To provide a missing pillar of core internet infrastructure, we hire people with a broad set of technical skills (and from a wide variety of backgrounds) who are ready to take on some of the most challenging problems in the industry from reliably handling 100M API requests per day, to building adaptive machine learning as a result of years of data science and infrastructure work, and enabling entrepreneurs worldwide to start a global internet business.We look at Stripe as a constant work in progress and the same is true of our people; for all of us, we believe the best is yet to come.
We re here to support each other in our curiosity and creativity which we pursue through thoughtful discussion and knowledge-sharing among a diverse set of peers and colleagues.We encourage all engineers to transition teams once every year and a half and also take on short-term projects with other teams across Stripe.
This enables engineers to learn how different parts of Stripe work while also establishing stronger ties and cross-pollination between groups.We contribute to existing open-source projects and the people working on them, and we release several tools as open-source.We want to work in a company of warm, inclusive people who treat their colleagues exceptionally well.

we design our space to encourage as much collaboration as possible.
We have long tables in the kitchen for a reason (to enable everyone to meet new people and learn from them).
We also have a culture of transparency that we carry through to email communication, ensuring that Stripes all around the world have the information they need to make good local decisions.In both our products and our people, we aim to reflect, represent and advocate for all of our users, globally.
Our users transcend geography, culture and language; what we share, collectively, is a drive to create a fairer, more economically interconnected world.
