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

We believe that accepting payments and building checkout experiences in mobile apps could be much easier. We’ve solved part of the problem today with our Mobile Payment Element and other products in our SDKs, but our ambition is to go much further. For businesses, it’s still too hard to collect payments in every language, currency, payment method, and tax system, all while customizing the UI to fit their apps.

Mobile is an area of important investment for Stripe, and our mobile SDKs already power an incredible diversity of experiences for companies like DoorDash, Instacart, GOAT, and Kickstarter. We’re looking for an engineer with a solid understanding of the Android platform to help define Stripe’s future on mobile.

The team is remote-first. While we do have offices throughout North America, most of the team is distributed throughout the US and Canada and gets together in-person roughly quarterly.

What you’ll do

As part of the Mobile Payments team, you’ll develop new payment APIs and checkout UI flows for Android developers to include in their apps. One project could have you implementing a new local payment method to be made available for millions of customers, and the next could have you working to make our checkout experiences more customizable for some of your favorite apps. You’ll also help us continue to explore new technologies like Jetpack Compose and coroutines as we iterate on better solutions for our users.
