What you’ll do

As a People Specialist, you’ll help make Stripe a great place to work and grow. You’ll partner with, coach, enable and advise Stripe’s people managers on all things people-related: performance management and coaching, career development, employee relations, leveling, manager effectiveness, career development, navigating change, and more.

  • Advise and coach managers on Stripe’s People policies and best practices, in collaboration with People Partners, program leaders, and counsel as necessary
  • Partner with legal counsel and external consultants as needed to advise managers on complex or sensitive issues and to help ensure Stripe’s compliance with federal, state, and local labor regulations (wage regulations, equal employment opportunity laws, etc.)
  • Enable and support managers to help ensure a frictionless roll out of People programs, including front line manager support for performance review cycles, compensation cycles, employee engagement surveys, top talent and adhoc programs
  • Identify and recommend scalable and efficient solutions to drive improvements in people processes, asking for input or buy-in from managers and leaders as needed
  • Ensure excellent employee experiences through key life cycle stages, including onboarding and departure processes
  • Analyze workforce or program data and present trends and insights to managers or HR partners; manage tracking and reporting of certain people data to inform team strategy
  • Lead with empathy and champion a culture of humility, optimism, belonging and inclusivity.

Office-assigned Stripes in most of our locations are currently expected to spend at least 50% of the time in a given month in their local office or with users. This expectation may vary depending on role, team and location. For example, Stripes in our Bucharest, Romania site have an 80% in-office expectation, and those in Stripe Delivery Center roles in Mexico City, Mexico and Bengalaru, India work 100% from the office. Also, some teams have greater in-office attendance requirements, to appropriately support our users and workflows, which the hiring manager will discuss. This approach helps strike a balance between bringing people together for in-person collaboration and learning from each other, while supporting flexibility when possible.

Stripe does not yet include pay ranges in job postings in every country. Stripe strongly values pay transparency and is working toward pay transparency globally.
