Stripe’s next engineering hub is remote

Companies like GitLab and Zapier are 💯 remote. Stripe’s next engineering push, colocated in what they call “hubs,” will be a new style of hub — remote. Stripe has engineering hubs in San Francisco, Seattle, Dublin, and Singapore. We are establishing a fifth hub that is less traditional but no less important: Remote. We are doing this to situate product development closer to our customers, improve our ability to tap the 99.74% of talented engineers living outside the metro areas of our first four hubs, and further our mission of increasing the GDP of the internet. Stripe will hire over a hundred remote engineers this year. They will be deployed across every major engineering workstream at Stripe.

We have seen such promising results from our remote engineers that we are greatly increasing our investment in remote engineering.
