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 builds economic infrastructure for the internet. We’re moving beyond payments and “up the stack” to help our users run their businesses more effectively. Issuing is developing new APIs to empower businesses to launch physical and virtual card programs. We aim to help businesses deploy novel use cases that rely on fully programmable payment instruments.

What you'll do

We’re looking for an engineering manager to lead a key pillar for our Issuing organization. You’ll be responsible for expanding and developing the team. You’ll drive pillar vision and roadmap. You’ll lead our coordination with product teams, operations teams, and other engineering teams at Stripe. We’re looking for a leader with a strong background in building scalable products; we need someone who is comfortable in a fast-moving environment with lots of moving pieces.


  • Recruit, hire, scale, and develop an amazing team of engineers
  • Be actively involved in strategic direction and product decisions for an emerging business
  • Iterate rapidly on features, tooling, and processes as we launch first versions of new products
  • Work closely with our users and financial partners on a daily basis
  • Design, build, and maintain APIs, user-facing experiences, services, and systems
  • Engineer solutions across systems such as core money-movement infrastructure, data pipelines, banking systems, and more
  • Leverage the best of Stripe’s stack or build from the ground up when prudent
  • Debug production issues across services at multiple levels of the stack

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.

  • You think of yourself as entrepreneurial and enjoy moving quickly on new, green-field products
  • You hold yourself and others to a high bar when working with production systems
