About the team

The Finance Engineering team is at the core of Stripe to empower mission-critical financial domains including Accounting, Finance & Strategy, and Treasury. Engineers on the Financial Engineering team build platforms, data pipelines, and financial products for the Finance team led by Stripe’s CFO. The use cases include financial analytics and insights, accounting automation, auditing, financial planning & forecasting, and financial business intelligence. 

What you'll do


  • Design, build, and maintain large-scale services, data pipelines, tooling and systems for the Finance team led by Stripe’s CFO. Make direct business impact in some of Stripe’s most mission critical business domains including Accounting, Finance & Strategy, Treasury, and Business Operations. 
  • Build watertight controls across pipelines to ensure super high accuracy for all financial transactions (hundreds of billions of dollars). Ensure accurate, reliable, and timely financial reporting delivered to a single source-of-truth financial data warehouse
  • Work in a collaborative environment involving different stakeholders and subject matter experts

Who you are

We’re looking for people with a strong background or interest in building successful products or systems; you’re passionate about solving business problems and making direct impact on customers, you are comfortable in dealing with lots of moving pieces; and you’re comfortable learning new technologies and systems.

Minimum requirements

  • Have delivered production systems of big scale
  • Write high quality code. We work mostly in Scala, Java, and Javascript. However, languages can be learned: we care much more about your general engineering skill than knowledge of a particular language or framework.
  • Are interested in solving business problems for Stripe’s Finance team.

Preferred qualifications

  • Experiences with big-data technologies such as Spark, Presto, Kafka, and Flink, and OLAP preferred

Note that It’s not expected that any single candidate would have expertise across all of these areas. If you are a solid engineer and eager to work on financial related platforms/products, we are eager to talk to you.
