Application Security Engineer






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 Coinbase, Stripe, and Venmo rely on Plaid to integrate with banks and the financial system.

In this role, you’ll ensure that new and ongoing product work launches with security in mind. You will conduct security reviews of existing products, help craft a long term security architecture strategy with the engineering organization, and help make sure teams are using the right security solutions when required. You will continually improve Plaid’s baseline security by adding new tooling to our deploy process, hooking into existing product reviews, and helping design new security APIs for engineers.

What Excites Us

        A strong background in security architecture, threat modeling, and security review.
        Experience conducting security audits, pentests, etc.
        Able to work cross-functionally with engineering teams to understand potential security issues, and work closely to fix them.
        You can help teams understand how to prioritize security work in line with Plaid's larger business needs.

What Excites You

        Helping define the security culture for a rapidly growing engineering organization.
        Creating ways to continually abstract away core security concerns from engineers to speed up development velocity.
        Thinking of security as an enabling function instead of a blocking function.
        Teaching other engineers how to proactively think about the security of their products during the scoping and building phases.
