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

Stripe Terminal helps our users extend their online presence to the physical world. The Terminal team’s mission is to make it as easy for businesses to accept in-person payments as the Stripe API has done for online payments. Stripe was founded to make it easier for developers to accept payments. We’ve solved a small part of that problem, but our ambition is to go much further.

Android engineers on the Terminal team will build and enhance the Device Platform including the applications and services that run on the physical Terminal devices. This also includes building the frameworks for other engineers, both internal and external to stripe, to develop on our custom platform with ease.

What you’ll do

Responsibilities

  • Design, build and maintain Android apps and SDKs in Kotlin
  • Develop Android payment applications for a variety of devices and form factors
  • Work with engineers, product managers, designers, and stakeholders across the company to bring new features and products to Stripe’s mobile users
  • Collaborate with Android developers who work on the Stripe mobile apps and Stripe Terminal to set best practices for Android development across the company
  • Work with user research and product design to understand users and address their needs

Who you are

We’re looking for someone who meets the minimum requirements to be considered for the role. If you meet these requirements, you are encouraged to apply. The preferred qualifications are a bonus, not a requirement.

Minimum requirements

  • Have a strong technical background, with 5+ years of experience in Android development.
  • Listen well and internalize the best ideas from all over the organization while also setting a vision that others are excited to get behind
  • Prefer simple solutions and designs over complex ones, and have a good intuition for what is lasting and scalable
  • Thrive in a collaborative environment involving different stakeholders and subject matter experts
  • Can put yourself in the shoes of your users and be a steward of crafting great developer and consumer experiences

Preferred qualifications

  • Custom hardware experience on Android platform
  • Payments expertise or knowledge
  • Backend Infrastructure or services experience

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 $179,400 - $269,200. 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.
