Frontend Engineer

Stripe in San Francisco, CA

As Stripe looks beyond the API, we are hiring engineers to help build beautiful, usable interfaces for businesses building on top of Stripe. From constructing checkout workflows to routing money and making sophisticated reports, Stripe aims to provide great interfaces for understanding your business, fulfilling customers’ needs, and creating secure, usable payment forms. Stripe’s frontend libraries are loaded hundreds of times per second and account for tens of millions of dollars per day in online payments.

You might work on:

  • The new version of Stripe.js, Elements and Checkout. You’ll write code that Stripe’s users deploy to build powerful, performant, fraud-fighting checkout forms. Because Stripe.js runs in other people’s forms, globally, and across many different browsers, you’ll deal with tight performance constraints and bundle sizes. You’ll work on everything from build optimizations to API design to multi-frame platform abstractions to browser-specific animation tweaks, all in service of giving Stripe’s users less to worry about.

  • The Stripe Dashboard, which is Stripe’s single page application for running a business on the internet. What started out as a simple payments dashboard has grown to include business insights, account configuration and onboarding, security tools, Radar, Atlas, Subscriptions, Relay, and every other product Stripe is building. Frontend engineers at Stripe work both on the platform for the Dashboard and on individual products themselves.

  • Support platform that powers our high-quality, high-touch support experience through products like live chat, click-to-call phone support, dynamic and contextual contact forms, and measure our success through quick customer satisfaction surveys.

  • Stripe’s vast array of internal tools, including Stripe Admin, used across teams to investigate merchants and charges, and Stripe Home, where Stripes go to learn about events, other Stripes, operating principles, and search our ever-growing internal knowledge base. Stripe amplifies its efficiency through investment in internal tools, and each of those tools has its own unique set of frontend engineering challenges and a tight feedback loop of approachable internal users.

  • Frontend experiences for Connect that make it as easy as possible to participate in the Internet economy and receive money online. Some of Stripe’s largest users are platforms that connect senders of payments with receivers of payments. Lyft connects riders to drivers, Kickstarter connects backers to projects, and Squarespace connects shoppers to online stores. All of them participate in doing business online, and all of them directly or indirectly use Stripe.

You may be a fit for this role if you:

  • Can empathize with the many different types of users who use Stripe’s UIs
  • Enjoy building UIs with modern tools like ES6, React, Redux, PostCSS, Flow, and Webpack
  • Can think through customer requirements to come up with high-impact ways of quickly solving their problems
  • Care deeply about performance, accessibility, and API design
  • Have a high bar for quality of code and quality of user experience
  • Are comfortable working in a large frontend codebase with many stakeholders
  • Care about the details
