Sales - Start Up (NYC)

| Greater NYC Area
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 Robinhood 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.
Our Sales team at Plaid combines deep product and industry knowledge and is focused on bringing Plaid to an ever-broadening set of businesses. Our thesis is that every company in financial services can benefit from better financial technology, and that many industries that don't currently consider themselves to be fintech actually are.
You'll be the individual helping us achieve this vision. Your focus will be on generating new deals and building strong, long-lasting relationships with companies. You'll be tasked with identifying and closing deals across verticals in financial services, utilities, billing, insurance, and more.

What you'll do

  • Identify potential customers and run the end-to-end sales process
  • Build and maintain relationships with enterprises, from executives to product teams and to developers
  • Work with our sales and marketing teams to define and execute our sales strategy

What excites us

  • Significant experience (3+ years of quota-carrying experience) in a new-revenue role and a strong track record of closing deals with customers with less than 100 employees
  • Strong prospecting, qualifying, and negotiating skills; consultative sales approach with a product-centric mindset
  • Experience working with sales development and deploying a territory or vertical focused revenue strategy
  • Interest in financial services products and a desire to create strategic relationships that help our customers succeed
  • Excitement to work in a high-growth environment and to help build processes and tools as needed
  • Desire to get (more) technical and the ability to learn the ins and outs of Plaid's APIs

We'd love to hear from you! Please apply through our careers page and include a resume, LinkedIn, and a short description of your relevant background and interests.
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!
