Stripe is the best way to accept payments online and in mobile apps. They handle billions of dollars every year for forward-thinking businesses around the world.
Who they are
Stripe think that building an internet business is a problem rooted in code and design, not finance. Their developer-friendly APIs let users focus on building great products. They love the web, and care deeply about beautiful code, APIs, and documentation. They really like startups and building products—the people at Stripe have previously helped start Skype, Lala, Act Blue, Kickoff, Interstate, Auctomatic, Encyclopedia, GazeHawk, and Wesabe. Stripe’s investors include Sequoia Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, and PayPal co-founders Peter Thiel, Max Levchin, and Elon Musk.
Stripe currently powers businesses in 25 countries. They work from around the world in nine global offices and many more Stripes work remotely from anywhere (including Anchorage, Alaska and Cannock in England).
