Jobs at Stripe: Full Stack Engineer, Org Effectiveness
Org Effectiveness builds products that enhance knowledge discovery, communication, and culture for all Stripe employees, in turn helping individuals stay connected and have a greater impact.
We aim to work in a company of warm, inclusive people who treat their colleagues exceptionally well. As part of this, we deeply trust one another, enable individuals to learn and grow beyond their role, and work hard to ensure people within Stripe feel connected to each other and our collective goals.

The Org Effectiveness team exists to facilitate this. We build products like Home. Used by 99% of Stripes in any given month, Home is the source of truth for who we are, what we’re doing, and why—and a platform for enabling individuals and helping them get to know one another.

Our internal products like Home don’t face the same scale that our user-facing applications do: it’s less about the number of concurrent requests and more about the ever-changing complexity and scale of our organization. Home is inherently tied to the people at Stripe: for any particular feature we roll out, we have to consider how it affects Stripes new and tenured, based in headquarters and abroad, and people across every role; we need to balance transparency with information overload, serendipity with curated content, and crisp interfaces and team boundaries with the actual human element that makes Stripe what it is.

We’re looking for people with a background in building successful products, experimenting with new ways to structure and share information, distilling complex needs to simple interfaces, and who are comfortable learning new technologies and systems. Most importantly, we’re looking for people who are enthusiastic working with a variety of backgrounds, roles, and needs. If this sounds like you, we’d love to chat.

More Signal, Less Noise. Dealing With GitHub Notifications.
Software projects are complicated. As soon as they involve more than two people, it becomes increasingly hard to stay updated on the important things, and to reduce the noise of conversations that are irrelevant to you. If you use GitHub to manage your project, this can be twice as hard. Using only GitHub has a large number of benefits, but its notification system doesn’t exactly win prizes.
