We are looking for an experienced, staff-level engineer to accelerate our mobile development teams - starting by leading and supporting adoption of Kotlin Multiplatform for Mobile (KMM) in Square for Restaurants products.
Restaurants today operate in an increasingly dynamic landscape, and we're building a modern product ecosystem to support this. The Restaurants team at Square empowers Food & Drink businesses of all kinds to launch, manage, and grow their businesses through advanced workflows, specialized products, business insights, and inclusion in the greater Square ecosystem. In everything we build, we focus on efficiency, automation, and reliability: themes of paramount importance in an environment where great hospitality is essential.
Report to the Restaurants engineering lead and work with the Restaurants engineering leadership team to set a developer acceleration strategy, with KMM as a central initiative.
Work with engineers, engineering managers, and product managers on Restaurants product development teams to help those teams incrementally and effectively learn, adopt, and realize value from KMM.
Identify technical and organizational challenges our teams will face with KMM, chart a course for overcoming them over time, and lead efforts to implement your plan.
Work hands-on to introduce KMM into our Android and iOS codebase, addressing developer workflow, continuous integration, testing, artifact management, and other technical challenges that arise – pairing or otherwise working directly with product, platform, and build/release engineers.
Help nurture and grow a community of staff and senior engineers across Square with similar interests and problems, and work together to build company-wide competency in KMM.
