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

  • 3+ years of full stack/backend software development experience.
  • Experience mentoring junior engineers and acting as a leader more broadly—leading by example and delivering critical feedback to uphold a high quality bar.
  • Are motivated by solving hard problems, and measure your success in terms of impact.
  • Thrive in a highly collaborative environment involving different stakeholders and subject matter experts.
  • Enjoy working with a diverse group of people with different areas of expertise.

Preferred qualifications

  • Prefer simple solutions and designs over complex ones, and have a good intuition for what will last and scale.
  • Appreciation for the importance of good documentation -- internal and external.
  • Experience with backend technologies and building scalable, reliable, low latency systems.
  • Experience with modern frontend technologies (HTML/CSS/TypeScript/React) and building delightful user interfaces
  • Have an entrepreneurial mindset.
  • Have experience gathering and using data to analyze user behavior/intent to inform future product decisions.
  • Take pride in working on projects to successful completion involving a wide variety of technologies and systems.
  • Can put yourself in the shoes of your users and be a steward of crafting great experiences.
A remote location, in most cases, is defined as being 35 miles (56 kilometers) or more from one of our offices. While you would be welcome to come into the office for team/business meetings, on-sites, meet-ups, and events, our expectation is you would regularly work from home rather than a Stripe office. Stripe does not cover the cost of relocating to a remote location. We encourage you to apply for roles that match the location where you currently or plan to live.

The annual US base salary range for this role is $150,500 - $225,700. For sales roles, the range provided is the role’s On Target Earnings ("OTE") range, meaning that the range includes both the sales commissions/sales bonuses target and annual base salary for the role. This salary range may be inclusive of several career levels at Stripe and will be narrowed during the interview process based on a number of factors, including the candidate’s experience, qualifications, and location. Applicants interested in this role and who are not located in the US may request the annual salary range for their location during the interview process.

Additional benefits for this role may include: equity, company bonus or sales commissions/bonuses; 401(k) plan; medical, dental, and vision benefits; and wellness stipends.
