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

One of the key drivers to our success is an exceptional emphasis on our people. We believe that our competitive advantage lies in our talent and that we can build a sustainable advantage by enabling individuals and teams to contribute their full potential. Stripe is looking for a People Partner (HRBP) to drive that effort in Product and Business. This includes supporting our leaders and senior managers through scale, creating an environment where Stripes of all backgrounds can thrive, aligning our business and technical strategy with our people strategy, using data to develop best practices from 1st principles.

What you’ll do

As a People Partner, you’ll partner with senior business leaders and managers to develop and deliver on our people strategy, advance our company mission and enable leaders to build high impact, healthy teams to deliver outstanding results to Stripe users.


  • Act as a strategic consultant to leaders, partnering to guide and enable them in aligning their business and people strategies to optimize user and Stripe experience
  • Collaborate, develop and drive programs cross functionally to advance the People Strategy for Stripe
  • Leverage data, insights and craft to inform design and decisions on strategy, structure and programs and promote org health and productivity
  • Advise and coach leaders and managers on org design and strategy, change management interventions and other key organizational initiatives focused on optimizing for efficiency, seamless cross-functional collaboration, and decentralized decision-making
  • Support leaders as they execute on global talent and organizational planning, identifying and investing in critical talent and intentionally planning for future business needs and ambitious goals
  • Promote a culture guided by our Operating Principles, that continuously elevates the caliber and kindness of Stripes and better ways of working together
  • Support the Leadership team and organization through continued growth and evolution

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.

Minimum requirements

  • 10+ years of experience as an HR business partner, preferably with a mix of experience in fast-growing technology companies and more established organizations
  • Experience partnering and influencing senior leaders to help drive and align their people strategy and increase business results
  • Strong analytical and project management skills, proven ability to design clear processes, and a very detail-oriented yet flexible approach to problem solving
  • Exceptional communication skills, both written and verbal
  • Proven ability to partner and influence across diverse groups and experience levels

Preferred qualifications

  • Experience supporting organizations within product and/or other go-to-market or other revenue business teams
  • A strategist and scaler, who can connect the dots between where we’re going and how we need to nudge the organization to get there
  • A partner and connector who builds trusted relationships with managers and leaders by providing deep insights and helping them see around corners
  • A business partner who deeply understands Stripe’s strategy and aligns it with the organization’s structures, processes, initiatives and processes
  • A collaborator, who gets energy from working with leaders to create the best possible teams and organizational structures
  • A strategic thinker whose decisions are informed by data, experience, and Stripe’s operating principles
  • A coach who loves building and developing high-impact teams

This role is available either in an office or a remote location (typically, 35+ miles or 56+ km from a Stripe office).

Office-assigned Stripes spend at least 50% of the time in a given month in their local office or with users. This hits a balance between bringing people together for in-person collaboration and learning from each other, while supporting flexibility about how to do this in a way that makes sense for individuals and their teams.

A remote location, in most cases, is defined as being 35 miles (56 kilometers) or more from one of our offices. While you would be welcome to come into the office for team/business meetings, on-sites, meet-ups, and events, our expectation is you would regularly work from home rather than a Stripe office. Stripe does not cover the cost of relocating to a remote location. We encourage you to apply for roles that match the location where you currently or plan to live.

The annual US base salary range for this role is $174,600 - $261,800. For sales roles, the range provided is the role’s On Target Earnings ("OTE") range, meaning that the range includes both the sales commissions/sales bonuses target and annual base salary for the role. This salary range may be inclusive of several career levels at Stripe and will be narrowed during the interview process based on a number of factors, including the candidate’s experience, qualifications, and location. Applicants interested in this role and who are not located in the US may request the annual salary range for their location during the interview process.

Additional benefits for this role may include: equity, company bonus or sales commissions/bonuses; 401(k) plan; medical, dental, and vision benefits; and wellness stipends.
