About The Team

Onboarding is the front door of Stripe. As the first impression users

have of Stripe, we play a critical role in building and maintaining user

trust. We care about the end-to-end journey of a new user signing up,

activating payments and other features, and keeping businesses compliant

as regulations and financial partners evolve over time. Stripe will

succeed at our mission of increasing the GDP of the internet only if we

succeed in tailoring our onboarding process to be as simple as possible

while adapting to the enormous growth in complexity in the types of

businesses we can support in the global financial marketplace.

Onboarding sits at the center of regulatory compliance, fraud and risk,

security, and marketing, and we work thoughtfully to balance these

scales in order to provide the minimal amount of user friction to

businesses looking to use Stripe to access the global internet economy.
