Technical Sourcer

London | Full-time

We build the company by hiring each and every future employee into Plaid.

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.

Attracting and retaining fantastic people is the most important thing we do, yet too often candidates are treated as elements in an array. At Plaid, we care deeply about the experience of every candidate, no matter the outcome. For this reason, our founders ran recruiting themselves for the first few years of Plaid's inception. Now we're looking to build a recruiting team that has this same mentality. 

As our first Technical Sourcer in Europe, you'll be joining a recently formed, collaborative, and motivated team that has complete ownership over European hiring across Engineering, Product and Design. Your teammates each bring something special to recruiting. You'll find people who champion inclusive sourcing techniques, plan thoughtful closing strategies, or enjoy analysing recruiting data. No matter the skill, everyone on the team cares about excelling at recruiting. 

As a Technical Sourcer at Plaid, you believe that candidate experience starts from the very first email. Sourcers are the gatekeepers of a "candidate-first" philosophy. You'll play a crucial role in building engineering, product and design teams by finding, evaluating, and creatively engaging candidates.
