About the role:

The foundation of our product rests upon our ability to correctly, promptly, and securely pull in our users’ financial data from their underlying institutions. We can win by doing better at this problem than our competitors, and if we can’t solve it well, the rest of the product is rendered useless. While we work with multiple data providers (like Plaid, Finicity, and MX) to sync this data, ultimately, users correctly hold us responsible for the quality of our integrations. We’ve been an innovator in this space (for instance, we were one of the first products to work with multiple data partners), but this problem is far from solved, especially as Open Banking evolves.
