We believe that the way consumers and businesses interact with their finances will drastically improve in the next few years. Plaid's goal is to enable this shift by building the tools and infrastructure that let developers create the next generation of financial services applications. Today, thousands of companies such as Acorns, Stripe, and Venmo rely on Plaid to integrate with banks and the financial system.
As a software engineer at Plaid's new engineering office in Salt Lake City, you'll be responsible for building and maintaining the core integrations into our financial institution partners—and help build on the framework that keeps all these integrations together. It is the most mission-critical component of our infrastructure, and is responsible for connecting millions of bank accounts and billions of transactions to Plaid. You'll work mostly with a codebase written in Typescript and Node.js.

A background in engineering, CS, physics, math, statistics, or another related field and a strong track record of building interesting projects
Impact driven. You understand how your work impacts millions of users
Problem solving. Our work can often require implementing unconventional solutions; you aren’t afraid to explore new domains when previous methods fail, sort through minute details, or find non-engineering ways around the problem
Experience writing software for a startup or large tech company is a plus
