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 and Coinbase to Fortune 500 enterprises like American Express and PayPal. Founded in 2012, Plaid has raised $300M of capital from prominent Silicon Valley investors including Mary Meeker, Andreessen Horowitz, Index Ventures, and Spark Capital, as well as global financial institutions such as Goldman Sachs and Citi. But we’re just getting started.
The General Counsel will be responsible for building and empowering our Legal team, setting legal strategy, overseeing key deals and relationships, and serving as a partner to the rest of the company. Plaid has a complex legal function, and your purview will span across product, regulatory, commercial, international expansions, privacy, corporate, IP, employment, policy, and compliance. And beyond just the legal function, we’re looking for a business partner who will have input and influence across the company, and who will serve as a key member of Plaid’s leadership team.
