Company Description

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.

Job Description

The Restaurants team at Square is reimagining the hospitality industry to empower today's restaurants with simple, elegant software and efficient workflows.  Restaurants today operate in an increasingly dynamic landscape, and we're building a modern product ecosystem to support this by using technology to unlock new workflows, revenue streams, and means of communication.  Our focus is on efficiency, automation, and reliability: themes of paramount importance in a fast-paced environment where great hospitality is key.

As a frontend engineer on the Restaurants team, you will develop elegant, intuitive solutions for restaurant owners to manage their business.  Our management system is called Dashboard, a powerful web app used to build menus and customize workflows, set up and configure points of sales and other devices, view reporting and analytics, and more -- every aspect of running a food and beverage business.  You’ll work together with other engineers on your team as well as cross-functionally with your designer and product manager to create the best solutions for our customers’ needs.  

Our team started in NYC and we’re now thrilled to be expanding to new locations.  Come join our small, fast-growing team in Atlanta to be on the ground floor for our exciting growth!

What you will learn and do:

  • You'll create beautiful, unique products that empower anyone to run a restaurant

  • You'll design and build into Square Dashboard, working on features that power the products in our Restaurant ecosystem

  • You'll work closely and collaboratively with designers, product managers, and other engineers; very often across team boundaries

  • You'll ship reliable software through continuous integration, test automation, and in-depth code reviews

  • You'll find simple, elegant solutions to hard problems

  • You'll grow as an engineer, and as you do you'll lift others around you


What you bring to the team and to Square:

  • Motivation to build beautiful, intuitive products for the food and drink hospitality industry

  • Curiosity, and a desire to learn and teach

  • Empathy for your customers and colleagues

  • Eagerness to share your own ideas, and openness to those of others

  • Experience working in JavaScript, HTML, and CSS

  • Experience with modern JavaScript frameworks a benefit, but not a requirement

  • Familiarity with back end technologies a bonus (we use Java, Ruby, and Go)

Technologies we use and teach:

  • ES6 JavaScript

  • Ember JS

  • SCSS

  • Ruby on Rails
