Backend / API Engineer, Admin Platform
San Francisco, CA, US
North America
Job Description / Skills Required

Stripe Admin is an internal platform which is relied upon by Stripe employees globally for every part of their job: from talking with our users to launching a new feature. Admin is an integral part of how we move quickly in service of our users.

We believe Stripe employees deserve best-in-class tools and treat our fellow Stripes as power users. We make it easy for engineers at Stripe to quickly build high-quality, and secure-by-default internal tools using the same high standards that power external products like our Dashboard. 

We’re looking for a senior engineer with a strong interest in building secure-by-default and ergonomic developer libraries and frameworks. The ideal candidate will have a mix of technical expertise in building developer platforms, a passion for solving developer experience problems, and a pragmatic ability to ship results iteratively.

You will:

  • Work with a team of technically sophisticated engineers who make developer experience their first priority.

  • Own solutions from end to end, managing complexity and engaging directly with stakeholders to think through everything from success metrics, to the ergonomics of individual API’s.

  • Use both qualitative and quantitative metrics to determine priorities and measure effectiveness.

  • Debug production issues across services and multiple levels of the stack.

  • Uphold Stripe’s high standards for engineering and product quality and mentor newer team members to do the same.

You may be fit for this role if you:

  • Take delight in crafting ergonomic and secure-by-default developer abstractions.

  • Hold yourself and others to a high bar when working with production systems.

  • Take pride in working on projects to successful completion involving a wide variety of technologies and systems.

  • Thrive in a collaborative environment involving different stakeholders and subject matter experts.
