Senior Software Engineer (Backend/Fullstack), Invoices Team
- San Francisco, CA
We believe the economy is better when everyone has access. When everyone has room to grow. No one should be left out because the cost is too great or the technology too complex. We started with a little white credit card reader but haven’t stopped there. We’re empowering the independent electrician to send invoices, setting up the favorite food truck with a delivery option, helping the ice cream shop pay its employees, and giving the burgeoning coffee chain capital for a second, third, and fourth location. We’re here to help sellers of all sizes start, run, and grow their business—and helping them grow their business is good business for everyone.
Square Invoices is the easiest way for merchants to close sales and collect payments remotely. Our customers rely on our products because they are well designed, easy to use, and integrated with their business. We are a full stack, product oriented team, spanning across engineering, design, product, and marketing. You'll have a seat at the table in roadmap and strategy decisions and will play a critical role in helping the team accomplish our industry leading growth goals.
Our team is focused, fast-moving, and rapidly growing with an abundance of growth and impact opportunities.
