  • Learn about the sales funnel from inbound lead and outbound campaigns through to deal closure and contract negotiation
  • Help develop new client verticals and define Plaid use cases within those verticals
  • Identifying key decision makers within prospective accounts to map out organizational structure and Plaid integration opportunities 
  • Write email communication for corresponding marketing campaigns to generate new sales prospects
  • Participate in simulations of customer qualifying calls. Simulations will prepare you to lead calls with executive-level prospects

What we're looking for

  • Demonstrated interest working with customers and explaining technical processes
  • Interest in financial services and technical products; a high degree of intellectual curiosity
  • 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 
  • Graduating in December 2021 or Spring 2022
