Company Description

Cash App is the fastest growing financial brand in the world. Initially built to take the pain out of peer-to-peer payments, Cash App has gone from a simple product with a single purpose to a dynamic app with over 36 million monthly active users. We are bringing a better way to send, spend, invest, and save to anyone who has ever sought an alternative to the traditional banking system. 

Loved by customers and pop culture, we’ve consistently held the top spot for finance in the App Store for many years, seeing more engagement with millions of followers across social media in a day than most brands see in a year. We are building an ecosystem to redefine the world’s relationship with money by making it universally accessible.

We want to hire the best talent regardless of location. Our employment model is distributed, offering the opportunity to collaborate with teams across the world in San Francisco, New York, St. Louis, Portland, Toronto, Kitchener-Waterloo, Sydney, and Melbourne.

Job Description

As an Engineering Manager on the Cash App Investing team, you will use your seasoned technical knowledge and exceptional soft skills to:

  • Support engineers on the team through coaching, mentorship, and advocacy.
  • Facilitate and support team structures, both functional and product.
  • Support multiple stakeholders including product, brokerage operations, compliance, legal, accounting, treasury, support, and other engineering teams.
  • Facilitate cross functional aspects of operating the Investing workstream.

  • Ability to work autonomously, in ambiguity and collaboratively
  • Strong communication skills
  • Worked on systems where data consistency and availability is required
  • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science or equivalent experience
  • Demonstrated technical expertise on previous projects
  • Have a successful track record of mentoring and growing teams
