Some well-known companies that use Stripe include Amazon, Uber, Postmates, Shopify, Peloton, Warby Parker and Squarespace.
Stripe currently has openings for staff engineers, web developers, product manager, technical recruiting manager and much more.
Some of the benefits their company offers employees include:
- Comprehensive mental, medical, and physical health plans
- Fertility benefits

While looking through their reviews on Glassdoor, here are my takeaways:

- Good salary and benefits package
- Transparent culture

1password is a password manager that allows users to store passwords, logins, software licenses, credit card info and other types of sensitive information.

Some of the well-known companies using 1password include IBM, Slack, PagerDuty, DropBox, GitLab and Roche.
