Software Engineer - Product

London | Full-time

We build simple yet innovative consumer products and developer APIs that shape how everybody interacts with money and the financial system.

We believe the way people interact with their finances will drastically improve in the next few years. We’re dedicated to empowering this transformation by building the tools and infrastructure developers need to create their own products. 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.

The Plaid London engineering team, established in 2022, is rapidly expanding to support Plaid’s growth in Europe. Over the coming year, the engineering team will grow, and will take on increasing ownership over a subset of Plaid’s European products.

As a member of the Europe team, you will work with cross-functional colleagues in Amsterdam and San Francisco to define and execute on our European product roadmap. You will form the core of Plaid’s London engineering presence and will help to define the London office’s engineering culture.
