Stripe is a global technology company that builds economic infrastructure for the internet. Build the core of Stripe products, services and APIs in spectacularly robust fashion. Banking Platform is crucial in helping Stripe globalize its payout capabilities by building the interfaces that allows users as well internal Stripe teams to move money. As a platform company powering businesses all over the world, Stripe processes payments, runs marketplaces, detects fraud, helps entrepreneurs start an internet business from anywhere in the world, builds world-class developer-friendly APIs, and more. We are currently on an inflection point thinking on how we make the platform 10x better. The Banking Platform team works to ensure money gets to its destinations safely, reliably and in a cost effective manner. As Stripe expands globally, we realize that we haven’t won yet, and know that successfully being able to take pay out to different countries is crucial to our progress in economic globalization. We’re investing in the Banking Platform team to run the infrastructure that supports a wide variety of bank payouts and payment methods. You’ll help abstract the rails for money and movement while rigorously understanding properties such as speed, cutoff, currency and fees.

What you’ll do

We’re looking for an experienced Staff Growth Engineer to join our team and lead initiatives focused on accelerating the growth of Stripe Billing. In this role, you will be responsible for defining and implementing data-driven strategies to improve user acquisition, adoption, and retention across many of Stripe’s user-facing surfaces. As the team’s first growth engineer, you will help foster a culture of experimentation and data-driven decision making, and define best practices that enable the team to iterate and learn in increasingly tight feedback loops. You will excel in this role if you’re a growth-focused full stack engineer who can collaborate effectively across multiple teams and functions to deliver results.

You will:

  • Lead by example by designing and implementing experiments across all of the surfaces that Billing Experiences owns, including the Stripe dashboard, hosted surfaces, and docs. 
  • Partner closely with engineering, product, and design leadership to define our growth and experimentation strategy.
  • Establish best practices, frameworks, and repeatable processes that enable us to measure the impact of every feature that we ship.
  • Foster a culture of experimentation and data-driven decision making on the team and the broader organization.
  • Build a deep understanding of our data, and identify opportunities to track additional metrics or build new data pipelines to further operationalize growth.
  • Work in a variety of languages and technologies, including Ruby, Java, Typescript, React, and GraphQL.

You may be a fit for this role if:

  • You have 10+ years of experience in full time software development, and 2+ years of experience working in a growth-focused role or team.
  • You have a deep understanding of A/B testing techniques and experimentation methodologies 
  • You can work effectively across the stack from top to bottom. You’re equally as comfortable shipping user-facing experiences as you are writing custom queries to analyze experiment results. 
  • You’re self-directed and can operate autonomously across multiple teams to deliver scaled impact.
  • You’re an effective teacher and mentor.
