Security Engineering is focused on data security. We are responsible for building out security systems and controls to reduce the risks on data. We believe security should be enabled by default across all of Plaid.
You will ensure that the flow of information across the Plaid ecosystem is safe and secure. Build security controls around sensitive data and reduce its exposure to internal and external users. You will continue to improve Plaid’s services around data deletion and encryption to exceed industry standards and norms. Partner with other engineering teams to implement security improvements and provide security architecture guidance.
We're guided by our principles including impact, growing together, embracing openness and positivity, inventing tomorrow; we’re looking for leaders who are motivated by those same principles. What excites you
    • Improving security through building software.
    • Working across legal, product, and engineering to improve security at the business level.
    • Setting a new standard for data privacy across the financial industry.
    • Thinking of security primitives like authentication, encryption, logging as products for engineers as customers.
