The Developer Productivity group is responsible for making Stripe’s developers happy and productive. We work on tools, processes, and code refactoring to accelerate Stripe engineering as Stripe scales.
We’re looking for people with a strong background in and interest in building language processing tools and language specific developer tools. The ideal candidate will have a mix of technical expertise in language processing, a passion for solving developer experience problems, and a pragmatic ability to ship results iteratively.
The workflow engine team owns the platform that makes it easier and faster to write stateful workflows in a reliable, fault-oblivious way while abstracting the distributed systems complexities associated with it. This platform powers products such as Stripe Capital and Billing, as well as the control plane of our cloud instances. Our platform must meet an extremely high bar for usability, reliability, and efficiency.
