United States | 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, 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 12,000 financial institutions across the US, Canada, UK and Europe.

Integrations are the most mission-critical component of our infrastructure as it connects millions of financial accounts and billions of transactions to Plaid. As a backend software engineer on Plaid's Financial Access team, you will help preserve our access to data and improve our integration quality with thousands of financial institutions. You will create the necessary tools to build and maintain integrations, monitor and manage the health of these partnerships, and increase Plaid product coverage for financial institutions. You'll work mostly with a codebase written in Typescript and Go.

We're guided by our principles, including impact, growing together, embracing openness and positivity, inventing tomorrow; we’re looking for engineers who are motivated by those same principles.

What excites you

  • Working across multiple teams to tackle ambiguous and ambitious problems.
  • Building a strong sense of community within your team, collaborating and pairing with other engineers on the team to promote knowledge sharing, improve code quality, achieve operational gains etc.
  • Owning projects from the 0 to 1 stage and the 1 to 10 stage of problems.
  • Looking ahead at requirements and designing solutions by working across teams and sometimes with other functions.
  • If you are looking for the fast track to impact, this is it! We will need you to dive right in.

What excites us

  • 2+ years of production experience, core fundamentals, and a strong command of at least one language.
  • Adaptability. Most of our engineers work across the entire stack, touching everything from the front-end to our core infrastructure.
  • Problem solving. Our work can often require implementing unconventional solutions; you aren’t afraid to explore new domains when previous methods fail, sort through minute details, or find non-engineering ways around the problem.
  • Impact driven. You understand how your work impacts millions of users.
