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. Our team maintains a self-serve platform connecting all Square products to power day-to-day operations (such as fraud investigations and sales). The Business Platform Engineering team 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. At the same time, we take insights from our partnerships and turn that into new features for teams to more easily integrate into our platform in the future.
As Square grows, we are building out the next generation of this platform: a GraphQL API gateway that will connect all entities across the ecosystem (including Cash App and Tidal). Our team has developed many patterns for integrating into our platform on our backend Ruby on Rails application, but we are looking for someone to help steer these patterns towards a more self-service architecture with GraphQL. We are looking for engineers who are passionate about building sustainable platform architectures and understanding the needs of our internal customers.
