Stripe is a set of tools for building and running an internet business. We help businesses accept payments from anyone, anywhere, and build new kinds of companies like Lyft or Kickstarter. Internally, we say our goal is to increase the GDP of the internet---we want to bring more businesses online worldwide.
Headquartered in San Francisco, Stripe has 9 global offices and hundreds of people working to help transform how modern businesses are built and run. We help power millions of businesses in 100+ countries and across nearly every industry. We handle billions of dollars every year for forward-thinking businesses around the world. One third of Americans bought something on Stripe in the last year.
In everything we do, we put our users first. We work hard to build the cleanest, most robust APIs possible so that our users can focus on building great products. There's always something more we can do---we're constantly seeking out areas of our product we can improve.
We're building a company with folks from all sorts of backgrounds, who make great coworkers and who share and exemplify a few core values: people who are humble, respectful, inclusive, and ready to roll up their sleeves and get important work done for our users. If that's you, we'd love to talk!
How We Work
We want to build a work environment where people are happy, productive, and interact well.
Personal interaction in particular is something we emphasize a lot. We work hard to find people who make others want to be around them. We know we’re doing a good job of hiring so long as we see people continuing to join simply to work with those who are already here.
We’re quite transparent internally. This helps everyone make better local decisions and avoid split-brain behavior. (Plus, we hire curious people, so they generally want to know the details of what’s going on.)
We are committed to building an actively inclusive work environment that makes Stripe an excellent home for everyone—regardless of gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, education, age, or other personal characteristics. We work on broadening our diversity because we think it’s simply the right thing to do. We want to include people, be a spectacular home for them to be themselves, and enable them to do great work.
For more on how we work, we’ve put together this quick guide about our culture today.
Stripe is working on creating a better economic future for everyone and we apply many of the same principles in accomplishing that goal to supporting all Stripes, at work and beyond.
We strive to provide a thoughtful and balanced set of benefits that allows Stripes be their best selves and do great work. Whether that be offering comprehensive health plans, supporting Stripes’ financial futures, providing support for major life moments, or making sure Stripes have access to healthy, delicious food at the office, our robust programs put Stripes and their families first.
Come work with us, and help us create economic access for entrepreneurs and enterprises all over the world.
