As Stripe launches Stripe Terminal, we are hiring engineers to build our fleet of payment terminals for the physical checkout experience. The Terminal Reader team builds and enhances the Reader payment application - the software running on the Stripe Payment Terminal that connects customers in physical stores to the Stripe ecosystem. We are accountable for the quality, reliability and security of this interaction.

The Terminal Reader team partners with the Stripe design, product, infrastructure, logistics and support teams to give world class in-store experiences to our customers. We are passionate about elevating in-store payments to the same high standard we apply to the online and mobile experience.
