Partner Account Manager

Remote | Full-time

We build long-term relationships to accelerate the growth and reach of Plaid’s products across the financial ecosystem.

At Plaid, our mission is to unlock financial freedom for everyone.  There has never been a better time than now to start building the future of fintech with us. 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 Partner Account Manager role is instrumental in driving the success of Plaid’s strategic go-to-market Partners. Partner Account Managers are responsible for the overall growth of a portfolio of Plaid’s strategic platform partners, many of which are top names in the Fintech industry.

This person will own the relationship with senior leaders at Plaid’s top existing partners and high-potential revenue-generating Partners, will collaborate with Partner’s go-to-market teams on joint marketing and sales activities to drive sustainable joint revenue growth, and will lead cross-functional account operations and project management activities, internally and externally. Activities will include joint business planning, driving joint marketing activities, monitoring and managing joint sales activity, and project managing the onboarding & enablement of new partners. 

This person will work closely with the Partner Management Lead, peers in the Partnerships team, and internal cross-functional team members to build and develop a highly scalable playbook and program that prioritizes joint business growth. 

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.

What excites you

  • You enjoy managing and growing existing strategic partnerships 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 engagement
  • 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

  • 7+ years work experience, including 3+ years in tech partnerships, business development, other strategic commercial roles, and/or top-tier consulting/finance roles
  • A track record driving complex cross-functional workstreams
  • High degree of empathy for external partners
  • All-around “business athlete” skill set
  • An ownership mentality -- you’ll “run through walls” to successfully execute our partnership strategy
