Build the services platform powering economic growth

Stripe’s infrastructure powers businesses all over the world. We process payments, run marketplaces, help entrepreneurs start an internet business from anywhere in the world, and more. Infrastructure engineers at Stripe build the systems that power all of our products, globally and at scale.Our users trust us with their businesses and livelihoods, and every request that Stripe handles is critical. We process billions of dollars every year for millions of users, from the largest enterprises to a startup making their first sale. We invest deeply in the reliability and security of our infrastructure to earn their trust.

The Services Platform team is responsible for empowering teams to build highly reliable and performant services, backing our payment systems, fraud detection, and a multitude of other products.

As a full stack engineer on the Services Platform team, you will have a large degree of autonomy and the opportunity to work closely with product teams to powerful interfaces and frameworks for engineers that depend on the platform. You will design the interface and framework that integrate into the team’s platform, choosing the right abstractions and APIs to expose the platform’s users.

We work cross functionally across a large surface area, partnering with many teams and one of our greatest rewards is to set next to and see the impact of our work has on our users: our fellow Stripes.

You will:

  • Own solutions from end to end, managing complexity and directly engaging with stakeholders to think everything from the design interface to the ergonomics of individual APIs
  • Develop a JavaScript framework for product teams and fellow engineers to extend and build on top of
  • Work with engineers across the company to build new features at large-scale, while improving internal engineering standards, tooling, and processes

You may be a fit for this role if you have:

  • Curiosity to learn and share knowledge with peers, and the motivation to empower others to be more productive
  • A mature understanding to strike the balance between ideal and pragmatic solutions on a case-by-case basis
  • Enjoy working across a full stack, from user experience, to API design, to reliability
  • 3+ years of industry experience
  • Coding skills in JavaScript and using modern frameworks like React, Vue, etc.
  • Some experience using in Java, Scala, Go, or another statically typed language
  • Familiarity with the full life cycle of software development, from design and implementation to testing and deployment

What’s it like to work at Stripe?

Stripe is helping the internet fulfill its potential as a platform for economic progress by building software tools that accelerate global economic access and technological development. Stripe makes it easy to start, run and scale an internet business from anywhere in the world.

Stripe is, at its heart, an engineering company. To provide a missing pillar of core internet infrastructure, we hire people with a broad set of technical skills (and from a wide variety of backgrounds) who are ready to take on some of the most challenging problems in the industry – from reliably handling 100M API requests per day, to building adaptive machine learning as a result of years of data science and infrastructure work, and enabling entrepreneurs worldwide to start a global internet business.

We look at Stripe as a constant work in progress and the same is true of our people; for all of us, we believe the best is yet to come. We’re here to support each other in our curiosity and creativity – which we pursue through thoughtful discussion and knowledge-sharing among a diverse set of peers and colleagues.

We encourage all engineers to transition teams once every year and a half and also take on short-term projects with other teams across Stripe. This enables engineers to learn how different parts of Stripe work while also establishing stronger ties and cross-pollination between groups.

We contribute to existing open-source projects and the people working on them, and we release several tools as open-source.

We want to work in a company of warm, inclusive people who treat their colleagues exceptionally well. The kind of people who are committed to going out of their way to help other Stripes in the short-term and pushing them to improve over the long-term (by helping them to get better at what they do).

We’re a highly cross-functional organization and view that as part of the fun: we design our space to encourage as much collaboration as possible. We have long tables in the kitchen for a reason (to enable everyone to meet new people and learn from them). We also have a culture of transparency that we carry through to email communication, ensuring that Stripes all around the world have the information they need to make good local decisions.

In both our products and our people, we aim to reflect, represent and advocate for all of our users, globally. Our users transcend geography, culture and language; what we share, collectively, is a drive to create a fairer, more economically interconnected world.
