Plaid’s network covers 11,000 financial institutions across the US, Canada, UK and Europe.

The mission of Plaid's Security Operations Team is to secure environments for our employees, development, and services. We achieve this by implementing controls that ensure security in the background, measuring effectiveness and adjusting controls. We also monitor and respond to issues that occur in those environments, address events, and reduce risk exposure.
As a Detection & Response Engineer on the Security Operations team, you will be responsible for building and optimizing the detection and alerting tools that drive our response processes. You will investigate existing signal sources from our platform and enterprise environments, identifying patterns of concern for detection and alerting. You will build automated response mechanisms that enable for rapid data enrichment or containment of newly arisen risks. You will work across security teams to address gaps in signal coverage, improving overall visibility to emerging threats. Major projects may include building a log/telemetry aggregation and detection platform, automated remediation tooling, implementing new logging mechanisms, discovering risky patterns in security event streams, and defining runbooks for manual response processes where needed.
We're guided by our principles, including impact, growing together, embracing openness and positivity, and inventing tomorrow; we're looking for leaders motivated by those same principles.
