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

Square has grown into a platform of product services that help merchants run their business. From the inside, these product services are segmented into business units with their own product and engineering teams. Underneath, there's a platform organization that supports this plethora of products.

Our team, Square Console, is part of this larger platform organization. We work with platform teams to help expose functionality of their services via internally accessible browser-based tooling. We build tools for quick and easy deployment, service provisioning, secret management, database monitoring, user administration and so on. We use the latest and greatest technology stack: React.js, TypeScript, Webpack, Jest and styled-components. Our goal is to write well tested, maintainable and readable code that could be understood by engineers with no front-end experience with little effort.

If this sounds interesting, here are some of the tasks that you would work on as part of our team:

  • Develop, and deploy incremental improvements to our front-end platform.

  • Write reusable components and libraries. 

  • Write and review engineering design documents and guide product design.

  • Work with many teams at Square.

  • Write clean, concise and well-tested code.

  • Work autonomously with no micromanagement or oversight.

Qualifications

You have:

  • 2+ years of industry related experience

  • Knowledge and understanding of the front-end development process (JavaScript, DOM, CSS).

  • Troubleshooting skills through the entire stack, front-end to back-end.

  • Experience with React.js stack.

  • Good eye for UI and UX.

Technologies we use: TypeScript, React.js, Webpack, Antd, React Router, ESLint, Prettier, Jest, GraphQL, Styled Components, React Testing Library and many more.
