Junior Software Engineer - NYC

| Greater NYC Area
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 let developers create the next generation of financial services applications. Today, thousands of companies such as Robinhood, Stripe, and Venmo rely on Plaid to integrate with banks and the financial system.
We are seeking a skilled developer to work on web crawling projects, along with bank API implementations. The team is responsible for building and maintaining the codebase that extracts data from thousands of different institutions--which is at the core of Plaid’s business offering. This role gives a junior developer with strong Python skills the opportunity to be part of a close-knit, fast-growing team and make an immediate impact with their work.

What excites us

  • Python proficiency
  • HTTP, website crawling, DOM parsing or other data mining/retrieval experience
  • Someone who actively considers the fine balance between shipping speed and perfection
  • Impact driven. You understand how your work impacts millions of users.
  • Problem solving. Our work can often require implementing unconventional solutions; you aren’t afraid to explore new domains when previous methods fail, sort through minute details, or find non-engineering ways around the problem.

Please apply and include some examples of your code (a github link works great!) and be prepared to receive a coding challenge if you continue through the application process.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

An Insider's view of Plaid

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We have chess boards littered around the office. I'll be sure to get up throughout my day and play a couple moves, but one of the best parts of my day is how engaging and diverse the conversations I have and the connections I get to exercise are. Plaid promotes an open and accepting work environment that makes even Mondays a good day.

How does the company support your career growth?

There is a widespread understanding that everyone wants to continue building out their skill sets to fuel career growth. Managers help facilitate this by enabling their direct reports to pursue their interests and try new things. They also make sure that you’re always a bit out of your comfort zone -- the best way to keep developing.

What are some social events your company does?

There are always fun events happening at Plaid! We have regular lunch scrambles that are great for getting to know people from other teams, which is especially important since we are growing so fast. Social hour every Thursday is guaranteed to be a great time!
