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.

The International Team is working to make Plaid into a market leader in European bank connectivity. We partner with our colleagues in Amsterdam and London to adapt our existing products to the European market, and to build an entirely new European payments product.

You will lead the San Francisco-based International team, working with your cross-functional counterparts to define a long-term roadmap for our European product offerings and driving the execution of that roadmap. You will support a strong team of experienced full-stack engineers, and you will help hire and grow that team to tackle additional problems and—over time—expand to new regions.
