Stripe Stories: Fay Wu On Finding Mentors

Below is an article originally written by PowerToFly Partner Stripe, and published on December 7, 2018. Go to Stripe's page on PowerToFly to see their open positions and learn more.

I started at Stripe as a newly minted engineer two weeks after finishing university. When I was interviewing with tech companies, I kept asking myself what I wanted to work on (and was often asked this question). The "what" seemed like it was most important thing, but I quickly realized I had no idea what I wanted to work on. After spending a day with Stripes during my job interview, I realized that maybe the "who" — the people I would call my teammates — was more important than any one project. A year and a half at Stripe later, that still holds true.

In my first two weeks in my new role, I went through what we call Stripe 101 and /dev/start, spin-up programs designed to teach about Stripe's products and culture and get new Stripes started on a technical project. I also met my spin-up buddy, a fellow Stripe who checks in daily and helps set up a new hire for success. My buddy and I talked about everything from how to build a productive relationship with my manager to working with other teams. He turned out to be an incredibly thoughtful mentor and we continue to meet consistently to this day.

After getting up to speed on Stripe systems, current projects, and products (including Radar, the fraud detection product I'd be working on), I came back to the "what" of my career. What did I want to focus on? Frontend, backend, or all the layers in between? Did I want to solve problems for internal or external users? I was fortunate to have a engaged manager who helped guide me through these decisions. Another teammate encouraged me to turn to other engineers I interacted with on a daily basis, to observe what they do and how the various roles differ from each other. Stripe was at a size where there were a lot of amazing engineers working on fantastically different things, and pretty much everyone was willing to chat about why they loved what they were doing — and that part of Stripe engineering culture still holds true today. I started meeting with engineers on various teams to explore their broad range of perspectives. Some were motivated by getting deep into a particularly technical problem, while others were hyper-focused on user patterns and needs. And most, if not all, were personally invested in seeing my career progress, and encouraged me to explore all different parts of the tech stack.

A year and a half later, I've worked on fraud prevention, fraud resolution (in the form of disputes), and most recently was on the team that launched Stripe Terminal, our card present solution. I've owned an API, dealt with incidents, missed deadlines, and been a spin-up up buddy twice — with my mentors and managers positively supporting the ups and downs along the way.

Everywhere I look at Stripe I find interesting projects and teams. They inspire me to ask the tough questions, find better solutions, and challenge the typical way of doing things. Not only are they teaching me valuable technical skills, but I've been able to fine-tune what kind of mentor I aim to be.

CardFlight By The Numbers: 2018 In Review

Below is an article originally written by Marc Hummel at PowerToFly Partner CardFlight, and published on December 20, 2018. Go to CardFlight's page on PowerToFly to see their open positions and learn more.

Like every year at CardFlight so far, 2018 was a year filled with new products, deals, learnings, and growth.

We closed another year of mind-bending growth…

…and reached a new business milestone:

Those 45,000+ merchants process transactions using the latest payment acceptance technologies:

We also received some hard-earned recognition…

Learn more about the awards (and how we celebrated them) here.

…and brought on several new partnerships.

Read more about a few of those new partnerships: Paya, Boomtown, and Payscape.

We achieved so much in 2018 thanks to our rockstar team.

Which got quite a bit bigger this year.

To see everyone on the team, go here.

All that growth required a lot of communication…

…a good amount of LaCroix…

…and a LOT of travel.

Our support team provided our clients with world-class service…


…and our development team worked hard to add new features and support new devices.

CardFlight now has three payment acceptance solutions for merchants on the go, in store, and at the computer.

As hard as our teams worked, they were never hungry…

…or without some well-deserved recognition…

…or equally well-deserved fun.

For more photos from around the office this year, check out #teamCardFlight on Twitterand LinkedIn.

The end.

A big heartfelt thanks to our reseller partners, employees, and merchants for making 2018 a year to remember.
