Fullstack Software Engineer, eCommerce

  • San Francisco, CA
  • Full-time

Company Description

When we launched the little white reader, we invented mobile, ubiquitous payments and enabled anyone to start, run, and grow a business. Ten years and billions of transactions later we’re reimagining commerce for businesses of all types and sizes—we’re enabling the independent electrician to send invoices, helping the beauty salon pay its employees, and giving the burgeoning coffee chain capital for a second, third, and fourth location. We’re working to find new and better ways to help businesses succeed on their own terms—and we’re looking for people like you to help shape tomorrow at Square.

  • BA/BS degree in computer science or equivalent,
  • 2+ years of practical experience building frontend single page applications (SPA),
  • 2+ years of practical full stack development work experience (ideally using PHP, and even Laravel),
  • Experience building large web applications in a distributed environment and can make pragmatic engineering decisions,
  • Interest in working full-stack, from optimizing database transactions to building distributed systems and frontend web applications,
