  • New: Today, we’re launching a tool that helps Stripe Atlas companies issue stock to founders, as well as a few more features to help after incorporation. Since launching Stripe Atlas, we’ve worked with thousands of founders who are building everything from a behavioral therapist chatbot to a search engine for enterprises. We’ve repeatedly heard from them that the challenges of starting a business hardly end with incorporation—there are often many complexities to navigate around the company’s legal and financial infrastructure as well: Issuing stock to founders Stripe Atlas companies can now issue stock to their founding team for free. Companies can generate, review, sign, and store a full set of stock issuance documents using Atlas. These documents feature terms that are standard among many tech startups and top investors, such as four year vesting with a one year cliff. They’re generated from templates prepared by Orrick, a leading law firm for technology companies. Issuing st

  • New: When a company writes about their observability stack, they often focus on sweet visualizations, advanced anomaly detection or innovative data stores. Those are well and good, but today we’d like to talk about the tip of the spear when it comes to observing your systems: metrics pipelines! Metrics pipelines are how we get metrics from where they happen—our hosts and services—to storage quickly and efficiently so they can be queried, all without interrupting the host service.

  • New: Today, we’re launching two additional features to improve the security of your Stripe account: an option to use hardware tokens for two-step authentication and the ability to create API keys with restricted access and granular permissions. ## Two-step authentication with hardware tokens {#u2f} We first introduced two-step authentication for Stripe accounts [back in 2012](/blog/two-step-verification). Now, in addition to SMS or using Google Authenticator, you can also register a physical security key to approve logins to your Stripe account. We support any device using the Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) standard hosted by the FIDO Alliance. You can read more about the [devices and browsers we support](https://support.stripe.com/questions/how-do-i-enable-two-step-verification); of note, a single hardware key can be registered for two-step authentication with multiple services like AWS, Google, GitHub, and more.

  • New: Code is central to Stripe: we build APIs, software tools, and infrastructure that are in turn used by other software engineering-driven businesses. And of course code is also central—by definition—at other software companies. It’s easy for familiarity with code to become a barrier between different groups within a technology company: lots of companies have an upper tier of code-wrangling wizards that are supported by the rest of the company, sometimes known as the non-engineers. From the beginning, we’ve tried hard to avoid this at Stripe. In seating, we mix engineering teams with non-engineering teams. When we hire, we seek out engineers who are excited about problems beyond code itself. When we communicate internally, we make sure our engineering work is open and comprehensible to all Stripes, and that each improvement to our platform and even internal infrastructure is shared widely.

  • New: Starting a business is hard. Some of the difficulty is intrinsic—making products and services then convincing customers to pay for them will always be a challenge. Some of the difficulty is unnecessary—access to the infrastructure and tools for starting up an internet business is not evenly distributed. We built Stripe Atlas to remove the barriers that prevent some entrepreneurs from participating in the global economy on an equal playing field. Many of us here at Stripe have started businesses ourselves and we remember puzzling over taxes and being confused by Terms of Service. This pain is unnecessary and we’re setting out to fix it by sharing what we’ve learned to help build and start businesses. Today, we’re publishing our first guide—on topics around incorporation and taxes—and we’ll be writing more in the future. ’Real’ businesses In the technology industry, we often talk about “imposter syndrome”—the feeling that everyone around you knows what they’re doing and that

  • New: In September, Stripe is supporting the development of [Hypothesis][hypothesis], an open-source testing library for Python created by [David MacIver][@drmaciver]. Hypothesis is the only project we’ve found that provides effective tooling for testing code for machine learning, a domain in which testing and correctness are notoriously difficult. Instead of unit tests, Hypothesis lets you define certain properties of your functions that should hold true for every input. A property is a statement like “My sorting function should return a sorted list given any input list.” Every time the tests run, Hypothesis attempts to prove your properties wrong by feeding in thousands of automatically generated example inputs. If any of your properties break, Hypothesis returns the smallest possible example of failing input. Here's an example of a Hypothesis test: [hypothesis]: http://hypothesis.works/ [@drmaciver]: http://www.drmaciver.com/ from hypothesis import given import hypothesis.str

  • New: Managing payments for marketplaces and platforms is harder than for most other businesses: not only do these businesses have to accept money from customers, but they also need to handle funds and pay out to third parties. Adding further complication, paying out money means doing things like checking recipient IDs, reporting taxable income, and a whole host of new tasks. We first launched Stripe Connect in 2012 to make all of this easier. We're continuing to improve on and add to Connect's functionality to simplify the process of running a marketplace or platform, to allow for faster expansion to new markets, and to enable a growing set of business models. Support for more business models on Connect The canonical Connect use case involves routing a single charge from one customer to one recipient—for example, backing a campaign on Kickstarter.

If you haven't seen this part of the Dashboard before, we support you giving as many team members as you like access to your Stripe account. When we first added teams and roles to Stripe, we only provided three access levels: administrator, read and write, and read-only. We’ve heard feedback that different job functions need a more distinct set of permissions when accessing Stripe accounts. Now, users assigned the new Developer role can access API keys and most settings, but cannot edit any team or bank account settings.

Stripe’s design team works hard to create unique landing pages that ">tell a story for our major products. For this release, we designed Connect’s landing page to reflect its intricate, cutting-edge capabilities while keeping things light and simple on the surface. In this blog post, we’ll describe how we used several next-generation web technologies to bring Connect to life, and walk through some of the finer technical details (and excitement!) on our front-end journey.

  • New: As software becomes more important in the world, the practice and art of software is becoming more important too. A lot has been written about how individual engineers can be more effective. We've noticed that much less has been written about how software engineering teams can be more effective. Groups of humans building software together vary enormously in their productivity. Some manage to be vastly more than the sum of their parts while others struggle to reach even half of that. The mechanics of how we work together determine not only the output of the team but also the satisfaction, enjoyment, and growth of the individuals. Despite their importance, we've noticed our practices for working together tend to be tribally transmitted in ad hoc ways: based on experiences with different approaches that people have had at different companies or on the occasional blog post that someone has read.

While software developers are used to iterating quickly and often, API developers lose that flexibility as soon as even one user starts consuming their interface. Many of us are familiar with how the Unix operating system evolved. In 1994, [_The Unix-Haters Handbook_](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Unix-Haters_Handbook) was published containing a long list of missives about the software---everything from overly-cryptic command names that were optimized for Teletype machines, to irreversible file deletion, to unintuitive programs with far too many options. Over twenty years later, an overwhelming majority of these complaints are still valid even across the dozens of modern derivatives.
