Company Description

Square builds common business tools in unconventional ways so more people can start, run, and grow their businesses. When Square started, it was difficult and expensive (or just plain impossible) for some businesses to take credit cards. Square made credit card payments possible for all by turning a mobile phone into a credit card reader. Since then Square has been building an entire business toolkit of both hardware and software products including Square Capital, Square Terminal, Square Payroll, and more. 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.

Job Description

UI Systems

UI Systems is building Square’s universal design system. This new design system will be deployed across all of Square’s seller facing products on iOS, Android and web, plus promote our public marketing website. This includes our flagship products Point of Sale, Square Register, and Square Terminal. Put simply, this team is building the new public face of Square.

We’re not only building a design system, though: our mandate is wider than that. UI Systems is also building the core UI frameworks and tools needed to make building, testing, and maintaining UI easy and fast at scale: we’re supporting nearly 200 mobile engineers (and growing!) with our work across Android and iOS.

Why are we doing this? As Square grows, ensuring a consistent experience across many products becomes a larger and larger challenge. At Square, we value great and consistent design – UI Systems is here to ensure that Square’s customers and Square engineers alike have a delightful and consistent experience when working with, or working on our products – no matter who built them

Qualifications

You’ll need to…

  • Be proficient in Swift and/or Objective-C for development (we use both).

  • Enjoy working on mobile apps at all levels – from networking up to user interfaces and whatever’s in between.

  • Build high availability and highly resilient systems which can accept and accurately report payments no matter the network or device conditions.

  • Collaborate with iOS, Android, and Server engineers to ship features.

  • Work closely with product managers and designers to iterate on and define product scope and design.

  • Respond to customer feedback to continuously improve our products.

Leveling & Promotions

Square has a robust program in place to ensure that as an engineer you’re always learning, growing, and increasing your impact within the company – regardless of if you’re a new college graduate, or a senior engineer with 10+ years of experience.
