About Plaid

Job Description

The product engineering team strives to make interacting with financial data not only better, but delightful. We believe that the key to solving finance's biggest problems lies in meeting modern user expectations. As the gateway for thousands of applications like Robinhood, Stripe, or Venmo, Plaid's platform calls for innovative problem solvers interested in tackling the complex challenges that exist in the financial ecosystem and scaling developer and user-facing systems to millions of users.

To develop top-tier, heavy-UI applications like Plaid Link, we are looking for people who excel across the disciplines of product engineering. This means a deep understanding of the JavaScript language, full-stack systems, scalability and performance, the nature of the HTTP protocol, and the varied edge cases in browsers, stylesheets, and mobile devices. We are also very open to fully remote, as a large portion of the team is part of a fully remote team.

What excites you

* Working with engineers with an eye for design, and with designers who code
* Products with real impact: Your work will touch tens of millions of end users, the best applications in fintech, and major U.S. financial institutions
* Interactive single-page applications, built on modern front-end frameworks like React
* Data visualization and a fantastic data set to work on
* High-performance JavaScript SDKs that can be dropped into third-party applications
* Digging through finance's complex challenges-and reimagining the experience completely

What excites us

* Background in computer science, engineering, or another related field
* Persistent problem solvers with a strong track record of building interesting projects
* Deep understanding of (and passion for) JavaScript, scalability and performance, HTML, CSS, browsers, stylesheets, and mobile devices
* Passion for web projects, backed up by an online presence (e.g., GitHub, Codepen, personal sites)
* UI instincts, but not necessarily the ability to create comps from scratch
* 3+ years of experience building web applications
* A background in startups 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.
