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 will succeed at our mission of increasing the GDP of the internet only if we continue to prove ourselves worthy of our users’ trust. Privileged Access Tooling is a newly formed security engineering team tasked with reducing sensitive access across Stripe’s infrastructure by providing intuitive and robust tools, interfaces and controls limiting sensitive access while empowering users to complete their work easily. The team will own their work end-to-end, collaborating closely with users and stakeholders to deliver state of the art solutions and increase Stripe’s security posture.

  • Design, build, and maintain core infrastructure frameworks, services and APIs used by all of Stripe’s engineering teams
  • Work with a wide range of systems, processes and technologies to own and solve problems end-to-end
  • Uphold our high engineering standards and bring consistency to the many codebases and processes you will encounter
  • Design and build solutions that will advance Stripe’s infrastructure security beyond state of the art
