Plaid’s GTM Partnerships role represents the core “go to market” function of our channel Partnerships team. This person will drive a large portion of overall team strategy, prioritizing both general market verticals and specific partner opportunities to drive commercial value to and from our partners. 

This person will own cross-functional initiatives to drive new GTM motions for the Europe Partnerships team and Plaid overall (e.g., bundling and resale of third-party products and services). This person will also initially be responsible for driving growth in key verticals such as Payment Processing and BaaS.
Partnerships GTM “owns” the full-lifecycle partner relationship, from opportunity qualification, deal structuring (which is generally consultative and can be complex), negotiating economics, and the legal contracting process. Once a partnership is “closed,” the team maintains a strong relationship with the partner and works closely with our partner enablement group to drive ongoing value from the relationship.

Successful candidates in this role have a blend of commercial skills, general business aptitude, and a track record driving complex cross-functional work streams. Past experience in payment partnerships, business development, other strategic commercial roles, and/or top-tier consulting/finance roles make for a good team fit.

What excites you

  • You enjoy negotiating complex deals with diverse objectives that include, but extend beyond, headline revenue
  • You get energy from working with external partners (including solving pain points!), and gravitate toward long-term rather than transactional business relationships
  • You thrive taking on and executing against new challenges that require cross-functional stakeholder stakeholder engagement
  • You’re excited working with partners beyond the deal-maling to drive the mutual benefits from the partnership
  • You’re excited to join a newer team (2.5 years in existence!) that is one of the fastest-growing at Plaid, and in many ways a “startup within a startup”
  • You’re energized by Plaid’s mission of unlocking financial freedom for everyone

What excites us

  • 5+ years work experience in payments partnerships, business development, or other strategic commercial roles
  • A track record driving complex cross-functional work streams
  • High degree of empathy for external partners
  • All-around “business runner” skill set
  • An ownership mentality -- you’ll “run through walls” to successfully execute our partnership strategy
