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

Square’s Payment Platform is an open, global financial services platform for developers who serve our merchants. It provides the necessary components to onboard new sellers by managing identity, processing their payments, transfering funds, and providing accounting, reconciliation, and reporting in a secure and compliant way. 

We are looking for a full-stack software engineer to join our Trusted Identity platform, leading a team that enables our merchants to get started taking payments with Square. We’re responsible for ensuring that we know who we’re doing business with, and that we are able to keep up to date with our sellers as their businesses change and grow. Customers rely on this platform to keep track of the sensitive details of their business, to manage who can make changes, and to make it painless to stay within the bounds of the law regardless of how their business evolves.

You will:

  • Build the full-stack software used to onboard new Square merchants all over the globe

  • Work with other engineers across Square to develop excellent product experiences

  • Hold yourself, and your teammates accountable to the standards of engineering that enables Square to safely move billions of dollars in payments and allow our customers to trust us with their sensitive data
