Software Engineer, Risk Tools
- Toronto, Canada
- Employees can work remotely
Last year, the pandemic forced the world to explore new ways of conducting business. Square hustled to help our sellers apply for PPP loans, build safety clauses into their contracts, and move their sales from in-person to online.
As businesses pivot, so do the fraudsters and bad actors working to take advantage of them. Our team helps sellers protect their business from fraudulent transactions while still accepting payments from legitimate buyers. We build seamless and intuitive solutions for our sellers, leveraging Square’s systems, machine learning models, and industry expertise to detect and respond to potential fraud threats. Every seller is different, and our job is to equip them with the best information and tools to make the right trade-offs for their business.
See some examples of our work here.
