Engineering at Stripe
A core part of our engineering culture is inclusiveness: we want to accommodate people from all backgrounds and walks of life.
We believe in end-to-end ownership of projects. For any given project, we have one person on point. While they don’t necessarily have to do all the work themselves, it’s their job to make sure all the work gets done.
We launch betas and prototypes as early as we can. (The first version of Stripe, for example, had a beta user since the time we could literally only charge a credit card—we couldn’t even pay out those charges!) This helps ensure that we’re building what users actually want.
We contribute back to the community, often by building things we think are cool and by releasing open-source software.
