Senior Software Engineer

  • Dublin, Ireland
  • Full-time

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

Risk Engineering works to protect Square and our customers from fraud and payment disputes. We keep our customers safe while €20B+ flows through Square annually, and we allow the entire company to take risks and grow. To do this, we build systems to detect and respond to potential fraud threats, provide outstanding tools to agents for investigating fraud events, and give our customers seamless web and mobile experiences to manage and fight payment disputes. Our mission is to protect Square, protect our customers, and make a complicated and sometimes painful process understandable to all. 

This is an exciting time for Square as we have recently launched within the Irish market as part of our plans to continue growing our merchant network globally. We’re now looking for multiple full-stack and backend engineers to join our new Risk team in Dublin, Ireland. In this role, you’d be among the first engineers joining the company in Dublin, establishing a team that is committed to keeping our customers safe from fraud and mitigating the impact of financial loss. You’d work closely with other engineering teams, as well as our Risk Operations and Policy team here in Dublin, and you’d work cross-functionally on a global scale to strategize on and deliver the product roadmap. As part of this growth we need to ensure that our protection scales to meet this new demand.
