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 tools and products to enable developers to create this next generation of financial services applications. Today, hundreds of companies such as Venmo, Square, and Coinbase rely on Plaid to integrate with banks and the financial system.
Making data driven decisions is key to Plaid's culture. To support that, we need a data science team that can build and maintain core data sets, metrics, and dashboards. In the product development process. we rely on experimentation heavily, so that we can quantify the impact of new features and products and rapidly iterate. We also provide tools and guidance to teams across engineering, product, and business to help them explore our data quickly and safely to get the data insights they need, which ultimately helps Plaid serve our customers more effectively.
Our data science culture is IC-driven -- we favor bottom-up ideation and empowerment of our incredibly talented team. We are looking for data scientists who are motivated by creating impact for our consumers and customers, growing together as a team, shipping the MVP, and leaving things better than we found them.
