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 is looking for a Product Manager to help lead the evolution of our data platform as we integrate with, and migrate our customers to, new connectivity APIs in partnership with financial institutions (FIs). In this role, you will serve as a leader helping to evaluate and deliver solutions which will drive a new API revolution in open finance. This position is vital to ensuring cross-functional delivery on key milestones related to Plaid’s API goals in 2021 and beyond.


    • Partnering with the Financial Access and Engineering Teams to evaluate, scope and capacity plan for connectivity APIs across multiple FIs. You will be key in setting priorities, timelines and resourcing in order to hit our goals.
    • Setting and delivering on a roadmap for scalability. This role is not just about each individual API, it’s also about ensuring the Plaid platform is optimized to support all APIs and migrations at scale, as efficiently as possible.
    • Designing technical solutions to improve connectivity APIs.  You will be on the front lines of identifying how we can improve these APIs, such as via Plaid Exchange.
    • Ensuring the timely delivery and scaling of connectivity APIs, in order to hit our milestones. You will be a critical cross-functional, operational lead in ensuring that the org moves as one, with shared momentum and minimal surprises.
    • Balancing FI needs with those of our customers. These migrations require ongoing stakeholder management and a 360-degree view of our business. You will be a key leader in ensuring equilibrium and alignment between FIs, Plaid, and our customers.

What excites us:

    • 6+ years of Product Management or Technical Product Management experience
    • Experience in complex migrations or platform work with multiple important stakeholders
    • Proven track record of timely technical delivery and business impact
    • Knowledge of, or appreciation for, technical solutions and architecture
    • Rigorous, disciplined operational approach - technical project management a plus
    • Cross-functional leadership and a collaborative demeanor - one team, one dream
    • Presence, poise, and disciplined follow-through - both internally and with external Financial Institutions

What excites you:

    • The opportunity to fundamentally reshape the foundation of FinTech
    • Digging into complexity and making sense of it 
    • Making a plan and nailing the delivery
    • Identifying recurring patterns or problems to design scalable, universal solutions
    • Leading cross-functional teams to deliver tangible results
    • Working closely with Engineering on complex, mission-critical work 
    • Collaboration with senior company leadership
    • Working in a fast-paced environment that values self-starters, solid judgment and fast decision-making
