Tips to land an interview at Stripe (PM)

I've had little luck reaching landing an interview for a PM role at Stripe. Reaching out to their recruiters ( five of them ) on LinkedIn resulted in nothing more than being politely redirected to the Stripe application page.

I'm intent on joining Stripe because my aim is to join a company that helps other businesses earn a dollar. I have a side-hustle that leverages the Stripe SDK for payments, and was incorporated with Atlas. I believe they legitimately made it easier for me to start a business.

Does anybody at Stripe have advice on what skills/attributes/experience I can build up to get some traction? I painfully realize, and understand, that being a PM at MSFT probably counts against me. However, I do have software development experience, a CS degree from a top institution, and a side business that leverages the Stripe payment platform. Is there anything else I can do, or is direct work experience from a payment platform, like Square, a prerequisite?

    Stripe doesn’t place much emphasis on referrals and their recruiters aren’t going to refer you. If you want to apply for the job, do so on the online application. I’m not sure what other advice you’re looking for.
