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.

We started out by building the technical infrastructure APIs that connect consumers, traditional financial institutions, and developers. Today, we add key insights to the data access we provide with our suite of analytics products and one in four Americans with a bank account now uses Plaid.

Job Description

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. Today, thousands of companies such as Acorns, Stripe, and Venmo rely on Plaid to connect with the financial system; supporting millions of requests per day and thousands of bank integrations. Our goal is to give people more control over their finances and unlock financial freedom for everyone.
 
Integrations is the most mission-critical component of our infrastructure as it connects millions of financial accounts and billions of transactions to Plaid. As a software engineer at Plaid's engineering office in Salt Lake City, you'll be responsible for building and maintaining the core integrations into our financial institution partners—and help build on the framework that keeps all these integrations together. You'll work mostly with a codebase written in Typescript and Node.js.
 
We're guided by our principles, including impact, growing together, embracing openness and positivity, and inventing tomorrow; we're looking for people motivated by those same principles.
