Software Engineer – Backend at Plaid Technologies
San Francisco, CA, US
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 allow developers to create the next generation of financial services applications. As a software engineer at Plaid, you'll be essential in building and scaling the APIs that help us all achieve this vision.
We’re architected around decoupled services. You could be working on our internal distributed systems framework that holds them all together, or building out the newest version of our API. Most of our back-end core systems are written in Go, but that's not a prerequisite. We pick the right tool for the job and have systems in Go, Node.js, Python, and Scala.
What we're looking for
•Production experience, core fundamentals, and a mastery of at least one language
•Someone who actively considers the fine balance between shipping speed and perfection
•A background in engineering, CS, physics, math, statistics, philosophy, or another related field and a strong track record of building interesting projects
•Product mindset. You understand that building the right tools and systems can impact millions of users
•Hacker mentality. Many of our projects are truly full-stack, and you might have to move from front-end to sysadmin at a moment's notice
•Experience writing test-driven software for a startup or large tech company is a plus
