Software QA Lead (Mobile)

  • San Francisco, CA
  • 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

The Square Point of Sale (SPOS) team owns Square’s flagship product for sellers. When you go into a coffee shop and sign with your finger on an iPad or Square Register, you’re using SPOS. We have the privilege of building tools that help millions of sellers do their job every day.

The SPOS team focuses on building features that work for sellers of all sizes and business types – from the plumber down the street, to your local flower shop, to the multi-store coffee shop with 10s or even 100s of employees. The hardware that the SPOS app runs on is designed to match this diversity – our features work on everything from an iPhone up to our own Square Register hardware, and everything in between.

As a QA Lead you’ll be responsible for setting up the overall quality strategy for the SPOS product team. You will review product requirement documents, design specifications, and lead development of the test plans. You will come up with the manual and automated test suites for the Point of Sale system. In this role, you will be supervising a team of QA engineers and will work closely with the cross functional stakeholders such as product management, design, and engineering teams to ensure the quality test criteria are met before shipping the final product.
