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’s payments products have helped to accelerate many of the world’s most innovative companies, and the Payments Methods team owns one of Stripe’s most critical workflows, a platform that processes billions of dollars in payments annually.

Payment Methods provide more benefits to merchants and enable functionality that was not present before. Within payment methods, bank debits is one of the commonly used solutions that allows direct debiting of funds from a customer bank account supporting both single and recurring payments. As a result, consumers enjoy various benefits ranging from automating transactions, avoiding the risk of missing payment deadlines and being charged late payment fees, and a peace of mind of not worrying about any interruption of service. This team is responsible for all debit solutions across North America regions (such as ACH Direct Debit) enabling merchants to process millions of dollars every month with a global outreach.

The Banking Methods team is responsible for Stripe’s connections to world’s top-seed B2B and low cost payment methods. The engineering leader for the bank debits team is responsible for driving the technical vision for improving our connections to top schemes worldwide. This includes efforts to make these schemes more performant and easier to manage, as well as efforts to build first-of-a-kind features like customer authentication and cross-border acceptance.

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.

  • You have great product taste and a track record of taking complex problems and solving them elegantly.
  • You enjoy diving into and deeply understanding the businesses that use Stripe.
  • You work very well cross-functionally, and are able to think rigorously and make hard decisions and tradeoffs.

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 $203,900 - $305,900. 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.
