We believe that 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 experiences that thousands of developers use 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 Development Foundations group comprises the set of teams collectively responsible for Plaid’s fundamental infrastructure, used by all engineering teams at the company. We maintain the systems and tools that power the development lifecycle end-to-end, from local iteration on an engineer’s laptop to deployment and monitoring in production. We advise other engineering teams on how to use these tools effectively and drive best practices for the entire organization. We’re constantly thinking about how software development at Plaid can be easier, faster, and more reliable and turning those ideas into reality for our teammates.
As the lead of leads for this group, you will drive step changes to Plaid’s reliability and engineering velocity, working with partners across Engineering and in related functions like Sales and Growth to identify the biggest opportunities and turn them into impact. You’ll accomplish all this by setting a clear, compelling vision and building a strong team that can realize it from the bottom-up.
