At Plaid, our mission is to empower innovators by delivering access to the financial system. Since 2012 we've helped tens of millions of consumers live a better financial life and over a thousand customers build a new financial future. Our customers range from startups like Stripe, Coinbase and Square to Fortune 500 enterprises like American Express and PayPal.

Founded in 2012, Plaid has raised $300M of capital from major venture capital firms such as Kleiner Perkins, Andreessen Horowitz, Index, Spark and NEA, as well as global financial institutions such as Goldman Sachs and Citi. But we’re just getting started.

Plaid has grown to almost 500 people worldwide. The team relies on the People Operations function to enable them to do their best work without worrying about the minutiae of their benefits and working situations. We’re a critical component of Plaid’s future success and we’re looking for a HR Generalist to grow and support our global team.
