TechOps Engineer

San Francisco | 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.

Plaid’s Tech Ops team is responsible for keeping all non-production infrastructure and services available and running smoothly.  This includes services like G-Suite, Okta, Slack, infrastructure in AWS that supports development (on-premise Atlassian Suite, Github Enterprise, etc.), and the physical infrastructure we have collocated in our offices.  The ultimate goal of the Tech Ops team is to take care of its customers -- Plaid employees!

Plaid is hiring a Tech Ops Engineer that will be hands-on working with team members to do everything from troubleshooting a potential G-Suite issue to debugging provisioning issues with Apple laptops, all while helping to keep our office networks and other corporate infrastructure running smoothly.  The ideal candidate is someone who enjoys working on all the things that companies rely on to get work done when in the office or working remotely.
