Senior Software Engineer, Point of Sale
- 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.
As our merchants businesses grow Square grows with them. Managing employees timecards, tips, paychecks and taxes has been a significant growing pain for merchants of all sizes and is a huge opportunity for innovation and simplification. That means that we're creating one of the basic building blocks for Square as it continues to grow and serve larger businesses. The APIs we define and the features we build enable Square to service customers of any size.
