Software Engineering Manager, Square for Restaurants
- Toronto, Canada
Restaurants today operate in an increasingly dynamic landscape, and we're building a modern product ecosystem to support this. The Restaurants team at Square empowers Food & Drink businesses of all kinds to start, run, and grow their businesses through advanced workflows, specialized products, business insights, and inclusion in the greater Square ecosystem. In everything we build, we focus on efficiency, automation, and reliability: themes of paramount importance in a fast-paced environment where great hospitality is key.
The Restaurants team is looking for an experienced manager to lead a new product development team, focused on helping restaurant owners and managers start using the Square for Restaurants ecosystem to effectively run their business.
Square has developed a suite of products that work in concert to meet the needs of all kinds of restaurants, as well as integrations with third-party tools that are crucial to restaurants' operations. The breadth of that ecosystem presents challenges beyond the scope of any one product. This new team will focus on improving our customers' experience from raising awareness of Square's offerings, through product choice and evaluation, to solution configuration and integration across the ecosystem. In addition, this team will also be central to launching our solutions in new markets.
