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

Collecting and filing sales & indirect taxes is a classic area for technology disruption. Companies selling across countries, states, and even smaller jurisdictions have to navigate through a myriad of tax rates, product-level tax exemptions, filing requirements, and registration obligations. The rules are constantly changing, and not accurately calculating and filing tax can have legal ramifications.  

It’s no surprise then that solving for tax compliance is a top user ask. We launched Stripe Tax as a new SaaS product in 2021 to help solve this pain point and make tax compliance as effortless as possible. The Stripe Tax Experience team is entirely Europe-based and focuses on the user- and merchant-facing Stripe Tax product, with a focus on the calculations component of Stripe Tax. It’s still early days, and we’re looking for strong software engineers to help build our product and business.

 

What you’ll do

We’re looking for a seasoned technical leader with a strong background or interest in building successful products and systems. As a staff engineer, you’ll work with engineering managers, senior engineers, and cross-functional partners to design the technical underpinnings of Stripe’s newest products. At the same time, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to be hands-on building key systems, and will be directly responsible for the successful delivery of large-scale technical efforts as well acting as a technical mentor and leader for other engineers.

Responsibilities

  • Work with engineers & technical leaders across the company to ship interoperable products on strong foundations
  • Work with a wide range of systems, processes, and technologies to own and solve problems from end-to-end.
  • Build experiences for businesses that range from high growth startups to leading global companies providing them with the tools so they can run their business and not worry about tax.
  • Improve engineering standards, tooling and processes
  • Develop and lead the team to execute against both short-term and long-term roadmaps.
  • Make effective tradeoffs that consider business priorities, user experience, and a sustainable technical foundation
  • Identify, scope, and lead large technical projects, laying the groundwork for early-stage products to iteratively evolve and scale, and taming complexity and shoring up reliability of existing systems
  • Advise Stripe leadership on key technology and product roadmap considerations
  • Align our technical decisions with Stripe’s broad strategic initiatives, while also advocating for needs specific to emerging new businesses
  • Work with engineers across the company to understand when existing infrastructure can be leveraged vs. when building a bespoke solution is prudent
