We evaluate what to pursue, craft strategies to maximize impact, and help teams deliver market success.

We believe 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 infrastructure developers need 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 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.

Who We Are
The Internal Platform at Plaid enable’s our business to scale and accelerates product development by allowing our engineering teams to focus on building the future of financial services. It’s a deeply technical team responsible for the foundational building blocks that reduce the burden of infrastructure ownership at Plaid, including cloud services, developer tooling, data and machine learning platforms, domain abstractions, and common components across all product lines. 

The Challenge
We are looking for an experienced product leader to partner with our Head of Infrastructure to drive product vision and strategy for our Internal Platform. This leader will build and develop a high performing PM team that deeply understands our customers’ needs, prioritizes the most important opportunities for us to explore, and measures our success effectively.
