We support the next generation of financial services by investigating, escalating, and fixing the issues affecting our customers and our consumers.

 We believe that the way people interact with their finances will drastically improve in the next few years.

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 products enable thousands of customers to build the next generation of financial services applications. When developers need help, they turn to the Plaid Support team. Our goal is to help customers quickly and compassionately; get setup on Plaid, keep their applications running and keep their end-users happy.

Developer Support Engineers help application developers implement and find success using Plaid products. Most of our time is spent working on customer questions submitted through our ticketing system. We help customers overcome technical challenges, investigate errors, and work with our GTM and Engineering/Product teams to reach resolutions. People who do well in this role tend to be empathetic, technically-minded, and enjoy troubleshooting. When we're not working on tickets, you'll find us writing documentation, improving our processes, and collaborating cross-functionally to improve the customer experience and accomplish our Support goals.

What You'll Do

  • Investigate and resolve support tickets: You’ll investigate root cause, scope, and severity and resolve issues for customers.
  • Help customers use our products: You’ll help customers implement Plaid products, use software development kits (SDKs), improve integrations, navigate the Plaid Dashboard, use client libraries, implement Link, understand webhook functionality, and how to handle error codes.
  • Make it better: We are committed to continuous improvement and leaving things better than we found them. It is not perfection we seek, but valuable, pragmatic improvements to our products, our company, and our craft.

What Excites Us

  • Experience reading and writing code
  • Familiarity with modern web services and APIs
  • Affinity for SDKs
  • Open to communicating with customers on a call to resolve issues as needed
  • The ability to work with a high degree of autonomy
