Stripe builds the economic infrastructure for the internet. Building trust between banks, businesses & customers is a key ingredient for Stripe to be successful. Unfortunately, fraudsters & bad actors erode that trust.
The Fraud Intelligence team builds backend and machine learning (ML) systems to reduce fraud while retaining a best-in-class user experience. Our work directly impacts Stripe’s bottom line, and we help build a safer financial backbone for the internet. 

Here are some of the problems you will be tackling:
  • As Stripe grows its footprint, how do we build risk engineering systems that scale?
  • How do we fingerprint a fraudster’s activity across Stripe?
  • How do we detect an unusual pattern of accessing Stripe?
You will have an outsized impact on the direction, design & implementation of the solutions to these problems.

Your work will include:
  • Setting the technical & process direction for the team based on business goals
  • Proposing and implementing product ideas that directly reduce Stripe’s fraud losses
  • Building systems that evaluate businesses for risk and take appropriate actions
  • Leading our partner teams to launch new policies that directly impact Stripe’s bottom line
  • Helping engineers across the company to develop technologies for scaling our infrastructure
  • Debugging production issues across services and multiple levels of the stack


You may be a good fit if you:
  • Have at least 7 years of software engineering experience
  • Have led multiple engineers to deliver large-scale high-impact projects
  • Enjoy and have experience building scalable backend infrastructure
  • Hold yourself and others to a high bar when working with production systems
  • Thrive in a collaborative environment
  • [Bonus] Have experience in Python, Scala (Spark), or Ruby
  • [Bonus] Have experience in interfacing with ML systems
