We believe there are too many barriers to doing business on the internet, and that opportunities are not equally distributed throughout the world.
We also think building and growing a business online is a problem rooted in code, language, and design not finance.

The design team works across most projects at Stripe from our brand voice and websites to events, web and mobile products, and even printed publications.
