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.
Plaid’s products enable thousands of developers to build the next generation of financial services applications. When those developers need help, they turn to the Plaid Support team. Our goal is to help customers quickly and compassionately; keeping their applications running and their end-users happy.
Developer Support Engineers help application developers implement and find success using Plaid products. Most of our time is spent working on customer questions submitted through our ticketing system. We help users overcome technical challenges, investigate errors, and work with our Growth and Engineering teams to reach resolutions. People who do well in this role tend to be empathetic, technically-minded, and enjoy troubleshooting. When we're not working on tickets, you'll find us writing documentation, improving our processes, and collaborating cross-functionally to accomplish our Support goals.

What You'll Do:

    • Help developers use our products: To best help our customers you will learn about Plaid integrations, navigating the Plaid Dashboard, client libraries, implementing Link, webhook functionality, and how to handle error codes.
    • Investigate bugs: You'll investigate root cause, scope, and severity of various issues.
    • Make it better: We are committed to continuous improvement and leaving things better than we found them. It is not perfection we seek, but valuable, pragmatic improvements to our products, our company, and our craft.

What Excites Us:

  • Experience reading and writing code
  • Familiarity with modern web services and APIs
  • Affinity for SDKs
  • Excellent grammar and a friendly communication style
  • The ability to work with a high degree of autonomy
  • Caring deeply about the success of developers building on Plaid
  • Helping define the future of Fintech!
