Who we are

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

Our marketing systems team is on a mission to build the most measurable, cross-channel messaging capability possible, to attract and engage customers. We will do this through scalable motions, with the most relevant messaging and increasing reach of our marketing motions. We are a cross functional team of engineers, analysts, marketers, and product managers that deliver the insights, internal systems and tools that fuel Stripe’s growth.

As part of the Marketing Systems team, you will own systems that power go-to-market motions productizing gathered insights and intelligence. This includes building tools that will power better digital experiences, accelerate customer journey with intelligent orchestrations, drive smarter decisions with CDP, and improve marketer and seller productivity.

What you’ll do


  • Design, build, and maintain beautiful, robust, and high-performance APIs and services.
  • Ensure our infrastructure is extensible, scalable, reliable, and meets SLAs for both external and internal users
  • Hide complexity from our users behind simple yet powerful abstractions.
  • Partner closely with other engineers, analysts and scientists to build highly scalable system(s), to deliver delightful developer experiences and comprehensive interfaces
  • Build the APIs that power internal stakeholder facing UI experiences, defining composable data models and durable interfaces.
  • Debug production issues across services and multiple levels of the stack with an eye towards improving maintainability over the long term.
  • Improve engineering standards, tooling, and processes

Who you are

We’re looking for someone who meets the minimum requirements to be considered for the role. If you meet these requirements, you are encouraged to apply. The preferred qualifications are a bonus, not a requirement.

Minimum requirements

  • 5+ years of experience designing, implementing, and operating large-scale, high-performance APIs and services.
  • You have implemented server-side APIs in dynamic languages like Ruby, working with document and relational datastores (especially Mongo and MySQL).
  • You enjoy spelunking through new datasets (especially in systems like Redshift or Presto/Trino).
  • Empathetic, collaborative, and user-first mindset in everything you build.
  • Experience proactively seeking feedback from users, teammates, and subject matter experts.
  • The skills to build holistically – from specs and documentation to implementation, testing, deployment, and measuring impact.
  • The ability to balance speed, complexity, and scope in service of user needs.
  • You have excellent oral and written communication.

Preferred qualifications

  • Experience in marketing domain building products that contribute to marketing tech stack.
  • Experience with machine learning, recommender systems, product-led growth, and/or lifecycle marketing.
  • Prior experience building distributed systems or a microservices architecture

This role is available either in an office or a remote location (typically, 35+ miles or 56+ km from a Stripe office).

Office-assigned Stripes spend at least 50% of the time in a given month in their local office or with users. This hits a balance between bringing people together for in-person collaboration and learning from each other, while supporting flexibility about how to do this in a way that makes sense for individuals and their teams.

A remote location, in most cases, is defined as being 35 miles (56 kilometers) or more from one of our offices. While you would be welcome to come into the office for team/business meetings, on-sites, meet-ups, and events, our expectation is you would regularly work from home rather than a Stripe office. Stripe does not cover the cost of relocating to a remote location. We encourage you to apply for roles that match the location where you currently or plan to live.

The annual salary range for this role in the primary location is C$172,000 - C$258,000. This range may change if you are hired in another location. For sales roles, the range provided is the role’s On Target Earnings (“OTE”) range, meaning that the range includes both the sales commissions/sales bonuses target and annual base salary for the role. This salary range may be inclusive of several career levels at Stripe and will be narrowed during the interview process based on a number of factors, including the candidate’s experience, qualifications, and specific location. Applicants interested in this role and who are not located in the primary location may request the annual salary range for their location during the interview process.

Specific benefits and details about what compensation is included in the salary range listed above will vary depending on the applicant’s location and can be discussed in more detail during the interview process. Benefits/additional compensation for this role may include: equity, company bonus or sales commissions/bonuses; retirement plans; health benefits; and wellness stipends.
