About our team
The design team at Plaid is made up of product designers, design systems designers, brand designers, researchers, and content strategists who work with our cross-functional partners to create Plaid’s products.

We believe that financial freedom includes all types of financial information, especially when it comes to how credit is determined. Our Credit product allows consumers seeking loans to verify their assets or income by connecting lenders with their bank accounts or payroll providers. We want to help change how credit is determined so that those without access to traditional credit scores can access the funds they need.
