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 Admin is an internal platform which is relied upon by Stripe employees globally for every part of their job: from talking with our users on the phone to launching a new feature and everything in between. Admin is an integral part of how we move quickly in service of our users. Admin Platform is responsible for the entire stack that powers Stripe Admin. Our platform supports hundreds of Stripe engineers globally, who deploy dozens of times daily into a several-hundred-thousand-line codebase to thousands of internal users; those users spend their entire day in Admin executing mission-critical tasks for Stripe. Our job is to improve productivity for all those stakeholders while upholding a world-class security posture, and this often requires intervention at every layer of the stack

  • Debug production issues across services and multiple levels of the stack
  • Uphold Stripe’s high standards for engineering and product quality and mentor newer team members to do the same.

Office-assigned Stripes in most of our locations are currently expected to spend at least 50% of the time in a given month in their local office or with users. This expectation may vary depending on role, team and location. For example, Stripes in our Bucharest, Romania site have an 80% in-office expectation, and those in Stripe Delivery Center roles in Mexico City, Mexico and Bengalaru, India work 100% from the office. Also, some teams have greater in-office attendance requirements, to appropriately support our users and workflows, which the hiring manager will discuss. This approach helps strike a balance between bringing people together for in-person collaboration and learning from each other, while supporting flexibility when possible.

Stripe does not yet include pay ranges in job postings in every country. Stripe strongly values pay transparency and is working toward pay transparency globally.
