Who we are

About Stripe

You will join one of the teams behind infrastructure platforms used by engineering, security, and business partners at Stripe. As a Software Engineer, you will be responsible for implementation of high quality compliance automation systems and products that are reliable and prepared to scale with Stripe’s growth.

You will build solutions that may be “from scratch”, built on top of in-house platforms, or leveraging 3rd party solutions. We partner closely with internal teams and business partners representing end customers, and we expect that working along the team’s technical leaders, you will be able to understand their needs and build software that best meets their needs. We are a highly effective team, consistently delivering high-impact results while genuinely caring for each other. Our “compliance-as-code” platform accelerates Stripe’s ability to meet compliance requirements in current and future markets, enabling Stripe to be efficient and expand faster.

We’re looking for engineers with a background in infrastructure or security, who are interested in delivering high performance infrastructure products to internal and external customers. We’d love to hear from you whether you’ve been working in infrastructure your whole career, or would like to try your skill set in a new-to-you compliance and security engineering domain.


  • You will develop and maintain observability tools for security and compliance of infrastructure environments
  • Continuously increase the accuracy and reliability of data pipelines of compliance-related data
  • Partner with other infrastructure and security teams to implement APIs for security and compliance data
  • Implement compliance testing APIs and frameworks driving efficiency and predictability
  • Build a great customer experience for developers and business partners using your products

Who you are

We’re looking for candidates who meet the minimum requirements to be considered for the role. The preferred qualifications are a bonus, not a requirement.

Minimum requirements

  • 5+ years of engineering experience OR equivalent combined work experience reflecting domain expertise as relevant to this position
  • Experience in building infrastructure products centered around users’ needs
  • A strong technical background gained through education or on-the-job experiences

Preferred qualifications

  • Interest in optimizing the reliability, security, and compliance of distributed systems
  • Ability to work effectively with a diverse group of people, genuinely caring for each other and contributing to high level of psychological safety for all team members and partners
  • Problem-solving skills, determination, and a growth mindset

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.
