Finance has always been an industry built on data, but mostly keeping that data siloed, opaque or inaccessible. Plaid has been on the forefront of changing that approach, helping consumers be the ultimate owner of their financial information and deciding where they want it to go on their behalf. And the company has now become a foundational piece of the emerging fintech stack across the globe. There’s lots more work to be done though and Plaid recently raised a $425 million Series D financing to continue investing in its people, product and mission. The company is truly ‘just getting started’ and hiring, hiring, hiring.
