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

The Data Infrastructure team, concentrates on creating accurate, up-to-date and reliable data sets while streamlining data accessibility for business insights. Our efforts extend to identifying and framing common data sets utilized throughout Stripe. You'll be in charge of designing a metrics platform that generates unified insights, overseeing datasets and tools for business reviews, product analytics datasets, and a metrics platform enabling data-driven decision-making.

We're seeking an experienced manager to expand our team that builds foundational data marts, pipelines, and data tooling supporting Stripe's business strategies.


  • Grow a team of data engineers to continue to scale our data pipelines and tools, drive the collection of new data and the refinement of existing data sources, and improve our data model as the Stripe product evolves.
  • Act as a player/coach; still being close to the details of the work that the team is doing, but primarily supporting your team members to help amplify and multiply the effects of their individual work.
  • Build relationships with Stripe product teams and leadership, data analysts, and data scientists to generalize data needs and guide the roadmaps of our internal products.
  • You will set strategy, vision, and roadmap for the data space at Stripe.
  • Develop a technical roadmap to highlight key areas of improvement that are critical for the team to invest in internally to maximize our future execution velocity.
  • Mentor and grow your team across technical architecture, partnership with stakeholders, project management, and a strong internal product sense.

Who you are

Minimum requirements

  • 10+ years of software engineering or data engineering, including at least 3+ years of management experience.
  • You have experience building and managing data engineering teams. You have ideated, built products contributing to data infrastructure and driven company wide adoption of such products.
  • You have experience building APIs, products, and complex data systems at scale.
  • You have a degree in computer science, mathematics or any related field, or equivalent software engineering experience.
  • You have solid written and verbal communication skills and are skilled at precisely articulating user problems.

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 US base salary range for this role is $203,900 - $305,900. 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 location. Applicants interested in this role and who are not located in the US may request the annual salary range for their location during the interview process.

Additional benefits for this role may include: equity, company bonus or sales commissions/bonuses; 401(k) plan; medical, dental, and vision benefits; and wellness stipends.
