Role Description

We believe that the way consumers and businesses interact with their finances will drastically improve in the next few years. Plaid's goal is to enable this shift by building the tools and infrastructure that allow developers to create the next generation of financial services applications. As a software engineer at Plaid, you'll be an integral part in building and scaling the APIs that help us all achieve this vision.

We’re architected around decoupled services. You could be working on our internal distributed systems framework that holds them all together, or building out the newest version of our API. Most of our back-end core systems are written in Go, but that's not a prerequisite. We pick the right tool for the job and have systems in Go, TypeScript, and Python.

What excites us: -Production experience, core fundamentals, and a strong command of at least one language -Someone who actively considers the fine balance between shipping speed and perfection -Background in computer science, engineering, or another related field and a strong track record of building interesting projects -Product mindset. You understand that building the right tools and systems can impact millions of users -Adaptability. Most of our engineers work across the entire stack, touching everything from the front end to our core infrastructure -Experience writing software for a startup or large tech company is a plus -We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

About Plaid

Plaid is focused on democratizing financial services through technology. We build beautiful consumer experiences, developer-friendly infrastructure, and intelligent tools that give everyone the ability to create amazing products that solve big problems.

Thousands of companies such as Robinhood, Acorns, Stripe, and Venmo, and a growing number of Fortune 50 companies, choose Plaid to deliver a best-in-class user experience so that they can create the next generation of applications. But we’re just getting started...

Company Culture

We value cross-team collaboration and diversity of thought. There's always an opportunity to learn from each other outside of day-to-day work, whether it's company-wide off sites, internal hackathons, or co-worker meetups.

In Engineering, we value humility, high-ownership, a focus on impact, transparency, and being shipping obsessed.

We have diverse backgrounds and skills, but we're all passionate about building a more efficient and inclusive financial infrastructure—together.
