Full Stack Software Engineer, Restaurants

  • Atlanta, GA
  • Full-time

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

As a software engineer on the Restaurants team, you'll build and maintain the services that power our web and mobile applications, as well as the web-based dashboard that enables restaurant owners to set up, manage, and learn from their business. You'll collaborate closely with product managers, designers, and other engineers on a daily basis. You'll also work with our partners across the company in shared codebases, and contribute directly to Square’s platform services when needed.
