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!
