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 Stripe Press

Stripe Press publishes books about technology, science, and economics because we believe that for many of the most significant breakthroughs in each of these categories, the key ingredient is ideas. The Stripe Press audience is global, fiercely curious, and extremely high-agency. We hope our work — which ranges in scope from books which advance a moral case for economic growth or offer models for scaling a company or engineering management, to podcasts about infrastructure — can be tools that inspire optimism, catalyze research and development, increase entrepreneurship, and ultimately, accelerate progress.

About the team

The Editorial Design team designs books, digital and physical experiences, campaigns and the brand to resonate with readers of Stripe Press. We are a small, highly collaborative team that values unique creative vision, meticulous craft and high-quality, versatile, and forward-looking visual approaches. We work closely with the publishing team, our authors, and other external partners to elevate the output of everything we do.

What you’ll do

You’ll be joining a highly creative team that spans brand, digital and book design for Stripe Press. The work is highly editorial, idea driven, and very collaborative and cross-functional.

  • Help shape the strategic vision for design that pushes the boundaries of the brand and build awareness for what we do and why it’s important to Stripe
  • Partner widely with cross-functional teams to build upon great ideas through making things
  • Give and solicit feedback from wide range of teammates and stakeholders
