Software Engineer - Data Privacy






San Francisco, CA, US


At Plaid, we believe that the way consumers and businesses interact with their finances will drastically improve in the next few years. Our goal is to build the tools and infrastructure for developers to create this next generation of financial services applications. Today, hundreds of companies such as Venmo, Acorns, and Coinbase rely on Plaid to integrate with banks and the financial system.

In this role, you'll ensure that the flow of information across the Plaid ecosystem is safe and secure. This includes monitoring and detecting instances of PII across Plaid’s infrastructure, understanding and proactively reducing the exposure of PII to both internal and external customers, building tooling and frameworks for engineers to tag and categorize existing data through our systems, and finally maintaining Plaid’s data deletion platform to ensure we are only storing the right data at the right time.

What excites us

        Experience building out systems for logging and managing data at scale.
        Experience ensuring internal systems handle data with GDPR compliance in mind. (Maybe you’ve even started to think about CCPA.)
        You’ve led organizational or company wide initiatives to enhance privacy practices.
        You’ve built APIs and tooling that help abstract privacy or security concerns away from engineers.

What excites you

        Creating a vision for data privacy that becomes the standard across the financial industry.
        Ensuring data privacy continues to be a key consideration for building new products at Plaid.
        Working across teams with product, legal, engineering, and others to proactively build APIs and tools to ensure privacy is enabled by default across Plaid’s infrastructure.

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.
