To make a contribution to the world by making tools for the mind that advance humankind.
Our vision is to be earth's most customer-centric company; to build a place where people can come to find and discovery anything they want to buy online.
Move with urgency and focus
Our users entrust us with their money, their businesses, and their livelihoods. Millions of businesses around the world (individuals, startups, and large enterprises) are open for business only if we are. When we mess up, miss a deadline, or slow down, it matters. We take that responsibility seriously.
We care about being right and it often takes reasoning from first principles to get there.
Trust and amplify
By the standards of the rest of the world, we overtrust. We’re okay with that.
Stripes do what’s best for the organization overall.
The Stripe service
Through the tools that we build, we want to push the world to create better products and services.
We are micro pessimists but macro optimists.
