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

Founders use Atlas to start a company in a few clicks, from anywhere in the world. We believe that startups are one of the most effective ways to solve the world’s problems, and our mission is to give founders a running start. Atlas helps founders incorporate and set up their company, get discounts for the internet’s best tools, and automate operations while feeling ambitious, smart, and assured. Our goal is to create more startups that get to product-market fit, fast. More than 50,000 startups have already started using Atlas.

Atlas is a small but mighty team within Stripe that moves fast to make things better for founders. In the past year, we’ve helped founders purchase their shares in a single click - no cash needed, automated 83(b) elections, and enabled founders to open a bank account and use Stripe payments even faster. We currently incorporate about 15% of US startups.
