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

The Streaming Infrastructure team builds and operates the streaming platform that enables the flow of data between diverse systems at Stripe and serves as a backbone of Stripe infrastructure. The team is developing a globally distributed event bus to support Stripe’s growing scalability, reliability, and product requirements. We enable other teams at Stripe by creating simple abstractions and providing self-service tooling and dashboards to enable users to easily operate services on our infrastructure. We minimize operational toil for the team through regular investment in automation of maintenance operations.

We’re looking for people with a strong background (or interest!) in event-driven streaming architectures and who are excited about solving challenging distributed systems problems.

We have a few dozen infrastructure engineers today spread across several different teams, and you’ll work with other infrastructure engineers as well as the product engineers who use the systems we build.

  • Build a great developer experience by creating simple abstractions and providing self-service tooling and dashboards to enable users to easily operate services on our infrastructure
  • Work with various stakeholders at Stripe to understand their specific requirements and identify opportunities to better leverage our streaming infrastructure
