We’re looking for a leader to help grow and guide a high impact, high leverage, and high visibility team that supports the productivity of Stripe engineers working on frontend code. The team creates and supports frontend services, tools, and practices used by Stripe engineers every day. This includes work to support frontend development workflows; to expand and improve frontend testing capabilities; to maintain a high bar for the quality and reliability of frontend code; and to generally identify and eliminate rough edges in the frontend development lifecycle. 

We work with several million lines of code (and counting), used by hundreds of engineers around the globe. Though our remit is frontend, our work typically spans many layers of the stack across all the languages used at Stripe. What we do is key to allowing Stripe engineers to have the most productive time of their careers while building and running the features that Stripe and our customers need in order to thrive.

You will:

  • Work with other Stripe leaders to design and lead developer productivity best practices
  • Empower the engineering team to achieve a high level of technical productivity, reliability, and simplicity
  • Recruit great engineers, in collaboration with Stripe’s recruiting team
  • Help engineers advance in their careers and develop new skills
  • Contribute to engineering-wide initiatives as a member of Stripe’s engineering management team

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • 2+ years of people management experience
  • Hands-on experience building tools that are used daily by other developers
  • A passion for supporting developer productivity 
  • Successfully recruited and built great teams
  • The ability to thrive on a high level of autonomy and responsibility
  • Clear and persuasive writing and in-person communication

It would be great if:

  • You are familiar with modern frontend toolchains (eg. Babel, Webpack, TypeScript, Jest) and development workflows
  • You have managed teams that designed and operated critical infrastructure, particularly with a broad remit across core capabilities, builds, and quality
  • You are empathetic to customer needs but visionary enough to not just deliver a faster horse
  • You are comfortable planning in quarters, and can set a vision for several years
  • You are excited about collaborating with teammates across Stripe’s organization, to provide a wonderful user experience for key developer workflows
  • You are comfortable working with geographically distributed teams
