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

The primary goals of the team are to ensure compliance for Stripe and our merchants across the tax liabilities that incur as a result of fees for services and goods. To achieve this means being plugged into every part of the organization where a transaction occurs. Our team works cross-functionally and with large datasets of information to ensure that Stripe and its merchants meet all relevant tax requirements in an efficient and timely manner.

What you’ll do

As a Software Engineer, you will design and build platforms, tooling, and system solutions that are configurable and scalable around the globe. You will partner with many functions at Stripe, with the opportunity to both work on infrastructure/platform systems, as well as produce direct user-facing business impact.

Responsibilities

  • Design, build, and maintain large-scale production services, data pipelines and streaming systems
  • Work on systems critical to Stripe’s current and future operation, with responsibility for billions of dollars of payments volume
  • Debug production issues across services and multiple levels of the stack
  • Collaborate with stakeholders across the company including engineering, product, operations, finance, data science, accounting, sales, and operations.
  • Improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes

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.

Minimum requirements

  • Have delivered, extended, and maintained large scale distributed systems.
  • Love to design systems that are elegant abstractions over complex patterns/practices, especially in the financial industry.
  • Hold yourself and others to a high bar when working with production systems.
  • Take pride in working on projects to successful completion involving a wide variety of technologies and systems.
  • Think about systems, services, and platforms, and write high quality code. We work mostly in Java, Scala, and Ruby. However, languages can be learned: we care much more about your general engineering skill than knowledge of a particular language or framework.
  • Thrive in a collaborative environment involving different stakeholders and subject matter experts.
  • Enjoy working with a diverse group of people with different expertise (for example, ¼ of Stripes work in a country that’s different from the one they grew up in).

Preferred qualifications

  • Domain experience in fintech or a regulated industry
  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or similar relevant background
  • Experience working in a geographically distributed company
