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 the overall team strategy, prioritizing both general market verticals and specific partner opportunities to drive commercial value to and from our partners.
This particular role is for a senior individual contributor with strong potential to grow a team over time. This person will lead cross-functional initiatives to drive new GTM motions for the Partnerships team and Plaid overall -- i.e., reselling of third-party products and services and Plaid Account Executives, potentially including embedding third-party products within the Plaid API.
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 workstreams. Past experience in tech partnerships, business development, other strategic commercial roles, and/or top-tier consulting/finance roles make for a good team fit.
