Remote | Full-time

We evaluate and facilitate product partnerships, investments, and acquisitions to expand Plaid’s products and business.

At Plaid, our mission is to unlock financial freedom for everyone.  There has never been a better time than now to start building the future of fintech with us. Plaid powers the tools millions of people rely on to live a healthier financial life. We work with thousands of companies like Venmo and SoFi, several of the Fortune 500, and many of the largest banks to make it easy for people to connect their financial accounts to the apps and services they want to use. Plaid’s network covers 11,000 financial institutions across the US, Canada, UK and Europe. Founded in 2013, the company is headquartered in San Francisco with offices in New York, Salt Lake City, Washington D.C., London and Amsterdam.

This role will be situated within the Business and Corporate Development functional team, which works very closely with senior leaders across Plaid to help accelerate the company’s mission through M&A, investments, product partnerships, and strategic initiatives. 

The role will focus specifically on product partnerships with the Transfers Team. Transfers is a newly formed goal-based team which is one of Plaid’s 2022 new product priorities. The goal of this team is to leverage Plaid’s position as the premier player in consumer permissioned data to introduce new, scale payment and money movement capabilities to the financial ecosystem.

This is a unique opportunity to be a core member of a high-impact team situated at the nexus of product, engineering, business development, and the broader strategic efforts at Plaid.
