About the role

Stripe offers a suite of financial products enabling some of the world’s leading companies. We are building a platform that scales Stripe’s current and nextgen products. The role offers an exciting opportunity to shape the future of Stripe’s Platform. You will be leading a high-impact platform team that builds services and world-class APIs.

The Account Abstractions and APIs team is responsible for building the core APIs and services that create and manage account and financial data primitives. Used for onboarding customers onto Stripe products and enabling payment flows securely and reliably.

You will:

  • Work with a team of talented engineers, product managers, and designers to deliver a platform that supports all of Stripe’s products
  • Partner closely with Stripe product teams to support their specific needs while maintaining high quality and consistent platform across each offering
  • Support the engineering team in achieving a high level of technical excellence and stability
  • Manage processes to help the team do its best work and interface effectively with the rest of Stripe
  • Recruit, coach, and develop engineers
  • Contribute to engineering-wide initiatives as a member of Stripe’s engineering management team

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • Managed teams that have built and maintained APIs, microservices, and distributed systems at scale. Or, they’ve managed a team that has delivered a great product with solid foundations.
  • Passion for engineering and operational rigor
  • The capacity to work well cross-functionally and make hard decisions and tradeoffs
  • A high level of autonomy and responsibility
  • The ability to thrive in a healthy work environment that’s both supportive and challenging
  • The technical knowledge to ask engineers informed questions about architecture and product decisions
  • At least 2 years of engineering management experience

Why you should join Stripe

Stripe builds financial tools and economic infrastructure for the internet. We’re helping small startups and the world’s biggest companies build products, create business models, and scale their efforts globally. And we’d like your help.

Our customers are the most ambitious organizations in the world. Previously, they had to create an ad hoc, informally specified, bug-ridden version of financial rails before they could do business online. We are doing the difficult-but-necessary work of building a global payments and treasury network—so entrepreneurs and enterprises can concentrate on creating value, not moving money.

We operate at significant scale, but we’re still tiny relative to the opportunity. 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.
