Experienced Software Engineer - Product Success

Remote | 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 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.

Product Success provides a platform for internal product teams, building shared abstractions and primitives. The first piece of our platform is Plaid’s API service, both the framework layer to help other teams develop more quickly and the reliability layer to ensure Plaid continues to scale reliably. The second part of our platform is several important -- and complex -- data models like those for financial institutions and customers.

Plaid’s ability to support new products and users rests directly on the quality of the internal platform that we build. The better common building blocks we create, the faster we enable other engineering teams to build and scale each product for our customers and our users.
If you’re looking to take ownership of high-impact backend services and grow both your technical and leadership skills, this is the role for you.

This team is based in US Eastern time and the United Kingdom.
