Solutions Engineer Manager
At Plaid, our mission is to empower innovators by delivering access to the financial system. Since 2012 we've helped tens of millions of consumers live a better financial life and over a thousand customers build a new financial future. Our customers range from startups like Stripe, Coinbase and Square to Fortune 500 enterprises like American Express and PayPal. Founded in 2012, Plaid has raised $300M of capital from major venture capital firms such as Kleiner Perkins, Andreessen Horowitz, Index, Spark and NEA, as well as global financial institutions such as Goldman Sachs and Citi. But we’re just getting started.
Every day, we work with our customers to help them build and scale amazing applications. Behind each successful launch is (ideally) a Solutions Engineer that provides the technical guidance and support to make it all possible.

You’ll get to work with the fastest growing startups as well as some of the largest Fortune 500 companies.
