Who we are

About Stripe

Stripe is a financial infrastructure platform for businesses. Millions of companies – from the world’s largest enterprises to the most ambitious startups – use Stripe to accept payments, grow their revenue, and accelerate new business opportunities.

About the team

Stripe is building in-person payments products, such as Stripe Terminal, to enable Stripe users to extend their online presence into the physical world and help all merchants create a unified commerce experience. This enables businesses to unlock in-person payments experiences that are best suited for their business model—whether it’s creating a flagship retail experience, unifying their online and offline commerce, or enabling a consumer mobile device to accept payments. The Terminal Partnerships team is part of the Global Partnerships organization and is responsible for developing and managing relationships that enable Stripe to launch and scale Terminal globally. Our team executes on high-impact, cross-functional initiatives that enable new product experiences and growth areas for Stripe Terminal through our partnerships. 

In 2022, we considerably expanded our Terminal footprint across 4 continents  and enabled merchants to benefit from the return to in-person commerce at a global scale. We also launched a groundbreaking way to accept payments using mobile devices with the launch of Tap to Pay on iPhone. This is only the beginning as we drive Stripe Terminal to new levels of usability and reach in 2023 and beyond.
