Design at Stripe
We believe there are too many barriers to doing business on the internet, and that opportunities are not equally distributed throughout the world. We also think building and growing a business online is a problem rooted in code, language, and design—not finance.
Stripe’s mission is to increase the GDP of the internet and expand economic access globally. We’re designing tools and infrastructure to help our users start, run, and scale an online business from anywhere in the world. That’s where you come in: we’re looking for a diverse set of designers of many disciplines, skills, backgrounds, and specialties to join our growing Design team.
The Design team works across many types of product initiatives at Stripe—from our brand voice and websites to events, web and mobile products, primary qualitative and quantitative research, and even printed publications. And since Stripe’s main audience is other people who build products, we agonize over and take pride in crafting user-friendly and user-focused experiences.
About the Climate team and the role
Last year, Stripe announced a Negative Emissions Commitment, a first-of-its-kind annual contribution of $1mm to fund carbon removal technologies. We’re going beyond this commitment by building a world-class climate program into the core of Stripe’s products, available to all of our users around the world. This is a brand new product involving new technical and financial systems to support carbon removal technologies. This new product is both a software and operational challenge at the forefront of climate impact, with potential for tremendous scale across Stripe’s user base.
The Stripe Climate team is making it incredibly easy for our users to help combat climate change. As the founding designer on the team, you’ll play a critical role shaping and shipping our first product(s). Given the early stage of the team, this role requires remarkable breadth — from designing the user experiences across multiple product surfaces to brand and communications design. If you’re excited about making an impact on climate change and being part of a small and scrappy team to get something off the ground, we want to hear from you!
