Design Recruiter

San Francisco | 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.

Recruiting in most startups is a polarizing role. Attracting and retaining fantastic people is the most important thing we do, yet too often candidates are treated like 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 life. Now we're looking to build a recruiting team that has this same mentality.

As the second member of our Design Recruiting team, you'll work closely with our thoughtful, collaborative, and motivated Design and Research Managers to help scale the team. We value inclusive sourcing techniques, plan thoughtful closing strategies, and enjoy analyzing recruiting data. No matter the skill, everyone on the team cares about becoming great at recruiting.

  • Ownership over the full life cycle of recruiting (sourcing through close)
  • Create amazing candidate experiences and thoughtful recruiting strategies 
  • Partner extremely close with Hiring Managers to solve hiring problems on the fly
  • Review recruiting data to identify trends and recommend solutions to improve hiring practices

What excites us

  • Experience recruiting for UXR and Design Ops (preferred, not required)
  • Experience working on a small team in a high-growth, rapidly changing environment
