Payment Processor Stripe Is Hiring an Engineer for its Brand New “Crypto” Team
San Francisco-based financial-technology firm Stripe is now hiring for the position of “Staff Engineer, Crypto,” according to the company's website.
“As the usage of cryptocurrency grows worldwide, it opens up new exciting avenues for businesses and individuals to transact and create value,” writes Stripe in the job description.
With the cryptocurrency space seeing a “growing need” for better building blocks to move funds, accept payments, and exchange between fiat and crypto, Stripe aims to “build faster, more trustworthy, and higher quality crypto-enabled experiences,” it added.
The company created a “brand new” team Crypto and is now looking for a Staff Engineer for this team who will design and build the core components to support crypto use cases and new developments.
The company is looking for someone with experience developing in the cryptocurrency space and will be responsible for laying “the foundation to support and inform Stripe’s crypto strategy.”
Additionally, the person chosen for this role will have to identify and resolve long-term technical challenges that range from blockchain to data storage services and API design to user experience.
The online payment processor notes that it has been supporting the crypto community since 2014 when it contributed to the Stellar Foundation and the same year started accepting Bitcoin.
Founded in 2010, Stripe raised $600 million in March this year at a valuation of $95 billion and currently provides its services in a total of 46 countries.
