Python Engineer - Hardware
- Toronto, Canada
Square began with a simple yet revolutionary piece of hardware—the Square Reader. We have expanded that vision to give our merchants access to the latest secure payment technologies (contactless and chip cards) and easy-to-use Point of Sale products. Today our hardware carries over $30 billion in transactions annually. Measuring the performance of our hardware, and the journey in getting the hardware to our merchants, is essential in ensuring that our merchants’ experience with Square is as seamless as possible.
We need your help to collect data about our hardware, organize that data, and make it available to analysts across Square. As a member of the Hardware data engineering team, you will define, develop, and manage a variety of data infrastructure components and pipelines so that our analytics teams and collaborators have trusted data to inform decisions and insights.
