Engineering Manager - Consumer Experience
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, and the direct to consumer experiences that earn user trust in our ecosystem. Today, hundreds of companies such as Robinhood, Coinbase, and Venmo rely on Plaid to integrate with banks and the financial system.
The Consumer Group is fully distributed and highly collaborative. We work across time zones from PST to CET and believe that the diversity of our team, including where we live, is our super power. We favor partnership and believe that working together amplifies the impact of our incredibly talented team. We’re looking for managers to develop creative ways to scale our remote culture as we grow.
As an Engineering Manager, you'll lead a team of 5-10 frontend and full stack engineers. You'll work closely with product managers, designers, and other engineering teams to bring our product and infrastructure services to life. Moreover, you’ll develop and own the technical strategy that enables your team’s mission.
We're guided by our principals—impact, grow together, embrace openness and positivity, think rigorously and act with urgency, make it better, consumer outcomes via customer love, and invent tomorrow—and are looking for team members who are motivated by those same principles.
