Stripe was founded in 2010 by two brothers, Stripe has capitalized on the potential of the online economy. They hope that by removing the barriers to online commerce, they can help more new businesses get started, help expedite growth for existing companies, and increase economic output and trade globally. Stripe has offices and clients around the world, with 14 global offices and millions of Stripe users.
Stripe’s Summer Internship Program
Stripe offers 12- and 16-week internships, housing included, to undergraduate and graduate students in the summer at all of their hub offices: San Francisco, Seattle, Dublin, and Singapore. Stripe does not believe internships are an opportunity to “pay your dues”, but instead believes in fully integrating with other Stripes and working on meaningful projects. Stripe interns fix real problems and help real users.
Internship applications run from August to February, but the earlier you apply, the better. Furthermore, there is much potential for a full-time position stemming from your internship as the majority of Stripe’s new grad hires are former interns.
