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

Our team owns open-source SDKs that reflect the Stripe API in seven different programming languages. A vast majority of server-side Stripe integrations are built using our open-source SDKs. Our team also owns an in-house code generation framework which is used to generate not just the SDKs, but the code snippets in our documentation and the commands in Stripe Shell which is an  in-browser version of the Stripe CLI. 

We are dedicated to providing a world class experience for developers using our SDKs.. We influence how APIs are authored at Stripe so that they get represented in a user friendly way in SDKs and documentation. We want to collaborate with and help our friends in the Stripe community who build and maintain SDKs in programming languages that we do not support.

What you’ll do

In this role, you’ll have an opportunity to shape the experience of developers using Stripe SDKs that power over 80% of the payment volume at Stripe. In this team you will:

  • Collaborate with various Stripe teams to release their APIs in the SDKs
  • Design and implement new Stripe API patterns
  • Help streamline the API authoring process at Stripe
  • Improve the efficiency of SDK release process 
  • Support our users reaching out to us on the open source GitHub repositories for our SDKs
  • Add support for new language features in SDKs
  • Help lead Stripe's API design process, providing guidance to product teams as they seek to produce powerful and intuitive abstractions that are surfaced through our SDKs
  • Plan and work towards a future where we open source parts of our code generation framework to make it easier for third party Stripe SDK owners to maintain their libraries
  • Influence the team’s strategy and roadmap through feedback-driven proposals, and direct engagement with our developer community on GitHub and other channels
