At Plaid, our mission is to unlock financial freedom for everyone. There has never been a better time than now to start building the future of fintech with us. Plaid powers the tools millions of people rely on to live a healthier financial life. We work with thousands of companies like Venmo, SoFi, and Betterment, several of the Fortune 500, and many of the largest banks to make it easy for people to connect their financial accounts to the apps and services they want to use. Plaid’s network covers 12,000 financial institutions across the US, Canada, UK and Europe. Founded in 2013, the company is headquartered in San Francisco with offices in New York, Washington D.C., London and Amsterdam. #LI-Remote
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.
In this role, you'll be the individual helping us achieve this vision. Your focus will be on generating new enterprise deals and building strong, long-lasting relationships with large companies in the Western US. You'll be tasked with identifying and closing major deals across verticals in financial services, utilities, billing, insurance, and more.

Responsibilities

  • Build executive relationships and identify business value and impact of Plaid across your territory of accounts
  • Focus on a named account book of business with very high revenue potential per account, and a curated territory size
  • Go deep and wide in prospect accounts to build support for adopting Plaid
  • Deeply understand Plaid’s business value and technology advantage
  • Win as a team — in partnership with outbound sales development rep, account manager, technical account manager, implementation manager, product organization, and other members of your account pod

Qualifications

  • Significant experience (7+ years of quota-carrying experience) in a new-revenue role and a strong track record of closing enterprise-level deals (3+ years focused on enterprise customers) with large target customers
  • Ability to sell to a technical solution to a business buyer — develop and sell in the value story at the executive level.
  • 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
Our mission at Plaid is to unlock financial freedom for everyone. To support that mission, we seek to build a diverse team of driven individuals who care deeply about making the financial ecosystem more equitable. We recognize that strong qualifications can come from both prior work experiences and lived experiences. We encourage you to apply to a role even if your experience doesn't fully match the job description. We are always looking for team members that will bring something unique to Plaid!
