One of our main goals at Plaid is to lower the barriers to entry for financial services—and with that comes the responsibility to abstract the most sensitive parts of the financial system for our clients.

We were the first to release account number tokenization through our partnership with Stripe, first to create end-to-end tokenization of consumer financial data, and first to write the spec that several top-five financial institutions are now implementing to permission consumer and business financial data. At Plaid, proper security is an asset and a product, not just something to be scared of.

What excites you:

- Regularly assessing the threat model for both our existing production code and systems that are in development
- Having a thorough understanding of our products and implementations to balance the need to increase product development and manage security risk
- Being an integral part of the engineering team by shipping production-level code while also serving as a security resource to the rest of the team
- Ensuring our policies and procedures are best-in-class and forward-thinking
- Handling incident response when a security event occurs
- Proactively researching new attack vectors as applications and infrastructure changes
- Developing general techniques and frameworks that will enable other engineering teams to find flaws before they are introduced into production
- Being responsible for external messaging of security processes and systems and keeping up-to-date with industry developments
