  • 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

We are looking for a platform-focused full-stack engineer to join our Payment Permissions Team. Our work is key to enabling our merchants to take payments with Square. We’re responsible for ensuring that we know who we’re doing business with, and that we are able to keep up to date with our merchants as their businesses change and grow. Customers rely on this platform to keep track of the sensitive details of their business, to manage who can make changes, and to make it painless to stay within the bounds of the law regardless of how their business evolves.

In this role, you’ll build and scale high-performance backend services, help power world-class front-end experiences within our web-based and mobile products, and work to further our dream of supporting any merchant, anywhere.

You will:

  • Build and evolve a robust permissions platform for our suite of financial products

  • Design and build systems/applications in a service oriented architecture

  • Operate and scale a rapidly growing platform that is vital to our customers

  • Help brainstorm solutions and build robust systems to solve customer problems

  • Build reliable support for product data logging and metrics

  • Work closely with product, engineering, analytics, and risk teams

Qualifications

You have:

  • BS/BA degree or equivalent practical, working experience (5+ years preferred)

  • Strong programming skills

  • Great communication skills and enjoy working cross-functionally

Nice to have:

  • Experience with Ruby, Go, or JavaScript

  • Experience contributing to medium to large scale feature releases

  • Knowledge of payments or fintech

Technologies we use and teach:

  • Ruby on Rails, Go, Ember.js, TypeScript and more

  • MySQL, DynamoDB

  • Protocol Buffers, Terraform, Kubernetes and Envoy

  • AWS and other cloud platforms
