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.
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

    • Minimum 3 years experience in a sourcing or full-cycle recruiting role for Design candidates ranging from brand to product design
    • Experience recruiting for UXR and Design Ops (preferred, not required)
    • Experience working on a small team in a high-growth, rapidly changing environment
    • Deep knowledge of the best candidate sources and a penchant for connecting with Design talent
    • Excitement to work at a startup and to contribute to building help building and iterating on existing processes
