Stripe, San Francisco office 510 Townsend St. Get Directions
I have been working at Stripe full-time (Less than a year)
Stripe is a workplace teeming with brilliant people across all functions, and especially so in technical roles. Thanks to its highly collaborative nature, all of these people are happy and willing to take the time to help teach you and grow. Transparency and clear direction from are also very obviously valued by leadership which makes it easy to understand why and when big things will happen.
The main downside is that while there are a bevy of bright people and resources available to learn, the fast paced nature of the company can easily leave you behind growth and learning unless you take the time to seize it yourself. Managers are willing to fund and guide towards useful growth opportunities but the time commitment and initiative need to be self-driven.
Advice to Management
Keep up the time consuming efforts at transparency, this really separates you from competing companies that are larger in scale. And try and help non-engineers have dedicated time to learn and grow in their roles, help them gain the leverage that the engineers are achieving.

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Stripe (San Francisco, CA (US)) in March 2020.
30m phone screen. 1h tech skill screen share coding through a problem via Zoom.
Then silence. Was promised a response within 48 hours. Tried following up for update and no reply. Heard word elsewhere there’s a hiring freeze due to Coronavirus. Don’t fault Stripe—would still reapply after the freeze is lifted. But I think the recruiter could have been more professional and informed of the freeze halting the process.
