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.
Come join one of the many teams within Seller at Square – we build the products that our millions of sellers use every day to run and grow their businesses. Each team included below has unique and interesting opportunities – there’s almost certainly something for you!
Within Square’s Seller team, we value (and practice) deep collaboration between teams and disciplines. You’ll work with engineers across the organization to implement solutions to problems with direct impact on our customers. You’ll work regularly with product managers and designers to ensure we’re shipping the right things to our sellers and iterating based on their feedback.
Working within Seller iOS is a unique opportunity in the mobile industry – you’ll get to work in one of the largest most established mobile ecosystems in existence – learning a lot from our team of 100+ iOS engineers in the process.
We have opportunities across the following teams:
The Invoices team helps Square merchants manage their customer workflow and get paid remotely. We facilitate the merchant's relationship with their customers by providing them with the ability to send Estimates and collect payments through invoicing and our recurring billing platform.
As a member of the Invoices mobile team, you will work within Square’s Point of Sale code base and have the ability to impact all of the apps in our ecosystem including our standalone Invoices app.
Square’s POS systems puts the ability to deliver personalized customer experiences at the fingertips of any Square seller. Restaurants can offer regular customers their favorite menu items, respect dietary preferences, or remind a customer they have a Loyalty reward to redeem. The Customers Directory team has two primary responsibilities: (1) provide the building blocks that enable these customer-focused experiences across Square’s portfolio of products and (2) build the CRM product (Directory) that sellers rely on every day to manage their customer profiles. (1.46M Monthly Active Users)
As an iOS engineer on the Directory team, you’ll build the APIs, UI components, and product features that let sellers see the right customer information when they need it.
As Square has grown, so have our sellers – going from businesses with just a few employees, to many (sometimes hundreds or thousands!). Team Management provides business owners and managers the tools they need to monitor and manage their employees. This includes providing robust employee permission functionality within Point of Sale and Square Dashboard, plus allowing sellers to track their employees time with time cards. Team Management helps give our sellers the peace of mind that their business is running smoothly, even if they’re not physically present.
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.
