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, thousands of companies such as Acorns, Stripe, and Venmo rely on Plaid to integrate with banks and the financial system. Plaid’s infrastructure handles millions of requests per day and thousands of bank integrations, and we pride ourselves on maintaining a robust API to support the developers who depend on us -- and the millions of consumers who use their apps.
As an Engineering Manager in our Salt Lake City office, you'll lead a team of 5-10 engineers. You'll work closely with product managers, and other engineering teams to build and maintain 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.
Our engineering culture is IC-driven -- we favor bottom-up ideation and empowerment of our incredibly talented team. We're looking for managers who will enable our engineers to find innovative solutions to challenges. Finally, you'll work closely with our Head of Engineering and other engineering managers to build an organizational structure and processes that scale as we continue to grow.
We're guided by our values—transparency, intellectual honesty, courage to be bold, pragmatism, and humility—and are looking for team members who are motivated by those same principles.
