Stripe was founded to make it easier for developers to accept payments. We’ve solved a small part of that problem, but our ambition is to go much further. For businesses, it’s still too hard to collect payments in every language, currency, payment method, and tax system. Mobile is an area of important investment for Stripe, and our mobile SDKs are one of the primary touch points for app-centric businesses that use Stripe. Companies like Doordash, Instacart, GOAT, and Kickstarter all use Stripe to power an incredible diversity of experiences in their Android apps.
This role is critical, not only for the merchants that use Stripe for their mobile apps, but their users as well. We’re looking for engineers with a deep understanding of the Android platform to help define Stripe’s future role in mobile apps.
- Design, build and maintain Android SDKs in Kotlin
- Work with engineers, product managers, designers, and stakeholders across the company to bring new features and products to Stripe’s mobile SDKs
- Collaborate with Android developers who work on the Stripe mobile apps and Stripe Terminal to set best practices for Android development across the company
You may be fit for this role if you:
- Have a strong technical background, with 5+ years of experience in Android development. Ideally, you’ve had some experience building SDK products or contributing to open-source libraries, and appreciate the art of API design
- Listen well and internalize the best ideas from all over the organization while also setting a vision that others are excited to get behind
- Prefer simple solutions and designs over complex ones, and have a good intuition for what is lasting and scalable
- Thrive in a collaborative environment involving different stakeholders and subject matter experts
- Can put yourself in the shoes of your users and be a steward of crafting great developer and consumer experiences
You should include these in your application:
- A description of your work history in the form of a resume or LinkedIn profile
- [optional] If you’ve published apps or worked on open source mobile projects in the past, please include a link and description
