Stripe is a developer-friendly way to accept payments online and in mobile apps. We process billions of dollars a year for thousands of companies of all sizes.
We think that enabling frictionless transactions is a problem rooted in code and design, not finance. Our robust, clean APIs let our users focus on building great products.
We love the web, and care deeply about beautiful code, APIs, and documentation. We really like building things—the people at Stripe have previously helped start Lala, Act Blue, Wesabe, Kickoff, Interstate, Auctomatic, GroupSpaces, Encyclopedia, and Observer.
Stripe supports 18 countries today, and we're rapidly expanding around the globe. You will be the first person on the ground in one of several countries, and you will do whatever it takes to make Stripe successful after the launch.
