The Incident Ops team is a global 24/7 team responsible for driving incident response and management from detection to resolution. Stripe is proud of its five 9s reliability and this team is at the forefront of ensuring we keep it that way - working hand-in-hand with Reliability Eng and across the Tech Org. This team of incident response managers (IRM) is defined by our sense of ownership and how we drive incidents to resolution - marshaling the necessary cross-functional resources to respond to and resolve service outages, critical bugs, security attacks and anything that significantly impacts the users of our products. The team is user-first and ensures appropriate external communications from Stripe and senior management to keep our users informed of disruption to their experience of Stripe. The team is skilled in program management, communications, incident handling and technical adeptness as incidents can arise from anywhere and cut across products and orgs in Stripe.
As the leader of Incident Ops, you’ll build a world class incident response and demand a high bar of reliability expected of Stripe. You’ll work hand-in-hand with leaders in Reliability Eng and Tech Orgs to transform how we detect, respond to incidents, communicate to users, improve related tooling and measure impact. You will lead and nurture a high-performing 24/7 global IRM team that has a strong sense of urgency, skilled program ownership of incidents and comms, with drive to rally engineers to their cause and technical expertise to understand impact. As a result, you’ll be seen as the protector of our users - in minimizing the impact of incidents on their business and ensuring that Stripe is always thinking of our users.
