execute against both short- and long-term roadmaps. Make effective tradeoffs that consider business priorities, user experience, and a sustainable technical foundation
