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

We believe that accepting payments and building checkout experiences in mobile apps could be much easier. We’ve solved part of the problem today with our Mobile Payment Element and other products in our SDKs, but our ambition is to go much further. For businesses, it’s still too hard to collect payments in every language, currency, payment method, and tax system, all while customizing the UI to fit their apps.

Mobile is an area of important investment for Stripe, and our mobile SDKs already power an incredible diversity of experiences for companies like DoorDash, Instacart, Urban Outfitters, Depop, and Kickstarter. We’re looking for an engineer with a solid understanding of the iOS platform to help define Stripe’s future on mobile.

What you’ll do

As part of the Mobile Optimized Checkout Suite team, you’ll develop new payment APIs and checkout UI flows for iOS developers to include in their apps. One project could have you implementing a new local payment method to be made available for millions of customers, and the next could have you working to make our checkout experiences more customizable for some of your favorite apps. You’ll also help us continue to explore newer technologies like SwiftUI and Swift Concurrency as we iterate on better solutions for our users.
