Square has grown into a platform of product services that help merchants run their business. From the inside, these product services are organized into business units with their own product and engineering teams. Underneath, there’s a platform team that supports this plethora of products.
The Business Platform Engineering org works with product engineers at Square to ensure they meet their operational requirements as easily as possible. We do this by partnering with teams for their product launches and helping them integrate into our operations platform, Regulator. At the same time, we take learnings from our partnerships and turn that into new features for teams to more easily integrate into our platform in the future.
As one of the oldest code bases at Square, we are constantly evolving and refactoring, creating better patterns and adding new features in order to meet the demands of different business requirements throughout all products. Currently our team has developed many patterns for integrating into our platform on our backend Ruby on Rails application, but we are in need of someone to help steer these patterns towards a more self-service architecture. Ideally, you love refactoring code, cause we have a lot!
