Pitch a story to Increment

Increment is a print and digital magazine published by Stripe that covers the state of the tech industry. Each issue is dedicated to a specific theme (previous issues were dedicated to on-call and cloud computing) and illuminates industry best practices, contains interviews with industry experts, and explores the important aspects of the theme at hand.

We're currently considering pitches that address technical topics with creativity and precision. We’re looking for finely crafted work that goes above and beyond. Note that all accepted stories will go through a rigorous editorial review.

We’d love to hear from you—please read the following thoroughly before sending us your pitch.
