Software Engineer, Retail (Full Stack)

  • Employees can work remotely
  • Full-time

Company Description

Since we first opened our doors in 2009, the world of commerce has evolved immensely – and so has Square. After enabling anyone to take a payment and never miss a sale, we saw sellers stymied by disparate, outmoded products and tools that wouldn’t work together. So we expanded into software and started building integrated, omnichannel solutions – to help sellers sell online, manage inventory, run a busy kitchen, book appointments, engage loyal buyers, and hire and pay staff. And across it all, we’ve embedded financial services tools at the point of sale, so merchants can access a business loan and manage their cash flow all in one place.

Today, we’re a partner to sellers of all sizes – large, enterprise-scale businesses with complex commerce operations, sellers just starting out, as well as merchants who began selling with Square and have grown larger over time. As our sellers scale, so do our solutions. We all grow together.

There is a massive opportunity in front of us. We’re building a business that is big, meaningful, and lasting. And we are helping sellers around the world do the same.

Job Description

Retailers have struggled too long with clunky, outdated and disconnected tools. Even as mammoth Retail and e-commerce forces threaten smaller merchants, we are empowering those merchants with simple solutions to complex problems - like predictive analytics and fluid, omni-channel capabilities to meet customers wherever they are - to always make the sale. 

As a Full Stack Engineer on the Retail Inventory team, you will build solutions that present elegant UI for complex problems, saving sellers time and reducing anxiety as they strive to manage and understand their inventory – logistics that are at the very heart of every retailer’s business. In doing so, you’ll regularly work with and learn from other engineers, our product manager, designer, and other cross-functional partners.

You will:

  • Deliver highly impactful tools for Retail sellers to manage and understand their inventory
  • Build, test, and ship end-to-end features in a large microservice architecture and sophisticated web applications
  • Work across platforms to power remarkable frontend experiences with robust backend services and APIs
  • Work with a world-class team of experienced and dedicated engineers and designers
  • Support features in our web and mobile products by designing and building into Square platform services
  • Deliver features to our growing base of subscribers, shipped at a rapid cadence


You have:

  • 2+ years of full-stack development experience, including web applications, and an excellent command of engineering fundamentals
  • Innate curiosity, and a desire to learn and teach
  • Openness to continuing to grow your breadth and depth
  • Eagerness to share your own ideas, and openness to those of others
  • Unwavering commitment to customer experience and product quality
  • An academic attitude towards software development practices
  • Experience with a Javascript UI framework like React, Ember.js, or Angular is preferred, but not required

Technologies we use and teach:

  • Javascript and Ember.js
