A brief introduction to the existing Japanese community.

7:05pm Stripe at Doorkeeper - Paul McMahon

Doorkeeper has been using Stripe since the Japanese private beta. We started off by using the Connect API to allow our organizers to collect prepayments. When we started charging organizers to use the platform, we did it using the Stripe Billing API.

This presentation will discuss why Doorkeeper chose to use Stripe, explain the impact of Stripe on our business, and cover some of the challenges we’re currently facing with it.


Paul McMahon is representative director of Doorkeeper Inc. He also organizes many events, including Tokyo Rubyist Meetup, CTO Talk Tokyo, and this one!

7:25pm Stripe at MakeLeaps - Paul Oswald

MakeLeaps is online invoicing software for freelancers and businesses in Japan. MakeLeaps uses Stripe for both their own subscriptions, which are calculated based on team members, clients, and other options as well as Stripe Connect for their customers. They allow customers to bring their own stripe account to collect payments via credit cards for their invoices, or help them provision a new one in-app.


Paul Oswald is the co-founder and CTO of MakeLeaps. Paul began working in diverse fields such as computational chemistry, mobile application development, and digital content management. He has previously worked at companies of all sizes from light and nimble internet startups in the early 2000's up to process-focused global enterprises.

Paul co-founded MakeLeaps in 2010 and has guided the growth of the MakeLeaps software platform and development team. He has been programming professionally for over 20 years and brings extensive software development and team management experience from his years as the lead architect building the digital supply chain at Sony Music.
