Technical Support Engineer // Plaid
April 28, 2020
Plaid’s products are being used to enable thousands of developers to build the next generation of financial services applications. When those developers have problems, they turn to the Plaid Support team. Our goal is to help our developers, as quickly and compassionately as possible, keep their applications running and their end-users happy. We quantify the scope and impact of these problems, we identify their causes, and when we can’t fix them ourselves, we work with our Growth and Engineering teams to reach a solution.
Technical Support Engineers (TSEs) manage issues from their first symptom to their eventual resolution, communicating with our customers and internal stakeholders throughout the process. People who succeed in this role tend to be empathetic, collaborative, and technically minded. TSEs are embedded within engineering teams at Plaid, and we have a high technical bar to ensure that we all speak the same language. We have aggressive goals, and we work on interesting, cross-functional projects in order to achieve them.
