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.

Engineering

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.

    We believe that the way consumers and businesses interact with their finances will drastically improve in the next few years. Plaid's goal is to enable this shift by building the tools and infrastructure that allow developers to create the next generation of financial services applications. As a software engineer at Plaid, you'll be essential in building and scaling the APIs that help us all achieve this vision.

    We’re architected around decoupled services. You could be working on our internal distributed systems framework that holds them all together, or building out the newest version of our API. Most of our back-end core systems are written in Go, but that's not a prerequisite. We pick the right tool for the job and have systems in Go, Node.js, Python, and Scala.

    What we're looking for:

    • Production experience, core fundamentals, and a mastery of at least one language
    • Someone who actively considers the fine balance between shipping speed and perfection
    • A background in engineering, CS, physics, math, statistics, philosophy, or another related field and a strong track record of building interesting projects
    • Product mindset. You understand that building the right tools and systems can impact millions of users
    • Hacker mentality. Many of our projects are truly full-stack, and you might have to move from front-end to sysadmin at a moment's notice
    • Experience writing test-driven software for a startup or large tech company is a plus

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.

  • Product Manager - Payments
    Close

    Plaid's goal is to lower the barriers to entry into financial services—and one of the largest existing barriers around the security, speed, and accessibility of our current payments systems. Plaid already helps tens of millions of users authenticate onto the ACH system, and we've analyzed more than two trillion dollars of payment data. We recently launched a tokenized developer ACH system and are just getting started. We're looking for an experienced product manager to help us build out our next generation of solutions.

    What excites us

    • A strong knowledge of payments systems with a focus on ACH and the corollary systems and protocols
    • At least 2 years as a product manager at top-tier company or startup
    • A strong technical background is a plus

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.
