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

Mobile Testing Frameworks & Infrastructure team develops tools and frameworks to ensure that mobile tests are fast, reliable, and easy to create. We strive to automate testing as much as possible so that the need for manual QA testing is minimal and ensure that the quality of existing tests are higher. 

 We're looking for folks who are excited to solve problems and find solutions that empower hundreds of mobile developers to ship high quality code faster. You will be part of a small team who partners closely with the other mobile platform teams who support the entire mobile development lifecycle as well as all the product engineering teams. This is a high force multiplier, cross-functional team aiming to enhance the development experience for all mobile developers within Square. 

You will:

  • Develop and maintain frameworks for high level testing capabilities.

  • Develop tooling and metrics to understand what is being tested and how it is tested.

  • Maintain and optimize the infrastructure to run tests both locally and on CI.

  • Create and evangelize processes to help enforce test quality.

  • Own the success of your team's projects, and deliver quantifiable results on schedule.

  • Work with world-class, experienced, and dedicated engineers.


You have:

  • 3+ years of experience working in the Android ecosystem.

  • Proficiency in Java or Kotlin for development (we use both).

  • Experience working on mobile apps at all levels – from networking up to user interfaces and whatever's in between.

  • Ability to respond to customer feedback to improve our frameworks and tools.

  • An eagerness to share your ideas, and openness to those of others. Quickly and easily articulate issues and what needs to be done to resolve them
