We’re working to democratize financial services for people and businesses

Join us View Openings

We started Plaid to solve a simple problem: How can we empower developers and consumers to control their financial data? That mission still drives us. We’re constantly striving to lower the barrier to entry into financial services.

Three years in, we’ve helped tens of thousands of applications—like charity: water, Stripe, Coinbase, Venmo, and Capital One—build fast, secure, and user-friendly experiences. In the last year alone, we connected more than 20 million accounts and analyzed more than $1 trillion of spend—and we’re just getting started.

While we think we’ve made good progress, we still have a long way to go. Whether we’re building systems to analyze billions of transactions or working with legislators on Capitol Hill, our work is varied and challenging—and could use your help.


Financial technology is a space ripe for innovation through design, and although our team is small, we have big plans for the future. From getting out in the field and talking to customers to polishing pixels just before launch, we're a craft-obsessed yet pragmatic team dedicated to making a meaningful difference in the way people interact with their wallets.


    Plaid was started by a team of engineers to empower developers to democratize financial services. We’re still true to those roots as a technical-focused company.

    Across our team, we value a product-oriented mindset and a passion for building clean and scalable code. We focus on creating the best possible environment to build amazing products. We limit meetings, rely on asynchronous communication, and even take a day off every month as a team just to focus on working on open-source projects and growing our engineering chops.

    Our stack is as varied as the problems we’re working to solve, so we're always on the lookout for talented engineers to join our team.


      Plaid is helping to build a more efficient, innovative, and secure financial system. We need to be nimble as we sit at the intersection of some of the most established businesses in the world and others who are just starting up.

      The Operations Team is responsible for optimizing and scaling our systems, processes, and talent to make the above vision a reality. This makes for a unique set of challenges that calls for a diverse skill set.


        Our products enable major institutions and individual developers to build features on top of banks—we power many of the most exciting developments financial services has seen in years.

        To do this, we marry design and engineering to ensure that the user experience is seamless from front end to back end.

        The problems we’re tackling call for people who are dedicated and craft-obsessed—people who can polish products, but who are also pragmatic about shipping.


          Our clients are our highest priority, and our focus is on helping customers—from large to small—build the best applications and benefit from modern technologies.

          Our relationships with financial institutions are a key part of our product, as is collaborating with a variety of stakeholders to creatively solve the biggest problems facing financial services today.

            Product Support

            Our #1 goal is making sure customers have the best experience possible. On any given day we respond to customer inquiries from a college student building their first application to the CTO of a Fortune 500 company that is looking to transform the delivery of financial services.

            This is your chance to work on the team that helps customers build the next generation of financial services applications and ensure they have an incredible experience with Plaid.

              Life with Plaid

              At Plaid, we work hard to find people who aren’t only exceptionally talented, but are also great to spend time with. Every member of the team passes what we call the Sunday test: If this person were in the office on a Sunday, would we be more likely to come to the office to work with them?

              In short, we love working together, be it on a project that modernizes payments or on belay. We value time spent together outside the office as opportunities to learn and grow together. We do regular game nights, climbing events, and off-sites to Sonoma, Mexico, and Montana.

              Apply by API
