Job Description

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. Our mission is to increase the GDP of the internet, and we have a staggering amount of work ahead. That means you have an unprecedented opportunity to put the global economy within everyone's reach while doing the most important work of your career.

About the team

We’re looking for an experienced regulatory compliance professional to help our North America regulatory compliance team. In this role, you will coordinate with Stripe’s Legal, Financial Crimes, Finance, Accounting, Internal Systems, and Security teams, to (i) coordinate and submit regulatory license applications, renewals and maintenance; (ii) assist with regulatory exams conducted in the US and (iii) support our regulatory affairs program for certain licensed US entities.

As a regulated business, our second line of defense team plays a critical role in ensuring Stripe effectively manages our regulatory obligations and fosters a culture of compliance. You will play a key role in the development of Stripe’s US regulatory compliance program. The role provides an excellent opportunity for a talented candidate to deploy their cross-functional compliance program management skills in a fast-paced and rigorous environment, enhance their compliance expertise, and carve out opportunities to grow and develop. The successful candidate will gain wide ranging exposure to Stripe's diverse range of business lines, senior leadership, and the governance and workings of the organization.

The ideal candidate will be a self-starter who is exceptionally organized, thorough and detail-oriented, with a background in financial services, payments, or other heavily regulated sectors. In this role, you will get a chance to help build, enhance, mature and evolve our regulatory licensing and exam programs and be a key cross-functional partner. Stripe is both a technology company and a financial services company, and you will need to be comfortable in both worlds.

What you’ll do

The North America Regulatory Affairs Specialist will help to ensure that all of the relevant components of the regulatory affairs program for licensed entities in the US remain current and compliant, and assist in managing and executing US regulatory examinations.


  • Coordinate responses to state regulatory inquiries, filings, forms, applications, renewals, surety bonds, and anything else required for license maintenance 
  • Assist the team in preparing for independent program assessments or state regulatory exams, as well as monitoring the implementation of any remediation items 
  • Stay abreast of changes to licensing regulations that apply to Stripe and communicate regulatory changes and business impacts to senior management and business stakeholders 
  • Establish and maintain relationships with internal and external partners and business units, relevant state and local agencies, licensing consultants, and outside counsel 
  • Work proactively with Legal, Finance, Financial Crimes, Product, and other key stakeholders on addressing regulatory risks related to Stripe’s licensing and examination program 
  • Support any end-to-end license applications or ad hoc inquiries as required in partnership with Stripe’s international regulatory and compliance teams 
  • Engage in special projects in support of the regulatory compliance program

Who you are

We're looking for someone who meets the minimum requirements to be considered for the role. If you meet these requirements, you are encouraged to apply. The preferred qualifications are a bonus, not a requirement.

Minimum requirements

  • Bachelor’s degree in Finance, Political Science, Economics, or a related field 
  • 5+ years experience in financial services, with significant experience in payments— familiarity with money transmitter statutes, NMLS, the BSA, and other areas of financial services, such as lending 
  • A history of professional achievement, including excellent academic credentials and success at a payments startup, financial institution, public sector, law enforcement agency, or top in-house legal department 
  • The ability to effectively and credibly communicate with senior executives, regulators and other stakeholders 
  • Great interpersonal skills, good judgment, and the ability to work effectively with a wide variety of people inside and outside the company
  • Robust communication skills

Hybrid work at Stripe

Office-assigned Stripes spend at least 50% of the time in a given month in their local office or with users. This hits a balance between bringing people together for in-person collaboration and learning from each other, while supporting flexibility about how to do this in a way that makes sense for individuals and their teams.

Pay and benefits

The annual US base salary range for this role is $128,800 - $193,200. For sales roles, the range provided is the role’s On Target Earnings ("OTE") range, meaning that the range includes both the sales commissions/sales bonuses target and annual base salary for the role. This salary range may be inclusive of several career levels at Stripe and will be narrowed during the interview process based on a number of factors, including the candidate’s experience, qualifications, and location. Applicants interested in this role and who are not located in the US may request the annual salary range for their location during the interview process.

Additional benefits for this role may include: equity, company bonus or sales commissions/bonuses; 401(k) plan; medical, dental, and vision benefits; and wellness stipends.
