Plaid powers the tools millions of people rely on to live a healthier financial life.

The Communications team at Plaid is looking for a hands-on senior public relations professional to support our privacy communications initiatives. This is a key role that will shape the messaging, plans, and stories to grow awareness of Plaid’s role as an advocate for consumer data rights and standards-bearer for privacy controls in digital finance. The ideal candidate is passionate about the ability for technology to build a more equitable financial system, and the potential for Plaid to drive the next phase of digital financial services globally. The ideal candidate understands how to manage successful relationships with the press, advocacy groups and industry influencers, and has experience in crisis communications and reputation management. You have previously managed people or agency teams, yet are willing to do the hands on work to help Plaid navigate an increasingly expansive footprint in the financial services industry. This person reports directly to our Corporate Communications Lead.
