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

Right now, thousands of traditional brick and mortar sellers are starting to sell online for the first time. This e-commerce expansion was a trend before 2020, but it's been massively accelerated by the current pandemic.

Selling online is a new and challenging world for many sellers. Beyond the foundation of simply having an online store, sellers need an omnichannel presence across many marketplaces; they need to be everywhere that buyers are. Further, these sellers now need to handle new workflows like managing orders and returns across the globe instead of simply in-person at a register.

You will:

  • Provide remarkable user experiences powered by your code
  • Work with designers, product managers, data scientists, and other developers to understand our problem space and create elegant solutions
  • Join a supportive and sometimes silly team passionate about test-driven development, documentation, and growth in the craft of software engineering
  • Establish new patterns and contribute to shared components to accelerate frontend development for the entire team, and sometimes all of Square
  • Relative to your experience level, assume leadership roles for features and projects
  • Work with state of the art technology and technologists forging new paradigms for the industry
  • Learn from us, and help us learn from you!

Qualifications

You have:

  • 3+ years of professional software engineering experience
  • 1+ years of a frontend focus in Ember, React, or Angular
  • Experience not only in writing great code, but also in understanding the struggles faced by users of the products you build
  • The ability to embrace periods of ambiguity and be part of the force lighting a path forward for the team
  • A lifelong interest in both learning and mentoring others
  • Bonus: leadership experience or interest
